A new group of Premier League footballers and some special guests will be putting their EA SPORTS FIFA 20 skills to the test in the latest ePremier League Invitational tournament.

Premier League clubs will be represented by a host of familiar faces who are going head-to-head in a knockout competition on PlayStation 4.

Among the players taking part next week are Phil Foden, of Manchester City, Billy Gilmour (Chelsea), Ryan Sessegnon (Tottenham Hotspur), Callum Wilson (AFC Bournemouth) and John Egan (Sheffield United).

The draw will be revealed on Monday 4 May at 09:00 BST with each day's matches streamed live from 15:00 BST on Tuesday, ahead of the semi-final and final from 17:00 BST on Saturday 9 May. 

Jota, who scored 19 goals in four matches on his way to winning the first ePL Invitational, said: "It is a good tournament for everyone, with good causes involved and also the fans getting involved.

"At this time, we need to find ways to help communities and also try to keep the fans entertained, giving them something to watch while they are at home.

"It was good for us players to get some competition as well – I think I was more nervous playing FIFA than when I play real football! Of course, being the champion made it even better."

Alexander-Arnold said: "It's good that these kinds of events are going on so people can tune in and feel like a part of something together, and feel like a part of their team. The main thing is that people are staying safe and staying at home."

Fans can watch all the action on Premier League digital channels as well as on the Sky Sports YouTube and Twitch channels, BBC Sport website and iPlayer.

Finals Day will also be shown live in the UK on Sky Sports' Premier League and Main Event channels, with the tournament again being televised around the world by the Premier Leagues international broadcast partners.

The tournament will urge everyone to follow official advice by staying at home and saving lives.

We would also ask anyone inspired to play FIFA 20 to take regular breaks from gaming, every 45 minutes.
