West Ham and Man City won't consider staging Prem fixture during break

West Ham and Manchester City will not consider playing their postponed Premier League match this weekend.

The game was called off on Sunday as Storm Ciara wreaked havoc.

The match at the Etihad Stadium was cancelled on safety grounds after heavy rain and severe gales caused disruption across the country.

The postponement leaves the Premier League with a headache over when to rearrange the fixture because Pep Guardiola's side are still in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Champions League.

There is a window to play the game this weekend because both clubs are on their designated winter breaks.

But West Ham and City are not prepared to play the game during their scheduled two-week break, says the London Evening Standard.
