The Sun reported this month that Tottenham’s game against Manchester United could kick off proceedings if and when the Premier League season finally returns.
A report from ESPN has now also suggested that the Premier League want to restart the season with the Lilywhites’ home clash against the Red Devils.
Teams have now resumed first-team training as they work towards getting their players fit for a potential mid-June restart.
ESPN have revealed that the Premier League want to resume action on a Friday night, therefore suggesting that Spurs could be in action as early as June 19.
However, it is said that the date could also be pushed back a further week to June 26 as there are concerns over whether players have had enough time to get match fit.
The report asserts that meetings will take place this week to finalise the restart date, establish when contact training can resume, and to discuss how the relevant risks can be managed.

Multiple reports seem to suggest that this week is crucial in determining if and when footballing action in the country will resume. I would be very surprised if the government or the Premier League backtrack on their commitment to restart the league next month given that infection rates seem to be on a very clear downward trend.
