Premier League matches postponed

LONDON (AP) Liverpool's home match against Fulham is one of three Premier League games to be called off because of poor weather conditions in northwest England.

After taking advice from the police, Liverpool said "the conditions around the stadium and further afield for people traveling to the match" were too hazardous for Saturday's game to go ahead.

Wigan's home match against Aston Villa was also postponed because of the "freak" weather conditions to have hit the northwest.

Wigan said 25 cm of snow fell overnight in the town, meaning "public transport isn't running, there are motorway closures and the general condition of the surrounding routes is treacherous."

Liverpool and Wigan said their pitches would have been playable.
