FA may seek compensation from Premier League for winter break

Jurgen Klopp's call for a winter break in England is met with criticism from ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Craig Burley.

The Football Association may seek compensation from the Premier League if FA Cup ties are moved to midweek to accommodate a winter break.

While the current Premier League television deal means a winter break cannot be introduced until 2019, there have been growing calls for the English top flight to follow in the footsteps of Spain and Germany and bring in a mid-season rest period.

EFL chief Shaun Harvey wants FA Cup ties to shift to midweek

Shaun Harvey says midweek FA Cup games would allow for a winter break in England.

English Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey believes moving the FA Cup fourth and fifth rounds to midweek would not only aid clubs financially but allow the implementation of a winter break.

Life below the Premier League is in the process of change after the 'Whole Game Solution' was announced in March, aimed at tackling some of the primary issues facing its clubs, along with the wider football world.

The EFL announced on Friday that the revamp would not involve Premier League B teams or...

Tottenham have had little to cheer at the new Wembley Stadium

Mauricio Pochettino urged Tottenham Hotspur to make Wembley Stadium feel "like home" ahead of Wednesday's Champions League match against AS Monaco at the national stadium -- but Spurs haven't fared well there in the past.

ESPN FC looks at the five previous occasions Spurs have played at Wembley since it reopened in 2007:

Tottenham 2-1 Chelsea (AET), League Cup final, 2008
