Yep. Put out a good side too and smashed Watford. It came on awfully quick :rolleyes:

We only have 8 senior outfield players available and they all started against Watford. Only 4 players were at the darts and 3 of those played yesterday, the other is injured.

Due to scheduling issues there was no option to postpone FA Cup games either.

The PL are in a difficult position to be honest. The rules around fixtures being postponed aren't specific to covid, it's simply a case of whether a side has at least x amount of players available. If Leicester don't, regardless of why, it's difficult for the PL to reject their request to postpone the game.

I wonder if any action is going to get taken against Liverpool faking tests.

Lol, didnt read the article properly then.

All you to read is this part to see why we couldn't play

According to sources, Liverpool underwent at least two rounds of testing prior to the postponement.
The first round, involving the use of lateral flow device (LFD) tests, highlighted a number of positive cases.

The second round, involving the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests carried out by an independent laboratory, also highlighted a number of positive cases.

That is all you need to read, we had two rounds of testing which showed positive tests, third round was after the postponement which showed false positives so nothing we could do.

Guess we paid the independent laboratory to make up the results.
