Tottenham, United clash goes ahead

Tottenham, United clash goes ahead

Published Jan. 20, 2013 12:00 a.m. ET

Tottenham's Premier League match against Manchester United will go ahead this afternoon after a pitch inspection satisfied requirements.

The 4pm kick-off between the two sides was put in danger thanks to heavy snowfall in the capital.

Ground staff have been working hard to keep the pitch at White Hart Lane clear, but should the bad weather continue, fans may find it hard to get to the north London venue - and the game could be called off.

A statement on Tottenham's website, published at 12.23pm, read: "Today's match against Manchester United remains on at this point in time.


"However the situation is being monitored and much will depend on whether or not there is any substantial snow before kick off at 4pm.

"We'll keep fans informed of any further updates via our usual channels."
