Premier League restart will depend on players with question marks over health insurance

Premier League players could reportedly have the final say on whether the competition returns this season.

There has been no Premier League football since mid-March with Covid-19 having caused havoc for football around the world.

Hope remains that the current season can be completed with Liverpool on the verge of winning their maiden title.
