The Premier League is all set to return on the 17th of this month and teams will be determined to achieve their goals in the post-lockdown period.
The likes of Liverpool will be hoping to wrap up their first title in three decades whereas the likes of Villa, Norwich and Bournemouth will be looking to beat the drop this season.
Furthermore, the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham will be keen on securing Champions League qualification for the next season.
Finally, the minnows like Sheffield United and Wolves are knocking on the door of European qualification and they will be desperate to see it through.
There is still plenty to play for and the fans across the globe will be hoping for a spectacular return of English football.
The first game week will see some highly anticipated match ups between Manchester City and Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham and the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton.
It will be interesting to see how the players perform this week. Most of them could be rusty given the lack of action for a while now.
Clubs will be hoping to avoid a surge in injuries once the league resumes. Little time to build up the fitness levels could result in stress-induced injuries.
