According to the Press Association, the tube strike which threatened to make the matchday travel experience a nightmare for Arsenal fans tomorrow night, has been called off.

Arsene Wenger had been asked earlier if the strike would affect the fixture, and said, “The game will go on, that is for sure. We are sorry for our fans about the Tube strike because many people will have to walk there.
“But we have improved the number of stewards and the safety and security of our fans should be guaranteed. Unfortunately these are not the best conditions to go into a game like that.”
You may insert your own joke about Man United fans, London and their journey home here.
Update: further clarification is needed on this, with an announcement expected this afternoon.
