Tottenham’s game with AC Milan is NOT expected to be impacted by heavy snow and freezing temperatures across England on Wednesday… as TFL foresee NO problems with the transport network ahead of the Champions League clash

  • Tottenham take on AC Milan at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday
  • The sides face off in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash  
  • Heavy blizzards and freezing temperatures hit England earlier this morning

Despite England being hit by snow on Wednesday morning, there is expected to be no impact on Tottenham’s Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Antonio Conte’s side take on the seven-time winners of the competition in the second leg of their last-16 tie with the Italians holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg.

An early goal from former Manchester City youngster Brahim Diaz was enough to settle the match at the San Siro last month.

Earlier today, snow showers swept across Britain as commuters faced treacherous road conditions and rail chaos – while forecasters have also warned of possible power cuts.

However, a Spurs spokesperson told Sportsmail that they don’t expect the inclement weather conditions to have any impact on tonight’s game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The ground opened in 2019 and is one of the most modern stadiums in the country, with a high-tech undersoil heating system easing any worries of problems with the pitch.

Transport for London also confirmed to Sportsmail they expect everything to be OK in regards to travel to the ground.

After the coldest night of the year so far in Britain, some rail services were suspended on Wednesday morning, while there were also delays on the District and Jubilee Line on the London tube network.

However, they expected no problems with the transport system in London this evening and anticipated the Victoria Line towards Seven Sisters to be running without any trouble, although they urged those travelling to take care.

The game itself is a crunch clash for Spurs, with increasing discontent from supporters over the club’s inconsistency this season and pressure building after successive defeats to Sheffield United and Wolves last week. 

Conte is set to return to the dugout after being absent since the first leg of the tie in Milan, with the head coach forced to watch from Italy after undergoing surgery to remove his gallbladder. 

In his pre-match press conference, the Italian thanked his coaching staff for their work in his absence, with the head coach insisting he has ‘recovered energy’. 

The North London side currently occupy a place in the top four of the Premier League, but face a fight to qualify for the Champions League this season, while the tie against Stefano Pioli’s side represents their last hope of silverware.
