The Premier League will discuss their project restart plans next week with executives from their 20 clubs, a discussion expected to be pushed back after Prime Minister Boris Johnson did the same with his next planned and pivotal announcement on lockdown measures.
The Premier League hopes to resume the disrupted season on June 12, and West Ham were among the first clubs to reopen their training for their players before the proposed date.

West Ham wanted to make their practice area available to players who live in areas where it is not easy for them to train undisturbed as soon as possible.
Lanzini, one of the first to use the option, said, “I have an hour to do the work the coach left me, I’m alone with a distant partner. We are in the club with one or two people. We cannot use the facilities or the changing rooms, we must be changed.
‘[On Tuesday] we have to do some studies because they think the competition will return. We would train next week [in groups of] the whole group in five weeks. ‘
