Premier League fixtures are in jeopardy this weekend as Storm Dennis prepares to put games across the competition at risk.
Storm Ciara’s impact on the top flight was seen when Manchester City vs West Ham was called off after the conditions at the Etihad Stadium had been deemed unsafe.
While Friday’s fixture between Wolves and Leicester is not expected to be in doubt, Southampton vs Burnley and Norwich City vs Liverpool on Saturday will be impacted by the weather.
Southampton is expecting heavy rain and gales and the same can be said for the area in and around Norwich, with the Met Office having issued a warning.

“Storm Dennis will bring widespread winds and very wet conditions this weekend,” said Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon.
“Storm Dennis is following a similar pattern to Storm Ciara with low pressure coming in from the northwest, but we do not expect it to be as severe.
“However we will see inland gusts of 57mph quite widely and further very heavy rain on saturated ground there could be issues with flooding.
“Like Ciara, this storm is being pulled in by the jet stream which is amplifying and passing over Britain at around 250mph.”
Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and Monday are not anticipated to be heavily impacted by the weather.
