Premier League games set to go ahead despite snow disruption

Top-flight clubs have confirmed that their scheduled games are set to go ahead, including West Ham vs QPR and West Brom vs Aston Villa, notwithstanding wintry weather conditions
Despite overnight blizzards adding to Friday's snowfall, a series of Premier League clubs have confirmed that matches are scheduled to take place as originally planned, with the wintry conditions not delaying or postponing any top-flight matches.

The Premier League clubs were quick to react on Twitter, informing fans that games have not been affected by the snow.

"@WHUFC_official (West Ham) tweeted: GAME ON - The groundstaff have been working overtime and the pitch is looking great so West Ham United's game with QPR is ON!"

"@ChelseaFC tweeted: Chelsea v Arsenal to go ahead unless weather significantly worsens. Fans attending are asked to please leave extra time for journey."

"WBAFCofficial (West Brom): Barring severe deterioration in weather, today’s derby against @AVFCOfficial (Aston Villa) will go ahead (5.30pm)."

"@LaticsOfficial (Wigan): No problems at the DW Stadium. Game on!"

"NUFCOfficial (Newcastle United): #NUFC are confident that Saturday's Premier League home fixture against @ReadingFC will take place."

"@Swansofficial (Swansea) tweeted yesterday: The Liberty Stadium pitch is in perfect condition despite the snow and there is currently no doubts regarding the game going ahead."

In League One, third-placed Brentford are even rewarding fans who come to help clear the snow off their Griffin Park pitch, with helpers being given free tickets for Saturday's game against table-toppers Tranmere Rovers.

However, some Premier League clubs are yet to confirm the status of their fixtures, although it is expected that they will go ahead as planned. The games in question include Liverpool vs Norwich, Manchester City vs Fulham and Sunday's 16:00 kick-off between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at White Hart Lane.
