The Premier League will resume on June 17, with 92 games set to be played in order to wrap up the 2019-20 season.

Chelsea will be aiming to finish off the campaign in at least fourth position, but the Blues will be ready to face fierce competition from Manchester United, a surprise package in Sheffield United, as well as our London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas has admitted that it would be a tough end to the season and has told Frank Lampard to be wary of his youngsters.

“I don’t think there is any doubt that Liverpool and Manchester City have gone by a distance,” the former Arsenal striker told Sky Sports.

“Leicester City can still be caught, they have got some awkward games to come, there’s no doubt about that, but they are in a very nice position.

“Chelsea are questionable because their youngsters will be refreshed and everyone thinks they will get going, but sometimes the youngsters actually love the audience because they don’t have any fear, so I think because of that, Chelsea are vulnerable.”

Nicholas added: “I would like to think that after the awkward Man City game Arsenal have actually got some relatively good, winnable games.

“But everything is questionable with them, we know that. It’s hard to predict. There is a real fight going to happen here.

“Sheffield United have been the second best team of the season after Liverpool but I think if anybody has been disrupted it might be Sheffield United.

“We will judge them on the opening Wednesday against Aston Villa away, so we will wait and see that one.

“I just think Arsenal can kick on a little bit, more in hope with the heart ruling the head than anything else but I expect Manchester United and Arsenal to probably be there with Chelsea.”
