Tottenham host Manchester United on 19 June (8pm), before the first televised Saturday 3pm kick-off in the Premier League era as Brighton host Arsenal the following day. On Saturday evening, the BBC will show its first-ever live Premier League game when Bournemouth host Crystal Palace (7.45pm).

Liverpool’s trip to Everton for the Merseyside derby is scheduled for 7pm on Sunday 21 June and will be shown on Pick. That fixture, and Liverpool’s away game at Manchester City on 2 July, may still be moved to neutral venues. Liverpool’s home game against Palace on 24 June is set to be played at Anfield.

“We are pleased to provide fans with further updates on the provisional restart of the Premier League season,” said the league’s chief executive, Richard Masters. “I am delighted we are able to take another positive step towards the season returning in just under two weeks’ time.

 “We know it won’t be the same without our loyal supporters in stadiums but together with our broadcast partners, we are able to ensure fans can watch or listen to each match live from home.

“It is important that as many people as possible can access our games, so we are extremely happy that more than a third of our remaining fixtures will be televised free-to-air here in the UK.”
