According to the reports, the Premier League is planning to resume on 17 June with two fixtures, as Aston Villa host Sheffield United and Manchester City welcome Arsenal to the Etihad Stadium.
As reported by the Telegraph and the BBC, those matches are set to be played on a Wednesday night before a full round of action on 20 June. Those fixtures represent games in hand for the four clubs involved.
The match between Arsenal and Manchester City was supposed to be played on 11 March before it was postponed over coronavirus fears. The Premier League schedule came to a full halt once it emerged that the Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, had tested positive for the disease.
The full details of Project Restart reaching its objective are set to be revealed later, after a Premier League meeting was held on Thursday.
