This is pretty crazy, but a not unlikely possibility.
Liverpool play Spurs on Saturday February 11th, but there’s no scheduled Premier League fixtures the following weekend due to it being FA Cup 5th round weekend.
We’re then supposed to be travelling to Leicester on February 27th for our next clash, but if the Foxes draw their FA Cup match with Millwall on the 18th (a distinct possibility considering the fact they’ll play a second string), they’ll have to play the replay on the weekend of the 25th or 26th, meaning our fixture will have to be moved.
This is because they have a Champions League Last 16 tie against Sevilla in the diary for February 22nd, so our game with Claudio Ranieri’s men couldn’t be moved backwards.
So, if Leicester draw with Millwall on the 18th, Liverpool’s match on the 27th with them will be postponed until a later date, meaning we’ll have to wait until March 4th to take on Arsenal.
That will be 21 days without a fixture, exactly three weeks.
This will mean we’ll have played one match in February when we played ten in January.
That is, utterly ridiculous. Let’s hope Leicester or Millwall win as three weeks without a game after the barbaric run we’ve been on will feel like pre-season.
