English Premier League to resume remaining season on June17

Liverpool is expecting to win title after 30 years

English football fans finally have some good news. They will be able to watch the top English clubs in action on their home screens in three weeks’ time. But they will have to wait longer to watch football matches in the stadium.
 English Premier League (EPL) clubs have agreed to restart the season on June 17.  But the remaining matches will be played without spectators in empty stadiums. The Premier League have desperately been trying to finalise plans to get the season back underway again following its suspension at the beginning of March amid the coronavirus crisis.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said in a statement: 'Today we have provisionally agreed to resume the Premier League on Wednesday 17 June. But this date cannot be confirmed until we have met all the safety requirements needed, as the health and welfare of all participants and supporters is our priority.

The first two matches on June 17 will be played between Manchester City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United. These two matches are the 'games in hand' for these four clubs, which will take all 20 Premier League teams up to 29 fixtures for the season.  
92 matches are going to be played in the remaining season. Liverpool is leading at the points table and expected to win the title. This will be first EPL title of Liverpool in 30 years. Liverpool has comfortable 25 point lead over its nearest rival Manchester City.

A defeat to Manchester City against Arsenal in the first match after the resumption and Liverpool victory against Everton will enough for Liverpool to clinch the title. With that, the race to qualify for next season's Champions League and a tight relegation battle will likely provide plenty of entertainment. Norwich City, Aston Villa and Bournemouth currently occupy the bottom three places in the table.  They will fight to lift them out of relegation zone.
