MU match in danger

Manchester United's bid to maintain their position on the top of the Premier League with victory at Blackpool on Saturday is in danger of being scuppered by the freezing temperatures in England.
United are two points clear of second placed Chelsea but they may lose first place if the game is postponed as a result of the snow that has ravaged most of the country.
Blackpool chiefs revealed on Friday that the match could become the first top-flight fixture to be postponed this weekend due to a frozen pitch at Bloomfield Road despite the club's use of protective covers and hot-air blowers.
A statement on the club's website said: "Following the heavy overnight frost, where temperatures dipped below minus eight, concerns surrounding areas of the Bloomfield Road surface have increased.
"The severe frost on Thursday night has meant that large areas of the playing surface have become frozen.
"The Seasiders groundstaff have worked throughout the night with large hot-air blowers in a bid to thaw out the problematic areas of the playing surface, however last night's frost has meant that the problematic areas have increased."
