The Merseyside giants are due to take on the west London club in a match of huge importance to both sides, with the home team currently struggling near the foot of the table, while the visitors themselves are pushing for a place in next season’s Uefa Champions League.

However, with another tube strike planned for this week, the eagerly anticipated clash could be postponed, with Fulham saying in a statement on Monday: “The Club has concerns over the potential impact that the strike may have on the ability of its safety staff to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers to ensure that it is able to open the ground and effectively operate it, from the time that the gates are open to the public until the departure of all supporters.”

Meanwhile, a statement from Transport For London on the planned strikes reads: “The RMT and TSSA unions have called a strike on the Tube which will affect services from 21:30 on Tuesday 11 February. Some services will operate between 07:00-23:00 on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 February with last trains departing Central London from around 21:30.”
