Tottenham Hotspur players react to the suspension of the clash against Burnley in the Premier League
According to Football.London, Some Tottenham Hotspur players have taken to Twitter to react to the suspension of the game against Burnley in the Premier League. The match had to be suspended due to harsh weather conditions and was postponed indefinitely to another day.
Heavy snowfall resulted in the Turf Moor pitch being covered with snow which made conditions to be unplayable. Both teams had named their starting lineups, but a decision was reached to suspend the match for the time being.
There is no information about the rescheduled date since the league will have to find a suitable time for both teams. Tottenham’s involvement in the UEFA Europa Conference League could complicate things should they qualify for the knockout stages.
Sergio Reguilon wrote on Twitter, “See you another day Burnley” with a picture of himself and a snow-covered stadium in the background. His fellow teammate, Lucas Moura, also made it pretty clear that it was in fact pretty chilly at Turf Moor.
Emerson Royal reacted to the news by tweeting snow emojis by quoting the club’s official Portuguese account.
It was the only game this weekend that got suspended and Antonio Conte would hope to get a favourable reschedule. The fixtures will get congested from here own out, and his team’s success in the Conference League could add to it.
As visible in the tweet below, Harry Kane offered a couple of American fans a chance to visit the Tottenham Hotspur stadium as his personal guests in the future. The duo made big efforts to catch the game against Burnley but were ultimately let down.

Spurs are in seventh with a game in hand and are four points behind West Ham United, who are in 4th. We have the opportunity to close the gap to the Champions League qualification spots, and the match in hand would play a part in it. We will face Brentford next in the league, and they will pose a challenge as they have looked good this season.
As for the rescheduled game, it would have been better for everyone had the game been played. But if the weather conditions pose any threat to the safety of the players, then it was perhaps the right call to postpone it. Hopefully, the fans who had to make the trying journey to Turf Moor are compensated in some form by the club.
