Manchester City v West Ham postponed due to poor weather

The Premier League clash at the Etihad was initially postponed on Sunday after Storm Ciara struck - with the announcement coming just five hours before the 4:30pm kick-off. It's a little bit deflating, to be truthful with you. 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.

Wright-Phillips did, nonetheless, take place to yield that the break might have come with the "perfect time" for Raheem Sterling, that is dealing with to return to complete physical fitness after enduring a hamstring injury.

"For me, it was always hard if (a game was postponed)". "Perhaps an advantage for Sterling with the hamstring problem, he could have arrived at the ideal time for him to recover and get back in shape and ready for later".

The former Aston Villa and Tottenham star, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, says that the 21-year-old is a promising young player but that he has not been hugely influential at the London Stadium. "I think they're doing well", he stated".
