Chelsea have officially confirmed that today's match against Manchester United will take place as scheduled, with kickoff at 16:00 GMT / 11:00 ET. Last year's fixture at Stamford Bridge was postponed early due to similar conditions, with much outcry when it turned out that the snow really wasn't that bad. So this season, despite the snow covering the pitch in London, the teams will take to the field. Chelsea FC: where men will be men, and boys will wear gloves and short sleeves.
Meanwhile up north, nothing short of a blizzard will stop Newcastle from hosting Aston Villa. The Magpies are looking to debut Papiss Cisse, and crossing their fingers in hopes of a result similar to the last time the Villans came to town -- a 6-0 thumping of the visitors.
So grab your blankets and your tea, and get ready for some exciting Premier League action. Or at least, the chance to see the orange ball.
