During Game 02 of Premier Predictions this season, that’s in the New Year, they’ll be a Round which is split over two weekends – here’s why…
The 2019/20 campaign will be the first to feature a mid-season player break, following an agreement made by The Football Association, the Premier League and the EFL in June 2018.
It means the Premier League will split one round of matches in February over two weekends, with five matches taking place on the weekend commencing 8 February 2020 and the other five on the weekend commencing 15 February.
All five matches on each weekend will be broadcast live in the UK.
The announcement detailing which fixtures will be played on which of these two weekends will be made on or near to 13 December 2019 on premierleague.com.
With every club getting a two-week break from the Premier League, players will have time to recharge ahead of the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and the UEFA Europa League (UEL).
UCL and UEL fixtures will both take place in the week commencing 17 February.
