This new schedule means for the first time ever the Premier League will be playing through the summer months and that means fans across the USA will be treated to a summer of soccer like they’ve never seen before.

USMNT and Chelsea star Christian Pulisic, 21, is eager to get going again after he missed January and February through injury.

“But I’m feeling good now, I’ve been training a lot and I’m just really excited to get back out on the field. It feels like it’s been a long time without football for everyone at the moment, but certainly for me because I had the injury on top of everything that’s going on now,” Pulisic said, born and raised in Hershey, Pennsylvania, said.

Man United and England star Marcus Rashford is certainly looking forward to the restart as he has recovered from a nasty back injury earlier in 2020 and is now fully fit for the return.

“I have been training now for two or three weeks,” Rashford told Sony Sports India. “It is important to get the fitness levels back up. You want to feel good again going into the game. I am definitely at that stage. I am just excited for the games to start again. It is a little disappointing that there will be no fans but they can watch it on TV and I hope they start enjoying the sport again. Football is a game that puts smiles on people’s faces. That’s what makes the game so great.”
