Premier League clubs unanimously voted on Wednesday to resume contact training, a week after resuming non-contact training.

Matches pitting Manchester City against Arsenal and Aston Villa against Sheffield United will be the first fixtures, which will bring all the league's teams to 29 games played.

Players have recently returned to non-contact training and have undergone an extensive coronavirus testing programme since.

On May 1, clubs were understood to have been told that using eight to 10 neutral venues, and behind closed doors, was the only way the season could be safely completed. It's previously been widely reported that the Premier League intends to begin the 2020-21 season in September.

City's last game before football stopped was their loss to local rivals Manchester United.

The Canaries' fixtures were due to be played in the following order, with a home game against Everton to be rescheduled due to FA Cup action. Premier League players and staff will still be tested for COVID-19 twice a week, and anyone who tests positive is required to self-isolate for seven days.
