Strict social distancing measures will be in place even as players have been told to be ready to wash their kits. The operation wash your kits directive may not be unconnected with the need to reduce cost even as premier league clubs worry about financial implication of the covid-19 pandemic that forced all sporting outfits to close shop.

Arsenal were the first Premier League club to welcome back members of their first-team squad, on April 27. Their players have been allowed to return to their London Colney training ground, but will continue to train individually in accordance with government health guidelines.

Tottenham and West Ham have also opened their training grounds with strict conditions in place, while Brighton, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United are expected to return to their various bases this week.
