Premier League on course to return on June 17 after latest coronavirus test results


A total of 13 positive cases have been confirmed since the Premier League began testing players and staff upon their return to training in mid-May.

Barring a spike in infections or any last-minute problems with Project Restart, the 2019/20 campaign will resume when Aston Villa host Sheffield United on June 17 at 6pm. Arsenal travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City later in the evening.

A Premier League statement on the latest coronavirus results said: “The Premier League can today confirm that on Thursday 4 June and Friday 5 June, 1,195 players and club staff were tested for COVID-19. Of these, zero have tested positive.

“The Premier League is providing this aggregated information for the purposes of competition integrity and transparency. No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public after each round of testing.”

The 30th round of Premier League action takes place on the weekend beginning June 19, with the matches set to come thick and fast as part of a summer of football.
