Reports suggest clubs will be sent a schedule for how to finish the current season, based on the current lockdown measures being relaxed.

While Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to hold his first daily briefing today since recovering from coronavirus, lockdown measures have to be looked at every three weeks, with the next date being next Thursday, May 7th.

Clubs could potentially return to training mid-May, with some clubs already back at their training grounds, while respecting social distance measures, including Arsenal, West Ham and Spurs.

Burnley remain working individually to fitness programmes provided by the club's sports science team, with no change as of yet as regards a return to the Barnfield Training Centre.

Premier League players, in the plans, could be tested for Covid-19 next weekend, May 8th and 9th, and train in small groups from Monday, May 11th.

Clubs could train in quarantine, and have to wash their own strips, and arrive for sessions in their training kit.

Testing is expected to be available for players, staff and media at training grounds and stadiums.
