May 28 will go down in history as the day in which the Premier League and its clubs agreed on a return date for the 2019-20 season to resume. After a pause that lasted over three months, the English top-flight will continue the ongoing campaign in just 20 days, with two games kicking things off during the second half of June.
Initially, Premier League execs and its teams had agreed to go back to action on June 12, but given the first COVID-19 tests performed on players and staff, everyone involved on this matter agreed to push the date back to June 20. Nevertheless, all action will kick off on June 17, with Manchester City hosting Arsenal and Aston Villa playing against Sheffield United at Villa Park.
