Manchester City's game at home to Sunderland, as well as Everton's game against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park, have been postponed due to unsafe conditions.

Tonight's game between Manchester City and Sunderland has been postponed due to unsafe conditions. More storms have hit an already badly-flooded UK, reportedly bringing winds of up to 100mph. Not exactly the sort of weather to be kicking a ball around in.
