Will Leicester play a game of football again?

This one wasn't our fault!! 

We had enough players for the game. Burnley didn't...not sure what the breakdown is. 

For all the games postponed, we've only asked for 2 to go. The PL can take the shit for rearranging the Everton game so soon in Jan. 

As for the rearranged games, 4 games that need to be fit in now for us. Fixture schedule is already rammed. If we progress further in FA Cup it means more rearrangements in March and April. I think we may see 3 games in a week (weekend, Tuesday, Thursday) as the season progresses...

Although not sure a long break - 23 days by the time we play Spurs - is always best. Saw how rusty Liverpool were against us and I think we'll see similar when we play Spurs. Although the plus from Burnley postponing tomorrow's game is that players have a bit more time to recover or return. 

You guys roughing up Spurs wouldn't go amiss! Them missing Son is a good time to play them.

Spurs - Romero, Bergwijn, Son, Dier

Arsenal - Tomiyasu, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang, Partey, Elneny, Pepe, Odegaard, Xhaka.  Saka and Soares are up in the air.

Absolute farce if they call it off.

And white and nketiah. Any manager would want the game called of with that many players out

Both are available according to Matt Law, who now covers all three London clubs (Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal) You have 8 confirmed out with 2 up in the air (Saka & Soares) to which I'm sure at least one of them will be fit Sunday.  

This will leave you to 9 players out, which was the same amount of players we had out vs Wolves and were forced to play on.

We've got 12 players out. It's a legitimate reason 

I know other clubs have done the same, but unless at least half of those are because of Covid, it isn't a legitimate reason at all.

This has got so badly out of hand. Teams with one Covid case getting games called off through a rule that's there in case of Covid emergencies.

The whole Premier League has become a farce over the past six weeks, but again because the majority can't see past the partisan angle of getting into a pissing contest over which teams have "cheated" the most and how our own club's reasons are more legitimate than everyone else's, the FA and Premier League are getting off pretty much scot-free. They're the ones who have failed to provide a transparent framework for how these things are decided and have enabled clubs to find every loophole going. Now a precedent has been set where enough teams have taken the piss that it's pretty much fair game for everyone. Teams are literally getting 2-3 of their strongest eleven out injured and trying to get two weeks off.

What's even a bigger farce is that Arsenal are willingly letting players go out on loan this month whilst at the same time claiming they are short on numbers. 

Precisely. Let two out this week. No chance this should be called off. Even though it suits us as well

No it isn’t. You have one Covid case. Injuries and afcon should not count 

This, 1000%. If teams hit the magic number to get a game called off through covid, call it off. If teams are citing injuries and AFCON (they know that this could be the case when they sign players), they’re failing to fulfil a fixture and should be punished as a result.

You've had games called off and Conte has bitched about his squad for the past month, so zip it ;)

Games called off because we had a huge Covid outbreak and the training ground closed. You’ve got injuries and players away. Not a chance the PL should accept this request. And the hypocrisy of you to go along with it too, typical
