LONDON - Arsenal's home match against West Ham in the English Premier League next Wednesday has been postponed until January in light of proposed strike action on the London Underground that day.

The decision was reached following discussions between police, the Premier League and local authorities.

Arsenal says on Wednesday "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."

The match at Emirates Stadium has been rearranged for either Jan. 23 or Jan. 26 — depending on the clubs' results in the FA Cup third round at the start of the month.
