Yes, the FA decision that could affect Spurs and Chelsea and even for this season.

Because of COVID the FA replays were cancelled (even though temporarily) throughout the football season, but now will be reinstated.

The Football Association has decided to restore replays up to and including the fourth round of the competition.

The Carabao Cup semifinals is also to be contested over its traditional two-legged format, which will hopefully bring back normality to football.

The decision to reinstate replays could affect us and Chelsea the most this season as we also try to navigate our European commitments in both the Europa Conference League and Champions League, respectively.
