last updated Monday 19th December 2011, 8:34 PM
Chelsea say they are monitoring the London underground strike situation ahead of their Boxing Day derby against Fulham.

Trade union Aslef has announced industrial action that could shut down the London underground system.

A Chelsea statement read: "Chelsea football club would like to make clear that we are consulting with London Transport, the Metropolitan Police and all relevant local authorities regarding our Barclays Premier League fixture with Fulham at Stamford Bridge on December 26.

"At present, a proposed industrial strike on London Underground, combined with the lack of national rail services in operation could make reaching the stadium difficult both for Chelsea and Fulham supporters, as well as matchday staff and employees, all of whose safety and wellbeing remains our primary concern.

Arsenal are also monitoring the situation and will decide within 48 hours whether or not to delay their Boxing Day match.
