Clubs are still discussing the idea at a meeting which will conclude later on Thursday but it is understood all have agreed the remaining matches would then be played on the weekend of 19-21 June and the first to take place will be those the four teams involved have in hand.
Manchester City v Arsenal, Aston Villa v Sheffield United scheduled to be play on Wednesday making all clubs in the league level on 29 games.
GOOD NEWS! Premier League re-starting on June 17.
BAD NEWS! First game back is Arsenal away to Man City.
This all feels too early to me, let's not rush back into things…
