Christian Pulisic - Chelsea - Close up

The return of the Premier League, and the chance to keep an eye on your favorite former US men's national team player or MLS export including Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic and the Newcastle United duo of Miguel Almiron and DeAndre Yedlin, is just around the corner.

The league announced a provisional restart date of June 17 for the 2019-20 season providing all safety requirements are met.

Clubs just recently started group training sessions after the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic on March 13.

Matches pitting Manchester City against Arsenal and Aston Villa against Sheffield United will be the first fixtures, which will bring all the league’s teams to 29 games played.

The goal is to complete the 90 remaining games by August 1. Like the German Bundesliga, which returned to play two weeks ago, matches will be played without fans in the stands.
