    They are. It's just slightly delayed (both are playing on the 2nd Jan. with the delayed match on the 4th Jan).

    Can't see any major upsets although West Ham might give Spurs a surprise (rearranged to 4th Jan. but part of Week 21).

    Otherwise on form all the top teams should win though fans will hope that maybe WBA, Leicester or maybe even Palacem can grab a point. Stoke and Saints should be buried.

    I don't. However haven't they had issues with transport to Wembley ? Isn't there a rail strike planned ?

    Happy with Karius starting, although sadly it's probably just more rotation rather than him being given a berth.

    It was moved on police advice, they advised that as it was NYE they would be overstretched and if the game was to go ahead, the attendance would be restricted to 43k.

    Given the cost of hiring the stadium, I’m guessing Spurs turned this option down for commercial reasons.

    Horrible from Matip, Can and Karius.

    Stoke 1 nil down within 2 mins. With Adam and Fletcher in a midfield 2 this could get worse much worse.

    The way Leicester play, Vardy should be expected to have a field day against Liverpool.

    We’ve been completely slated on Socer Saturday. Now Jeff Stelling giving it “everything is blooming at Liverpool” despite them being 5 points behind us and us and us having won more in 2017 than they have in the past 11 years combined.

    Truly bizarre.

    Missed the goal, but this Klopp again being clever making tweaks and changes at home days after a big win.

    Liverpool's front three dragging defenders out of their positions for fun, very dynamic.

    No idea why we think Milner and Can are good enough defensively

    Stoke made 6 changes to the side? Hughes not even trying to get something?

    Leicester look dangerous here. Liverpool don't like being pressed, midfield and defence are so shit. Could be a lot of goals in this.

    I think they are supposed to nullify Pedro and Willian, which is like expecting a paper bag to hold concrete.

    Meh, Leicester are bottling cnuts this season except against us. Expect Liverpool to win this 4-1 or 4-2.

    Really poor result for us to have drawn against them earlier this season. They're an absolute shower.
