What you’re feeling isn’t déjà vu. It’s soccer fever, as the FA Cup is underway. Leicester City and Tottenham are tired of playing each other and are ready to go to the next round of the tournament. Only one can advance — will it be the Foxes or the Spurs?
All’s fair in love and war, but this is the FA Cup, so expect the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club to bring the fight to the lovely King Power Stadium in Leicester, England on Jan. 20. The winner goes on to the tournament’s fourth round. The action kicks off at 2:45 P.M. EST, so be sure you’re ready when these two squads take to the pitch.
This will mark the third time in two weeks that Tottenham have faced off against Leicester City, according to the Evening Standard. The Foxes and the Spurs fought to a 2-2 draw in a FA Cup Third Round match on Jan. 10. A replay to determine a winner was scheduled for Jan. 20, but the teams met again in a regular Premier League match on Jan. 13. Leicester walked away with the victory, beating Tottenham, 1-0.
Tottenham’s manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is considering changing things up so the squad can get by the Foxes. “It is a good challenge as they play with a different team in the FA Cup,” Mauricio said, according to the BBC. “10 players different from the Premier League. We have a good chance to go to the next round and the FA Cup is Important to us.”
The Spurs are in for a surprise, as Leicester City may have the newly signed Demarai Gray play. Plus, Matty James could make his return after rupturing his knee ligaments at the end of the last season, according to BBC. These new additions might help the Foxes shake off the first shaky spell of their amazing season.
The Spurs have a win and a draw from their previous trips to Leicester City’s home turf, according to Goal.com, but they were knocked out of the FA Cup in the fourth round by – surprise, surprise – the Foxes. Will turnaround be fair play, leading the Spurs to FA Cup glory? Or will history repeat, with the Foxes sending Tottenham back home with a loss?
