Chelsea remain in the dark over when their Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie against Leicester City will be played.
The Blues were scheduled to take on The Foxes at The King Power Stadium tomorrow in a lunchtime kick-off but the game has been postponed following the suspension of all English football due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis.
The suspension of the footballing calendar was initially set to be reviewed in the lead up to 3 April, however, The Football Association announced yesterday that there will be no football played until May.
In the latest statement made by The Football Association, reference was made to the English Premier League and English Football League but there was no mention of the Emirates FA Cup.
UEFA are keen for all European club football to be completed by the end of June, however, it will be fascinating to see whether this aim can be achieved with the world in crisis.
Chelsea have nine English Premier League games to fit into what could be an eight-week period while the club remain in the UEFA Champions League, although they are unlikely to advance beyond the last-16 stage. The Blues will also need to play at least three more games in the Emirates FA Cup if they are to lift the trophy two years on from their last success but the future of this season’s competition is very much still in the air.
