The Premier League will resume on 17 June after a 100-day hiatus because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The fixture list, including kick-off times, for the first 32 matches after the restart has been announced.

The title is almost certainly going to Anfield with Liverpool only a couple of wins away from their first Premier League title and a first league title in 30 years. The Champions League places are still up for grabs with Leicester, Chelsea, Man United, Wolves and Sheff United all battling for two spots but the real battle is down at the foot of the table where the relegation fight will resume with no fewer than 6 teams - Norwich, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Watford, West Ham and Brighton - all fighting to stay in the top division.

Yesterday Premier League teams agreed on a rule amendment that will see five substitutions, rather than three, being permitted in each match until the end of the season.

Teams will also be able to name nine substitutes instead of the usual seven.

Though teams can now make five substitutions, each will only have three opportunities to make changes throughout the match in order to minimise disruption to the game.

The remaining league schedule is set to be finalised later today but the fixtures below have been agreed in principle.
The schedule will follow plans to televise every game, meaning all fixtures are staggered until the final day.

Any word of any updated squads for this season? Anyone released/loan ended etc. And will players returning from loan spells be eligible for their parent clubs?
I know Loris Karius, for instance, can't train with Liverpool yet as even though his loan contract was terminated, he can't register for his parent club until the window opens and he can't play for Liverpool this season (I know he wouldn't anyway but just using the example). It's the same with Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling if their loans end without being extended, they can't play. Same with any returning loan player so the majority of the time they're being extended, Victor Moses another one.

Also with Liverpool, Harry Wilson has extended his Bournemouth loan and Adam Lallana has signed a 1-month contract extension so both will finish the season with the teams they played for before this all started. Nathaniel Clyne however, is expected to be released before July. Brewster should stay with Swansea in another loan extension.

Tomas Soucek also extended with West Ham, Ighalo extended with Man United. Sidibe is likely to extend his loan at Everton

Players can only play for the club they are registered with. So, for example, Danny Rose can only play for Newcastle, it doesn't matter if his loan is extended or not, he cannot play for Spurs.

The only proposed exceptions are the likes of Tom Heaton who was registered to play in the Premier League with Aston Villa for the 1st half of the season but left out of the 2nd squad due to injury. Aston Villa still hold his registration to play.

It really does feel like a mini World Cup coming up the way the fixtures will be coming thick and fast. I may not even bother getting dressed at the weekend, just slouch on the couch!

Whatever your allegiances it’s just fantastic to have it back.
