The English Premier League will officially resume on June 17th, with all 92 scheduled matches set to take place behind closed doors, with the concluding fixtures set for July 25th. Recently, an artificial intelligence platform, Zone7, conducted research that focused on the risk of injury faced by players. The research found that playing eight matches in the space of 30 days, increased injury risk by up to 25%. Based on the suggested schedule, finishing the 2019/20 campaign will require six weekends and three midweek rounds.

In episode 29 of The Carwash, former PSL stars Teko Modise & Sean Roberts debate the findings and how the completion of the FA Cup will further impact players. They also discuss what it could mean for PSL teams. Discussing the reality that PSL players will face, Modise didn’t mince his words at all, stating “We’re going to see injuries, that’s for sure, and it’s going to help the teams that have depth”. He continued by adding, “Teams like Bidvest Wits will be stronger, teams like Mamelodi Sundowns, like Orlando Pirates, will be stronger because they always have players on the sidelines who are just as good as the players on the pitch.”
