Two games involving four of the biggest soccer teams in Europe were blanketed by a snowstorm yesterday in London.The snow was light enough to play through, but heavy enough to make for some awesome scenes.

In the afternoon, Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-1 in west London as the snow was just beginning to fall.

At night, Tottenham tied Manchester United 1-1 in north London through a constant snow shower.

There are some tremendous pictures from the day. We pulled out our favourites.
