Tottenham’s Premier League match at Burnley on Sunday has been postponed due to adverse weather conditions.

The match was called off around 45 minutes before kick-off following a pitch inspection by officials, led by referee Peter Bankes.

Heavy snowfall in the area left the pitch unplayable, despite the efforts of ground staff to clear the surface ahead of kick-off.

Spurs’ squad had already arrived at the stadium, with Antonio Conte naming a side with eight changes from Thursday’s embarrassing defeat to NS Mura.

Turf Moor’s undersoil heating struggled to cope with the volume of snow overnight and on Sunday morning ahead of the 2pm kick-off, which will now be rearranged.

“I can’t see how it could go ahead the way the pitch is at the moment,” Burnley manager Sean Dyche said.“It fell that quick and heavy. It’s still quite strong now. [The pitch] can’t get rid of the snow that quick.”

He added: “As you can see the pitch re-covers every time they clear it. The referee explained the safety angle as well so it was important to make a decision early.

“It’s the lines being cleared as well – we would have to stop and clear them. It’s a joint decision with everyone concerned.

“We were ready for the game and I made it clear if it could be played we wanted it on – as did their manager.”
