"Our away match versus Bristol City, which was set to kick off at 2.00 pm today, has been postponed due to a heavy downpour of snow overnight resulting in an unplayable pitch," Chelsea said in a statement. Arsenal said a pitch inspection and "extreme weather warnings" prompted authorities to postpone their match.
