The Premier League returns this evening after a three-month pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic – here's all you need to know about its resumption.

The Reds, of course, pick up the action on Sunday evening with a scheduled trip to Goodison Park for an encounter against Everton. 

But the top-flight programme begins again tonight for those teams with a game in hand. Aston Villa host Sheffield United before Arsenal travel to Manchester City. 

What's new? 

  • The first 12 matches of the restarted campaign will see players have their names replaced by 'Black Lives Matter' on the back of their shirts. They will also sport a Black Lives Matter logo and a badge thanking the NHS for the rest of 2019-20. 
  • Teams can now make five substitutes, instead of three, in all matches until the end of the season. However, sides will only have three opportunities to make changes throughout to minimise disruption to the game.
  • Clubs are permitted to name nine substitutes for the remainder of 2019-20.
  • There will be a drinks break – lasting no more than one minute – taken midway through each half. 

How can I watch? 

With games being played behind closed doors, all 92 remaining matches will be broadcast live in the UK by the Premier League's existing partners: Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport and Amazon Prime.

What do Liverpool need? 

Two wins would guarantee Liverpool their first league title in 30 years. 

However, if Manchester City are beaten by Arsenal, then the Reds will be confirmed as champions with victory over Everton.
