Liverpool will resume their quest for a first top-flight title in 30 years against city rivals Everton on June 21, as the Premier League released its revised fixture list for the first three weeks of the restarted season.
Football in England has been suspended since mid-March due to the
COVID-19 pandemic, but clubs have voted to restart the season on June 17
when second-placed Manchester City host Arsenal and Sheffield United
visit relegation-threatened Aston Villa.
Liverpool are 25 points clear at the top and are two victories away
from winning the Premier League, but will have a shot at securing the
title by beating Everton if City lose to Arsenal.
Other potential dates in the first three fixtures when Liverpool
could clinch the title are June 24, when they host Crystal Palace, and
July 2, when they face Manchester City.
The venues for Liverpool’s games against Everton and City are yet to be confirmed.
Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently eighth, host fifth-placed
Manchester United on June 19, while third-placed Leicester City travel
to Watford on Saturday, June 20.
Arsenal are back in action on the same Saturday with a trip to
Brighton and Hove Albion, while Villa play again on Sunday, June 21 when
they host fourth-placed Chelsea.
City play again on Monday, June 22, when they host mid-table Burnley.
All the matches will be broadcast live but take place without fans present.
