If there is another suspension due to the coronavirus, or if players turn out positive during COVID-19 tests after Project Restart kicks off, it will increase the probability of the current season being curtailed, according to the report.

The Premier League are determined to start the new season in September come what may, which means that if the current 2019/20 season doesn’t finish by then, the PL will start the new season anyway.

The Premier League are aiming for the current season to be restarted on June 19 or 26 provided that there are no more positive COVID-19 test results for players or staff.
