It was reported by major outlets at the beginning of the month that if Leicester City draw their FA Cup 5th Round this weekend, Liverpool’s Premier League tie, scheduled for the 27th, will be put back so the Premier League champions can play the replay instead…
But actually, should Leicester draw with Millwall in south London tomorrow and a replay be needed, it’ll be that tie put back – with our match against Claudio Ranieri’s side taking part on the 25th – a Saturday.
Thats according to the Leicester Mercury.
At the moment, the Leicester v Liverpool clash is Sky’s Monday Night game, but it wouldn’t do us any harm if it was brought forward a little, considering we’ve got this weekend off and are still enjoying a mid-season break in La Manga.
Hopefully, the team will be fresh and ready to punish a Leicester side weary from their exploits in Europe and fighting an unexpected relegation battle.
We really hope they don’t go down, but they can start racking up points after our trip to the King Power, if possible!
