THE PREMIER LEAGUE has confirmed the fixture schedule for the first three rounds of matches ahead of the resumption of the 2019/20 season.

The English top-flight is due to resume on Wednesday 17 June, if all safety requirements are in place, after a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All matches will be played behind closed doors, with Aston Villa and Sheffield United set to kick proceedings off on the opening evening before reigning champions Manchester City and Arsenal go head-to-head later that night.

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United continue their respective campaigns the following evening while runaway league leaders Liverpool recommence their bid for the coveted silverware against Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday 21 June.

The venue for that fixture remains unclear.

It was confirmed last week that the remaining 92 matches will be broadcast live in the UK by the Premier League’s existing broadcast partners, while games will be run on almost every day between 17 June and 2 July.
