It is anticipated that the weather will improve in time for the 12.30 p.m. kickoff as Liverpool gets ready to welcome Everton at Anfield on Saturday. All weekend games at the grassroots level will now be postponed, according to Liverpool City Council.
Writing on social media, Liverpool City Council said: “Due to the adverse weather conditions, and with the heavy rain set to continue, we have made the decision to call off all fixtures on LCC operated football pitches this weekend (21st & 22nd Oct). Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.”
Returning to the Premier League, some games on Saturday will be played in places where there are presently weather advisories in effect. In addition to Manchester City hosting Bighton, Crystal Palace visiting Newcastle, and Nottingham Forest playing Luton Town are all on the agenda.
The games outside of England’s top division, however, are expected to have the greatest chance of having flooded fields. In the Women’s Super League, Scottish football, and EFL, there is a full slate of games planned.
The Met Office has what to say?
“Heavy and persistent rain will fall onto already saturated ground bringing a risk of flooding. It is important to stay up to date with warnings from your local flood warning agency as well as the local authorities. As well as heavy rain, Storm Babet will bring some very strong winds and large waves near some eastern coasts too.”
