All 20 Premier League clubs will meet again on Thursday as discussions surrounding the resumption of the top-flight season continue - with Norwich City potentially discovering the dates of their remaining fixtures.

A restart date of June 17 has been provisionally agreed, with two scheduled midweek fixtures expected to be the first to resume prior to a full round of matches on the weekend of June 20.

The latest shareholders meeting will take place today as preparations are being ramped up towards the restart. Clubs will then have another meeting next week prior to the first set of fixtures between Aston Villa and Sheffield United, and Manchester City versus Arsenal.

Conversations surrounding neutral venues for six selected fixtures are set to held - with the national lead for football policing identifying fixtures which could lead to supporter congregation outside of the stadium.

Reports suggest that sides in the bottom half would want relegation scraped if the season was curtailed, despite the FA ruling it out and EFL chairman Rick Parry threatening legal action.

The small matter of VAR and an increased amount of substitutions are also expected to be on the agenda, with at least 14 clubs needing to vote through any changes.

City’s remaining nine fixtures are yet to be confirmed, with match schedules another topic set to be discussed as the Premier League ramps up plans for the restart.
