Arsenal fans travelling back from tonight’s Premier League fixture with Newcastle should expect significant disruption, according to TfL.

It is unlikely that London Underground trains will be serving Finsbury Park, Arsenal Tube, Holloway Road or Highbury and Islington stations after the strike which begins at 9.30pm.

A statement on the gunners website “strongly advised” fans to find alternative ways to return home from the game which will finish at about 9.45pm.

Other public transport options suggested by the club include walking to King’s Cross, St. Pancras International, Liverpool Street and Euston to connect with National Rail and local bus services.

First Capital Connect services will be running from Finsbury Park as normal.

A club spokesman said: “Supporters are advised that tube services may be affected at stations around Emirates Stadium before kick-off and are strongly urged to identify other means of transport for their homebound journeys following the match, as it is unlikely that there will be any Tube services in operation.”
