The weekend just gone saw the start of the Premier League’s first ever winter break, with half of the clubs given a fortnight off to rest and recover ahead of the season’s run-in.

But with Manchester City’s home game with West Ham postponed due to Storm Ciara, the break has inadvertently caused something of a fixture pile-up for the champions.

City, still challenging on four fronts despite almost certainly losing their title to Liverpool, will have to fit the West Ham game into what is already looking like a challenging schedule.

Will the Premier League’s winter break be back next season?
