With all its magnificence, splendor and glamour returns the insatiable whetting appetite of the English Premier League with a blockbuster of a ‘leftover’ to be dealt with at the City of Manchester Stadium when Arsenal visit Manchester City.
The return pits two good friends and former colleagues as Mikel Arteta takes his Arsenal side north to take on Josep Guardiola’s scintillating and shimmering Cityzens.
It’s only fitting enough that the return of the EPL kicks off with a game that was first called off because of some of the first Coronavirus contact cases after a Europa League tie left Arsenal staff and players exposed to Olympiacos owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who had tested positive.
The Premier League Returns today with Arsenal vs Man City

But now fans can finally have a glimpse of their favorite players and clubs in action after 101 days of an enforced hiatus due to the pandemic with premier league returns today.
This game, though a game in hand, will have run away leaders Liverpool keenly following in on proceedings as a victory for the visitors could mean Liverpool potentially can be champions for the first time in three decades if they bag maximum points away to their cross-town neighbor’s Everton.
