Storm Dennis could cause chaos in the Premier League this weekend with the Met Office issuing three warnings of wind and rain for Saturday.
Manchester City’s clash with West Ham was postponed last weekend due to Storm Ciara and now Storm Dennis is set to hit the UK.
There is a risk of blizzards over high ground in Scotland on Thursday with the bad weather set to move south as we head to the weekend.
And for this weekend, there are three warnings of wind and rain which cover the whole of England, Wales and southern Scotland.
The poor conditions could mean that this weekend’s Premier League fixtures are at risk with safety of spectators of paramount importance.
The weather has already called off one match this season with “extreme and escalating weather conditions” postponing City’s game with West Ham.
Leicester’s trip to Wolves on Friday evening should be unharmed however the four matches across Saturday and Sunday could be at risk.
Burnley make the trip to Southampton on Saturday lunchtime before Norwich host Premier League leaders Liverpool at tea-time.

The bad weather is expected to continue into Sunday with Tottenham’s trip to Aston Villa and Arsenal’s clash with Newcastle potentially in doubt.
Should any game be called off, it will cause chaos to Premier League managers with the FA Cup and European competitions still in full flow and fixture schedules already piling up.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: “Whilst it’s going to be very windy, they do look like they will be a touch down to what we saw with Storm Ciara.
“The unsettled weather won’t subside massively any time soon.”
