ANOTHER DIVINE piece of fixture plotting by the Premier League computer pits these two sides together for a match that will probably be of as much interest to Leeds fans as it will to supporters of either Leicester or Tottenham.

For the benefit of those who somehow may not have heard, the story so far in The George and Martin Show goes something like this. Having left Leeds for Tottenham, George Graham brings his new side to Filbert Street to face Martin O'Neill's Leicester, incidentally, the man who wants Graham's old job at Leeds but can't have it, because his employers would prefer him, unlike Graham, to hang around and see out his contract. Confused? Don't worry - so is everyone else.

Having had a chance to settle down at Spurs, Graham is evidently determined to avoid a "quick fix", instead preferring to carry out what he describes as "a long-term revolution that will transform the club into a major Premiership force for years to come". The first step will be to dig up his Arsenal patio.

O'Neill continues to chunter on about the fact he has not been given permission to leave Leicester. "The situation hasn't changed. I want to talk to Leeds United, but the chairman is adamant he wants me to stay at Leicester," he said. "I think everyone wants the situation sorted out. I would like to see it resolved one way or the other in the next 72 hours."

SQUADS: To be announced.
