The 2019-20 Premier League season will restart on Wednesday June 17, with Arsenal visiting Manchester City and Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United.
Play was suspended on March 13 after Gunners head coach Mikel Arteta tested positive for coronavirus, with most clubs having nine games left to play.
A total of 92 fixtures are still to be played and the clash with Arteta’s former club at the Etihad Stadium represents the game in hand both clubs have on the rest of the division.
A full fixture list will then be played on the weekend of June 19-21 with all matches being behind closed doors.
Premier League clubs returned to small group training, non-contact sessions last week and this week voted to start contact training in the next phase of their return to action protocol.
