CAIRO_29 May 2020: The biggest league in the world is set to restart on 17 June after three months of suspension amid coronavirus outbreak.

The league returns with the two postponed games of the 29th fixture, Arsenal clash against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium and Aston Villa clash against Sheffield United at Villa park, while a full round of matches will take place on 19 and 20 June.

Former England International and BBC presenter Gary Lineker commented on the news, saying "coming back, it's coming back, it's coming, football's coming back!"

Premier League clubs returned to training sessions last week after two months of training at home amid the spread of coronavirus.

On 27 May, the clubs voted unanimously to move to phase two of "Project Restart", which allows to train as a group and engage in tackling while minimizing any unnecessary close contact.

The Premier League clubs agreed to a provisional end date of Saturday 25 July.
