Premier League restart: The 11 big names set to make their comebacks this week

Harry Kane is fit and available for Tottenham once again

After over three months with no competitive action, the Premier League is making its triumphant return this week.

With nine rounds of fixtures still to be played, there is a lot that needs to be settled in the coming weeks.

Liverpool will, of course, win the title but the battle to qualify for the Champions League is as intense as ever.

Aside from Manchester City and Liverpool, there is no other team you can confidently say will qualify for Europe’s most prestigious competition next season.

The battle between Chelsea, Manchester United, Leicester, Wolves, Arsenal and Tottenham is likely to be pretty darn epic.

And to make it even more spectacular, there will be 11 huge names making their return from injuries and we’ve provided those players below. It’s going to be a feast of football!

Harry Kane (Tottenham)

What a boost for Jose Mourinho and Spurs. The club’s talisman is ready to return to competitive action after picking up a serious hamstring injury back at the start of 2020.

Paul Pogba (Manchester United)

The Frenchman is yet to play a minute of competitive action for United this season. But now he’s ready to return alongside Bruno Fernandes and inject Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side with more creativity and goals.

Leroy Sane (Manchester City)

Sane picked up a serious knee injury in the Community Shield against Liverpool and hasn’t made a Premier League appearance this season. However, he’s now back in full training and ready to make Pep Guardiola’s squad look even more terrifying.

Alisson Becker (Liverpool)

The Reds were without their main man between the posts before the season came to a halt. The Brazilian’s return just makes playing Liverpool an even more daunting prospect.

Heung-min Son (Tottenham)

Mourinho thought he’d lost Son for the rest of the 2019/20 season. Now, the Korean is fit and ready after suffering an arm injury against Burnley earlier in the year.

Marcus Rashford (Manchester United)

Rashford, Martial, Fernandes and Pogba? That’s some lineup. United are going to be a serious problem in the coming weeks.

Christian Pulisic (Chelsea)

The American hasn’t played a competitive fixture since New Year’s Day, but he’s fit once again to give Frank Lampard’s side a much-needed boost.

Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City)

After suffering a serious knee injury against Brighton earlier in the season, Laporte – arguably City’s most important player – is back and ready to nullify strikers once again.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea)

Chelsea’s midfield is about to get a whole lot better. Loftus-Cheek hasn’t played a competitive game this season since rupturing his Achilles a year ago.

Kieran Tierney (Arsenal)

Injuries have plagued Tierney’s Arsenal career thus far. Now, after a long rest, the Scotsman will be itching to show why the Gunners faithful are so excited about his signing.

Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham)

Kane, Son and Bergwijn? Mourinho’s Spurs have certainly benefitted from the temporary suspension of the Premier League.

Eleven players that could prove to be difference makers in the race for Champions League football.

The next six weeks of Premier League action has the potential to be something very special!
