Arsenal's match against Wolverhampton postponed

Arsenal's scheduled English Premier League match Monday against Wolverhampton was postponed to Tuesday due to a proposed strike by public transit workers.

The match was one of eight scheduled for Monday, but will not be played as one of three on Tuesday.

"The club has been liaising closely in order to make this decision, with all the relevant agencies, including the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, London Underground, The Premier League, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Islington Council," Arsenal said in a statement on its website.

"The paramount concern was always the duty of care towards the Arsenal supporters, Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters, Matchday employees, workers and indeed everyone who was planning to attend the match on Boxing Day."

Swansea City hosts QPR, and Norwich City hosts Tottenham in the other fixtures Tuesday.

Chelsea hosts Fulham, Bolton hosts Newcastle, Liverpool hosts Blackburn, West Bromwich hosts Manchester City, Sunderland hosts Everton, Manchester United hosts Wigan, and Stoke City hosts Aston Villa in Monday's matches.
