The first two fixtures will reportedly be the between the clubs with a game in hand, with Arsenal facing Manchester City and Sheffield United playing Aston Villa.
These developments come after teams voted in favour of returning to contact training this week.
So far, after 2,752 tests conducted throughout the league, 12 of them have come back positive, with one of those being Hornets’ defender Adrian Mariappa.
Watford FC have been in the news recently having had at least three of the positive tests that have come out in the first round of testing, and captain Troy Deeney has been publicly voicing his disapproval over returning to training so soon.
