The Premier League could return next month after the UK Government opened the door for live sporting action to resume in June (BBC Sport).

The Sun now reveal that Tottenham could be among the first two teams back in action as the Lilywhites’ game against Manchester United may kick off proceedings.

The report reveals that authorities are working towards restarting the league on June 12 but the date could be pushed back to June 19 in order to ease players’ fears about rushing back too soon.

While there were initially plans to play one match every day, similar to World Cup proceedings, it is said that games will now only be hosted from Friday to Monday.

This will include one game on Friday, one on Monday, and four each on Saturday and Sunday. Kick-off times will be set in such a way that all games can be watched live on the television, with five games per weekend free-to-air.

While the schedule is yet to be confirmed, the report asserts that Manchester United’s trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is likely to be the first one back.

While there are still some hurdles to be crossed before the return of the Premier League is confirmed, the prospect of a June return looks very promising at the moment. The authorities will be watching the Bundesliga closely to see how they deal with potential challenges.
