THE BAD WEATHER conditions in England have resulted in Manchester City and Everton’s Premier League home games being postponed tonight.

Manchester City were scheduled to face Sunderland at the Etihad Stadium while Everton were to entertain Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

Manchester City announced that the decision had been taken by Greater Manchester Police to call off their game.

It was explained that ‘the safety of those in around and travelling to the stadium complex cannot be guaranteed’ due to the adverse weather conditions’ at the Etihad Stadium.

The match at Goodison Park was postponed on police advice because of damage to buildings on Goodison Road had led to safety concerns.
