After 100 days away, Premier League football will finally return to our screens tonight – and it’s fair to say Ant and Dec are excited to see it back!
Newcastle don’t play until 2pm on Sunday, with us set to face a high-flying Sheffield United at St James’ Park in our opening game after the break, but top flight football will return tonight.
Aston Villa will play Sheffield United at an empty Villa Park at 6pm, while Manchester City face Arsenal at the Etihad at 8.15pm, with both games set to be shown live on Sky Sports.
Here’s what Geordie duo Ant & Dec posted on social media ahead now football is finally back!
It’s been a long three months, and an ongoing Saudi takeover hasn’t helped, so it’ll be nice to see football on our screens once again after three months away.
It’ll be strange watching games from our sofas instead of sitting inside St James’ Park, but will offer a welcome distraction from life in lockdown – which for many has been dominated by a takeover saga that’s gone from extremely exciting to unbearably exhausting.
With us set to face Sheffield United on Sunday and Aston Villa in our next game a week today, the pair’s clash at Villa Park tonight may well be worth a watch!
