Tottenham Hotspur's home encounter against league leaders Manchester United will go ahead despite the wintry conditions.

This afternoon's Premier League encounter between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United will take place despite heavy snow.

The match had been thrown into doubt after a pitch inspection was called by referee Chris Foy for 2.50pm.

However, despite the worry of visibility being an issue at White Hart Lane, Foy has deemed the pitch to be playable.

Officials also took into account the conditions outside the ground for the fans attending the game, but the match has now been given the green light.

Kickoff will take place as scheduled at 4pm.
