Recently, UEFA held a draw ceremony to divide the matches in the 1/8 round of the Champions League. The encounters will last from February 14 to March 15 local time.
However, according to sources from journalist Dale Johnson of ESPN, Such arrangement of the schedule will greatly affect the compensatory matches in the Premier League.
Specifically, the English teams that reached the knockout round of the Champions League all have matches that have been postponed in the domestic league. This forced the Premier League organizers to organize compensation rounds to balance the number of matches between the 20 participating teams.
It is known that Chelsea still has a meeting with Liverpool.
The same is the case for Man City, as they have postponed the Tottenham Hotspur clash. But since all four of these teams play in the Champions League (mostly taking place in the middle of the week) and the EPL organizers need to ensure the next matches take place on schedule, the arrangement of matches making up for this quartet is extremely difficult.
With the current situation, it is likely that the Premier League will have to wait for the results of the 1/8 Champions League round to re-arrange a reasonable schedule. At that time there were only 4 matches left, so they could come up with a more suitable plan.
