Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge were among the Premier League grounds to welcome back fans.

The Premier League welcomed back supporters on Tuesday for the first time since the latest easing of coronavirus restrictions in England.

Grounds were still subject to capacity limits but it still represented a notable step in the return towards normality.

Here, the PA news agency looks at some images from the four games to take place, as well as a couple of Sky Bet League play-off semi-finals.
