Merseyside and Manchester derbies expected to go ahead despite adverse weather

Merseyside and Manchester derbies expected to go ahead despite adverse weather

Are you in the Christmas spirit yet?

Sunday's Premier League derby day could be called off after the Met Office today warned that heavy snow is forecast in both Manchester and Liverpool this weekend.

We now know the nation's favourite Manchester and Merseyside derbies.

We often associate consistent rain with the climate of northern England, but snow not as much.

The Met Office reacted by upgrading its warning from yellow to amber amid fears that falling snow between 4am and 6pm across Greater Manchester, coupled with sub-zero temperature, could spark safety concerns and lead to traffic chaos.

"Rail and air travel delays are likely, as well as stranding of vehicles and public transport cancellations".

In Thursday's final Manchester United's 2-1 win over Manchester City in 2011 - which featured Wayne Rooney's spectacular overhead kick - came out on top for that rivalry.

The official United website encourages fans to arrive as early as possible and that "supporters with long distance journeys are advised to plan routes before traveling", and urged fans to arrive early.

"Take extra care as there is the chance of ice being around as well".

With both the Merseyside and Manchester derbies both scheduled to take place on Sunday afternoon, fans of all four sides will be keeping a keen eye on the skies above as weather forecasters are predicting a deluge of snow.
