Torrential weather conditions, including rain and wind storms, have led to a number of Premier League games being called off.

Manchester City against Sunderland was one of the games to be called off, as well as Everton's game against Crystal Palace.

There has been a 'red warning' issued about wind and rain in the north west of England and there have even been warnings of lives being threatened by the conditions.

Arsenal v Manchester United, Fulham v Liverpool and Newcastle v Tottenham have all still gone ahead, but the rain has meant that a number of fans expecting to watch games in the north of the country will go home disappointed. 

In a bizarre turn of events it was City captain Vincent Kompany who broke the news about his team's postponement for their anticipated Sunderland encounter. The Belgian centre-half took to Twitter to announce: "Game's called off! Make sure you get yourselves home and be safe, weather is terrible! #mcfc"

The affected games will likely be rescheduled for the near future.
