Today’s Premier League games between Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa and Liverpool v Fulham have been called off after heavy snow overnight.

Wigan issued a statement describing the surrounding conditions as “treacherous” and atributing the postponement to “freak weather conditions in the town overnight”.

“The decision was made on the advice of Superintendent Stuart Ellison of Greater Manchester Police, on safety grounds,” read an official club statement.

“Despite the club’s best efforts using today’s game on by bringing in snow ploughs and gritters, the 10 inches of snow that fell overnight, and is still falling at the time of going to press, has made the surrounding area extremely hazardous for supporters travelling to the game.

“Public transport isn’t running, there are motorway closures and the general condition of the surrounding routes is treacherous.

“The DW Stadium playing surface, ironically, is fine, with the undersoil heating doing its job, and the stadium is also okay.
