The Premier League world continues to move toward the return of soccer, while its social media eyes are trained in several directions.
In Monday’s edition of the PL social media wrap, we visit players from several clubs including both of Manchester’s top-flight sides in addition to a defender in the Northeast and a mournful note from Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger.

It’s Independence Day in Argentina, and several players were Tweeting love back home from their homes in the Premier League.
Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendia, Man City’s Nicolas Otamendi, and West Ham’s Pablo Zabaleta shared their love for home.
Newcastle’s Federico Fernandez celebrated with Napoli’s clever photo of a makeshift Argentine XI, as the Serie A club has had a lot of strong players from the South American nation.
Didn’t see himself lining up with Diego Maradona any time soon, we imagine.

Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy came out of his shell to share some thoughts on social distancing.
The outgoing French left back is no stranger to quips, and used his Twitter to post a reminder to stay vigilant in keeping distance from others.
Mendy posed with Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Nicolas Otamendi, and Eric Garcia at City’s training ground Monday.
You may note that he also tagged Bernardo Silva. That’s banter, and see the second Tweet for detail.

On the other side of Manchester, forward Marcus Rashford shared an honor bestowed upon him for his vigilant work raising money this coronavirus pandemic.
Rashford has been working with a group called Fair Share UK to provide free meals for underprivileged people during the pandemic.
Last month, he doubled his personal donation and shared a story that he was once one of the children who’d need such contributions to get by.
Rashford was given a special recognition award by the High Sheriff of Greater Manchester and said, “To be recognized by my city is a special feeling.”
2.8million children a week are receiving meals they otherwise wouldn’t have during this lockdown because of YOUR help. I couldn’t have done any of this without the help of you all and @fareshare (2)

Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger is mourning the loss of a friend, as former Roma academy player Joseph Bouasse died of a heart attack at the age of 21.
Rudiger was with Roma from 2015-17 apart from a loan to Stuttgart in Germany, and Bouasse was a center mid in their academy.
The Chelsea centerback shared a photo of Bouasse on Monday. It’s always so stunning when a someone so young, let alone an elite athlete, succumbs to heart problems. Our hearts are Bouasse and the Roma family tonight.
Horrible news – I’m so sad about it 😓 Rest in peace, my brother ❤️🙏🏾 A young talent gone too soon from us. Condolences to the entire family! #JosephBouassePerfection 🇨🇲 #RIP pic.twitter.com/Ul8bZR4fSU
