Premier League players to return to contact training

The resumption of the Premier League season is ever closer after clubs agreed for players to resume contract training in groups.

Squads and players will now be able to train and engage in tackling while minimising any close contact.

Players will continue to be tested for the coronavirus twice a week.

This is stage two of 'Project Restart', and it's been agreed with Premier League clubs, managers, the English PFA, the LMA and the UK Government.

The move makes it more likely that the season will be completed, as per the Bundesliga in Germany.

Dates such as June 19th and June 26th have been mentioned as possible landmarks for the season to return, with nine games remaining for most clubs. All matches would have to be played behind closed doors, and venues are still to be decided.

Liverpool only require two more wins for a first title in 30 years.

It was reported in the Mirror earlier today that the Premier League may come to an agreement with television companies for matches to be staggered across Saturdays and Sundays, with kick off times at Noon, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm on the weekend.

There is also the possibility of midweek games occurring at 6pm and 8pm, in line with the format for the Champions League.
