The London Underground is likely to be closed if planned industrial action by drivers goes ahead, and there are limited mainline train services in and out of the capital.

Arsenal warned earlier this month they would consider rearranging the derby in the event of a strike.

And a statement on the club website read: "We are currently in discussions with the Premier League, West Ham United, police and relevant authorities over the possible postponement of the Boxing Day fixture.

"The match is in doubt due to the difficulties of getting 60,000 supporters, plus matchday staff and employees to the stadium safely in the advent of disruption to public transport on a public holiday.

"The club will make a further announcement as soon as a final decision is made."

Arsenal put back for 24 hours last year's Boxing Day fixture with Wolves in similar circumstances, but Newcastle are due to visit on 29 December so it would almost certainly be January before the West Ham game could be played.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
