    As long as none are out due to Covid the game will be on, Rodgers is probably on the phone to Klopp asking whether it's lemon juice or orange juice that works best on LFTs...

    .........Amartey Mendy Ndidi

    The day they made it injured and covid as reasonable excuses to postpone they’ve just made a rod for their own back. The AFCON was a competitive hindrance decision clubs have made and could plan for and injuries have never been an acceptable reason to postpone a game. Maybe it should have been based solely on the number of covid cases, say >5, although that still doesn’t stop pretend (false positives) cases

    Is this likely to go ahead or are the PL on their pay roll as well as Arsenal’s?

    I think it will go ahead. Leicester have had these problems for a while and have been playing the games.

    Besides, despite the long list of absentees they still have Tielemans, Maddison, Perez, Lookman, Daka and Barnes available as a front 6. More than enough pace and guile to cause us alot of problems I would say.

    It really underlines the strength of their squad. The recruitment in the last few years has been excellent...sigh...

    That’s because they’re only missing 2 attackers though isn’t it? What will their defense look like?

    And with the manager a good few spurs fans wanted, and yet..........
    8 points behind us in what has been a poor season for us.

    Yeah it’s so stupid.

    AFCON, suspensions and loans should also count as available, because technically the players are fit.

    otherwise why not loan our whole team for some cash for a few weeks and just postpone every match :)

    Like brick, hopefully. Could be an open high scoring game like the one up there last season.

    All true, they have had a real mixed bag of results so far. I do think they have built a good squad though.

    Really hope Dier or Romero can make this game. If not both.

    One starting another on the bench perhaps. Really want to see us back with our strongest back three over some time, see what they can do.

    Based on Conte’s comments on the OS it sounds like dier, romero and son will return after the international break.

    Sadly I think this means defeat at chelsea is inevitable and will likely be coupled with a pathetic performance.

    We have to now somehow win at leicester but I cannot see it with all those key players we have missing. They still have a menacing attack (unless daka misses out to lead the line) but their issues at the back give us a small chance imo.

    I’ll go for 1-1 and then a 3-0 loss at chelsea. These results would put us seriously on the back foot but that is what happens when you have a bang average squad and a deeply selfish owner.

    Hmmmm without Dier and Romero, we will probably see Tanganga start, whose confidence has look shot in recent weeks. But Conte clearly doesn't fancy Rodon.

    I would choose:

    Lloris
    Sanchez Rodon Davies
    Emerson Skipp Dele Winks Sess
    Moura Kane

    What I think it will be:

    Lloris
    Tanganga Sanchez Davies
    Emerson Skipp Hojbjerg Sess
    Lo Celso Moura
    Kane

    In the absence of Son, there is a chance for Lo Celso, Gil, Bergwijn or Dele you would think.

    They're likely to line up:


    Schmeichel
    Albrighton Vestergaard Soyuncu Thomas
    Dewsbury Hall Tielemans
    Lookman Maddison Barnes
    Daka

    Considering they have loads of absentees, that is a very decent team. Will be tough.

    Tanganga has earned himself a spot on the bench with his last bunch of performances imo - unless there's something going on with Rodon that we're not privy to he should be getting a chance in front of him atm (assuming Dier/Romero are out)
