Premier League return: Fixtures, dates and how to watch remaining games

The 2019/20 Premier League season is due to return from a three-month coronavirus-enforced break on 17 June, but there are some details yet to be ironed out.

There are 92 fixtures still to be played, with every team needing to complete nine each, except Manchester City, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Sheffield United, who all have 10 clashes ahead of them.

While Liverpool have all but sealed the title with a 25-point lead, there is still much to play for.
