The Premier League banned inctricate pitch designs so as it's an FA Cup game the Leicester groundsman has done a work of art at the King Power

Leicester are hosting Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter final and this pitch design could be a dastardly plan to bamboozle their opposition who are used to the boring old grass at Stamford Bridge.

The Foxes will be targeting a semi-final berth against a Chelsea sides full of unrest and coming off the back of a 3-0 defeat to Barcelona.

Not a great leap from your front man

Chelsea on the other hand know that the cup represents their only realistic chance of silverware and Conte handed Alvaro Morata a rare start up front suggesting he might play more directly.

That’s if Morata isn’t confused by the rare pitch markings.

It’s fair to say social media was very split over the gardening at the KP…
