Arsenal put back Boxing Day fixture

ARSENAL face a festive fixture pile-up after a planned Tube strike forced the north London club to push their scheduled Boxing Day clash against Wolves back by 24 hours.

The Gunners, who confirmed tickets purchased for the match are still valid for 27 December, now face the prospect of three matches in the space of seven days. After the home match against Wolves, Arsene Wenger’s side then host QPR on 31 December, before another London derby at Fulham on 2 January.
