    Premier League

    Premier League football has been missing in action since a suspension was announced on March 13 in a bid to stop the spread of Covid-19.

    The league is set to return to Supersport on Wednesday, June 17 with strict conditions to be observed including playing behind closed doors. 

    Manchester City v Arsenal and Aston Villa v Sheffield United, two catch-up fixtures, will be played on June 17, before a first full round of fixtures running from Friday 19 to Monday 22 June.

    With league leaders Liverpool needing only two more wins to clinch the title, they could win it in their first fixture back away to Merseyside rivals Everton depending on Man City's results.
