While many parts of the UK were basking in unseasonably sunny weather on Tuesday, Manchester was living up to its rainy image.

The officials inspected the watery ground earlier in the evening, with their decision to postpone the game inevitable.

Mnnchester City then posted this lovely little video showing the extent of the rain…

Fans won’t have to wait long for the rescheduled game, however, which is set for Wednesday evening. Weather permitting, that is!
