"Leicester informed the Premier League they would be unable to fulfil Tuesday's fixture at Everton due to a combination of Covid cases, injuries and players being at AFCON; it is the second time the game has been postponed because of Leicester being unable to field a team"

I'm sure Glenn Hoddle, Danny Mills etc will be all over the airwaves tomorrow with indignation!

Given that all but one of Liverpoolís squad for last weds was miraculously false negative, itís probably for the best if scouse and their fans keep shush on this, rather than pretend thereís some media conspiracy against them.

Looks like Klopp used the cup week to engineer a mid-season break for his players. Itís underhand. Itís cheating. But I still sort think, fair play.

FFS. ::) ;D
you think theres nothing dodgy about this? The odds of a false positive are over a 1000/1, what are the odds on having so many false positives from a small sample. Let's be honest if this was man city Liverpool fans would be all over this

Ok, let's say it WAS a conspiracy.

To what end? Liverpool now have an away cup semi against an up and coming Arsenal stuck between two very important premier league games, instead of between a premier league game and a cup tie against a minnow.

Also gave up playing the home leg second.

Makes a lot of sense, doesn't it?

They got a break between a hectic Christmas period, and the CL knockout stages. Whatís not to like about that?

CL knockout is not for another month. What difference is three days off training/playing going to make then?

And it still leaves them with a very tough ten days starting this Thursday with the second leg home advantage lost.

But, no one can prove anything either way, so if it makes you happy to go the conspiracy angle, knock yourself out.

Itís not 3 days off! For the vast majority of the Liverpool first team squad, itís an 11 day break between matches.

Klopp is no daftie. If Liverpool are going to go hard on 4 fronts for the rest of the season, this was the only opportunity for some R&R for a squad that doesnít have the strength in depth of City and Chelsea.

Itís a form of cheating. But as stated previously, I kind of respect it. Finding and exploiting loopholes is commended in almost every other walk of life.

They shut down the training centre for three days in coordination with the public health authority. I would expect there could be all kinds of serious repercussions if it turns out that anything underhanded took place, beginning with forfeiting the LC semi and possible suspensions. 

And if Klopp was so determined to give all those players a rest, he could have just used the FA Cup match like he has every other year. As it turned out, because of the cancellation of the Arsenal game, he had to use it to give a few players coming back from suspension, covid and injury a run out.

Or Everton, hell even Man Utd too, come to think of it Chelsea as they're up there as well.

P.S. this is the first I've read of this so I'm not on the anti-Liverpool bandwagon myself.
But there HAS been plenty of games postponed involving those teams and others and no one has said a word about !!
For some reason though all the crazies get outraged when itís Liverpool who have to postpone a game

Very poor so far, havenít troubled their goalkeeper at all since the sending off.
Could do with getting at least one goal before the 2nd leg.

Not good at all. Sending off if anything didnít help Liverpool at all, the bus was parked afterwards and they couldnít get through it.
Only half time though as they say.

Disappointing from Trent AA tonight he didn't look interested at times. It is not over yet and Arsenal will have to come out and playin the second leg.
