Could the season resume in April?
Both Arsenal and West Ham will reportedly return to training soon, with the Premier League scheduled to resume in early April.
The spread of the coronavirus has caused havoc on the sporting calendar.
All football in England was suspended until April 3rd, as the virus continued to spread.
The Premier League looked set to continue as normal before the last round of games.
However, that decision came before Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was tested positive.
The Premier League then announced that the league would resume in April.
Now, after a period of self-isolation, both Arsenal and West Ham will reportedly return to training soon.
Arsenal & West Ham set to return to training
As reported by the Independent, Arsenal’s players and Mikel Arteta will return to training next Tuesday.
All players and staff had to undergo a 14-day isolation period after Arteta’s positive test.
According to the Independent’s report, ‘that ends on Tuesday and, as things stand, the club’s London Colney training base will reopen and training will resume.’
Arsenal are scheduled to play Norwich on April 4th.
West Ham are also set to return to training, according to another report from the Independent.
David Moyes previously went into self-isolation, having come into contact with Mikel Arteta.
“Rush Green, like all other club sites, has undergone a deep clean and we will be resuming open-air, drill-based sessions soon, with all necessary measures and precautions of course taken to ensure there is no risk to players’ health,” Moyes explained.
West Ham will face off against Tottenham when the Premier League returns.
