Arsenal have confirmed their Barclays Premier League clash with London rivals West Ham on Boxing Day has been postponed due to the proposed industrial action on the tube.
London Underground drivers are to stage three strikes in a row over Bank Holiday pay, with the first scheduled for December 26. The move by members of the union Aslef threatens travel chaos in the capital and the Gunners have decided to call off the clash at Emirates Stadium, with both clubs' fans in mind.
"As a result of Monday's strike ballot and the proposed industrial action on London Underground on Boxing Day, Arsenal's Premier League match against West Ham United at Emirates Stadium, originally planned for Wednesday, December 26, has been postponed," said a statement on the club's official website.
