The Blues could have actually gotten better with a spirits- improving triumph over West Ham, yet will certainly now need to wait 12 days up until their following getaway versus Leicester at the King Power Stadium as a result of the Premier League's wintertime break.
However, the Premier League had previously expressed its desire not to see clubs arrange competitive or friendly fixtures during this period. Other WSL games between Manchester United and Chelsea, Bristol City and Reading, Birmingham versus Brighton and West Ham v Manchester City were also postponed, as were the Championship games at Charlton, Coventry, Crystal Palace, Durham and Lewes. & # 39; For Man City, and the top teams or even the bottom teams, if you're moving forward at that time, the winter break can nearly break it and When you return you could be doing the opposite. They already have a game against Arsenal, originally scheduled for 1 March, to rearrange due to their involvement in the Carabao Cup final.
There is also the slightly charged issue of a truncated winter break, something in the news this past month since Jürgen Klopp refused to curtail his or his Liverpool players' holiday after they were forced into an FA Cup fourth-round replay by League One Shrewsbury.
