According to reports, the Premier League is targeting May 18 as a potential date when teams can and should return to training after about two months of the league being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The League’s resumption which has been tagged as ‘Project Restart’, propose that football should resume in June.

Some Premier League clubs have opened their training ground for players to train, and Chelsea have now joined as well in reopening their training ground, as Cobham has been opened for individual workouts — with players scheduled in hourly slots to avoid close contact and maintain physical distancing guidelines.

A member of the medical staff will supervise the workouts, also from a safe distance.

Meanwhile, the seven players who recently returned from lockdown overseas, are undergoing a government-suggested 14-day isolation period before they’ll be permitted to take part in the training.

The League’s resumption which has been tagged as ‘Project Restart’, propose that football should resume in June.

According to the proposed project, all the players and staff would be tested twice per week before starting training in small groups. The league will only organise drive-through testing facilities away from training grounds.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
