Wenger to decide on Arsenal training schedule after West Ham postponement

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he is unsure about his training plans for the squad over Christmas.

The Gunners, who meet Wigan Athletic this weekend, were set to host West Ham United on Boxing Day but that fixture has been postponed due to industrial action by London Underground workers.

Wenger is now uncertain about what path he will take in regards to keeping his players sharp between Saturday's trip to Wigan and the December 29 home clash with Newcastle United.

"Ideally I would have loved to play," Wenger said.

"However, the authorities decided to cancel the game, so we have to accept it and play that game at another moment of the season.

"We will practice on Boxing Day for sure, but Christmas Day? I have not decided yet."
