There will be two matches today, Aston Villa-Sheffield United and Man City vs Arsenal which will be grand reopening match.
Many players have been back from their countries and have gone into the compulsory 7 days quarantine and those who come from a country with so much exposure to the virus will be quarantined for 14 days.
The rules are the same as we have on other leagues that have resumed like Serie A and Bundesliga. Five man substitution and a cooling break in each half of the match.
Taking us back, Arsenal have not won any match in the last five years at Ethihad stadium.
Players have come back fit from injury, players like Leroy Sane, and Aymeric Laporte could get a first half half play upon their return.
