The Premier League has said that it is confident that there will be no serious long-term disruption to fixtures after a weekend of games cancelled due to the weather.

A spokesman said: "Our football department will already have contingency dates in mind and will work closely with the affected clubs to get new dates agreed as quickly as possible."

Eight matches have been postponed so far, seven of which ought to have been played last weekend.

Two of Manchester United's games have been delayed, and if they progress in the European and FA Cups it will make rescheduling more difficult.
