THE return of the Premier League is set to kick-off with Friday Night Football live on TV - with Tottenham vs Manchester United favourite for the prime spot.

Top-flight football in England is pencilled in to restart on Friday June 12following the coronavirus lockdown.

However, that could be pushed back to Friday June 19 to allay players' fears about rushing back to soon.

And that night's game will be shown live on TV along with ALL nine other matches that weekend - on Saturday, Sunday and Monday evening.

The Daily Mail claim TV companies have been warned of a bumper restart by football bosses.

The suggestion is that there will be one live match apiece on Friday and Monday evenings.
