PREMIER LEAGUE clubs are now reportedly spying on their rivals to ensure training ground rules are not being broken.

Top-flight teams in England are back in contact training as they prepare for the league to return on June 17.

But there are growing concerns that some squads are bending the rules to gain an advantage over their rivals.

According to the Mail, officials at certain clubs have been examining other teams' training pictures VERY closely.

Managers have ordered their staff to carry out regular checks on rivals' Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages.

It is reported that several calls have already been made to the league to check if certain behaviour is allowed.

Premier League teams agreed to start non-contact training in small groups last month.

But as Project Restart nears, contact training is now permitted and some teams have even played friendlies at empty stadiums.

There are some restrictions still in place at the training ground which include a limit to the number of staff around the pitch and unnecessary groups.

And that's what eagle-eyed staff from teams across the country are on the look out for.

The Premier League are also using compliance officers to ensure clubs are abiding by the rules during training.
