Premier League players love a holiday, so what did they get up to during the division’s mid-season winter break?
In an effort to reduce the effects of fatigue after a busy Christmas schedule and a gruelling return to cup competition, league games were staggered over two weekends in February. The league returns in full this weekend.
The break meant players like Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha could get away and spend some time in warmer climes.
The Palace maestro shared a picture of himself aboard a boat in shorts and a vest, simply captioned: “Boat day.”
Posting to Instagram, the Blues stopper wrote: “No words can describe this feeling. The best player on the court the show is guaranteed @kingjames.”
“When life throws you lemurs…” he wrote. Don’t go trying to make lemonade out of them now, Mason.
The pair reportedly attended a Michael Kors show, with Calvert-Lewin wearing a patterned blazer and baggy trousers combo, while Davies sported what can only be described as a dressing gown.
“Don’t worry, I know the Scottish sun is powerful at this time of year but I had factor 50 on,” he wrote next to a picture of himself on the course.
The initiative uses football to start conversations on mental health, and the pair enjoyed a game of table football in the process alongside Andros Townsend, Fran Kirby and Tony Adams.
For the Fox, that meant sitting down for a quiet moment on a luxurious sofa with a beautiful dog.
Luiz honked the noses of Nicolas Pepe, Eddie Nketiah, Rob Holding and Bukayo Saka, but it’s fair to say Joe Willock took it the worst, knocking Luiz’s phone from his grasp.
The ever-present Liverpool man was pictured attending his side’s FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury, which was staffed by the under-23s in the first team’s absence.
Never change, James.
