Second-placed City's meeting with West Ham was scheduled for Sunday evening but was called off in the morning on safety grounds. This was done to avoid putting the safety of the public at risk.

Weather warnings were in place as heavy rain and gusts of up to 80mph hit the United Kingdom last weekend.

The match between the two sides will now be rescheduled for another day. The news has been confirmed by both clubs.

The oldest person to have ever lived was Jeanne Louise Calment, who lived to be 122 and died in 1997. Watanabe was officially given the title at a nursing home in Niigata where he now resides.

The Blues could have actually gotten better with a spirits- improving triumph over West Ham, yet will certainly now need to wait 12 days up until their following getaway versus Leicester at the King Power Stadium as a result of the Premier League's wintertime break.

However, the Premier League had previously expressed its desire not to see clubs arrange competitive or friendly fixtures during this period. Other WSL games between Manchester United and Chelsea, Bristol City and Reading, Birmingham versus Brighton and West Ham v Manchester City were also postponed, as were the Championship games at Charlton, Coventry, Crystal Palace, Durham and Lewes. & # 39; For Man City, and the top teams or even the bottom teams, if you're moving forward at that time, the winter break can nearly break it and When you return you could be doing the opposite. They already have a game against Arsenal, originally scheduled for 1 March, to rearrange due to their involvement in the Carabao Cup final.

There is also the slightly charged issue of a truncated winter break, something in the news this past month since Jürgen Klopp refused to curtail his or his Liverpool players' holiday after they were forced into an FA Cup fourth-round replay by League One Shrewsbury.
