Heavy snow and freezing temperatures have wreaked havoc with English football with seven Premier League fixtures postponed.

All Whites captain Ryan Nelsen and his Blackburn Rovers were one of only two games to go ahead, and Nelsen scored in the 1-1 draw with the visiting bottom side West Ham United.

Sunderland beat Bolton Wanderers 1-0 at home in the day's other completed fixture.

Champions Chelsea will have to wait to see if they can claw back some points from the visiting league leaders Manchester United after Monday's blockbuster was called off thanks to the continuing inclement weather, with West Brom vs Wolves and Blackpool vs Spurs joining four games on Sunday to also be axed.

Heavy overnight snow accounted for Wigan's home match against Aston Villa and Liverpool's late game against Fulham before Birmingham's tie with Newcastle at St Andrews was called off, then Arsenal's game with Stoke at the Emirates was also postponed as a blizzard swept across London.
