Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Burnley this afternoon has now officially been postponed due to heavy snowfall at Turf Moor.
The ground staff worked tirelessly in an attempt to clear the blanket of snow, but to no avail, as the match was called off just 50 minutes before it was due to start.
In fact, both Tottenham and Burnley even announced their starting XI before telling fans the match would no longer go ahead.
Some Spurs fans would have made a four-hour trip to be at Turf Moor, now faced with another four-hour journey home without having seen any football.
There is currently no news on when the rescheduled fixture will be played, but it appears we will not be seeing Tottenham Hotspur in action this weekend, unfortunately.
Some Spurs fans took to Twitter to voice their frustration at the decision to call the match off, especially when some had travelled so far to support the Lilywhites.
I'm not even surprised either that's such a spurs thing to do

They should be heavily fined! Imagine not covering the pitch when it starts snowing and letting our team and fans go all that way to call it off 50 mins before kick off. Joke!!!!

Absolute joke, their suspended players should also be ineligible for whenever the game is rescheduled for. That’s also probably the reason they put next to no effort in ensuring the game went ahead. Should be punished.

Great news that for anyone who travelled, this is supposed to be the Premier League.

Burnley should not be in the Premier League with a very poorly maintained pitch & Stadium! Turn on your bloody under soil heating and sort the pitch out! Gutted its postponed!

Yep while randomly inexplicable panicking giving the ball away and kicking it out of play

How can a Premier League club not have under-soil heating?? Absolute joke.

Great news for us. Should be a while before the game is rearranged and in that time the players will have had more time under conte and hopefully we've made a few changes to the squad by then!
