Clubs discussed the resumption plan – which is subject to government approval – at a meeting on Thursday and it is understood all agreed in principle.

The Premier League was suspended on 13 March because of the pandemic and it will be 100 days after Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on 9 March that competition will resume, with games now behind closed doors.

Manchester City v Arsenal was already scheduled to be shown on Sky Sports, while Aston Villa v Sheffield United was not listed for live coverage when selections were announced in February.

Safety guidelines are yet to be issued by the government and decisions will remain subject to the continuing fight against coronavirus.
