Burnley v Tottenham called off because of snow from Storm Arwen

Snow at Turf Moor
Burnley began the day 18th in the Premier League with Tottenham in seventh

Burnley's Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur at Turf Moor was postponed 50 minutes before kick-off because of heavy snow.

The game was due to start at 14:00 GMT but despite attempts to make the pitch playable it was called off at 13:10.

Referee Peter Bankes said: "They worked as hard as they could but within 10 minutes the pitch was covered again."

Burnley manager Sean Dyche added: "It fell that quickly and heavily - it's still quite strong now."

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said: "There is a bit of disappointment because we were ready to play but at the same time I think the Premier League has made the right decision to save the situation for the players and fans.

"In these conditions it is not football. I want to have fun. In this situation it is impossible and there is a serious risk for the players."
