The Boxing Day match was uncertain to go ahead due to concerns regarding proposed industrial action on the London Underground and it has now been confirmed it has been called off.

London Underground drivers are to stage three strikes in a row over Bank Holiday pay, with the first scheduled for December 26.

A statement on the Hammers' website read: "West Ham United and Arsenal liaised closely with all the relevant agencies, including the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, London Underground, The Premier League and Islington Council, in order to reach this decision."

Arsenal added: "The paramount concern was always the duty of care towards the Arsenal supporters, West Ham United supporters, matchday employees and workers and indeed everyone who was planning to attend the game on Boxing Day."

The match will be rescheduled on either Wednesday, January 23 (19.45 GMT), or Saturday, January 26 (15.00 GMT), depending on the results in the FA Cup third round.
