English Premier League Returns in 48 Hours!
After three long months away from the pitch, the Premier League makes its return on Wednesday with a pair of matches: Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United and Manchester City vs. Arsenal.
England’s top flight will follow in the footsteps of a couple of its European counterparts as the top leagues in Germany and Spain have resumed – the Bundesliga on May 16 and La Liga this past weekend – while Italy’s Serie A gets back to action on June 20.
For those of you who need a refresher after 100 days without Premier League football, and for those who are just now looking to get acquainted with England’s top flight, here’s everything you need to know as action gets back underway.
JUNE 17 13:00 Aston Villa v Sheffield United
JUNE 17 15:15 Manchester City v Arsenal
The Premier League restarts with Liverpool a whopping 25 points clear of second-place Manchester City and well on its way to winning its first-ever Premier League title and first top-tier championship since 1990.
It’s a matter of when, not if.
Jurgen Klopp’s dominant side could clinch the title as soon as its first game back on June 21 in what would be a dramatic match away to cross-city rivals Everton, but would need Manchester City to lose to Arsenal on June 17 for that to happen. So we’re looking at June 24 at Anfield against Crystal Palace as the most likely candidate for the title-clinching match.
