The Cottagers are concerned over the potential impact a strike would have on the ability of its safety staff to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers to comply with the terms of its safety certificate.
Club officials held talks with the Local Authority and the Metropolitan Police and are set to make a final decision on Tuesday afternoon on whether or not the game will go ahead.
However, the TSSA has now confirmed it has suspended its 48-hour strike after reaching a last-minute deal at ACAS with London Underground.
The RMT union is also involved in the dispute over ticket office closures and its members are still due to take industrial action, although talks are continuing with ACAS.
An ACAS spokesman said: "Talks have adjourned at ACAS this morning. London Underground will be writing to the trade unions with some proposals to end this dispute.
"We are hopeful of a positive response so that the proposed industrial action will be withdrawn."
Arsenal have confirmed they expect their match with Manchester United on Wednesday to go ahead as planned but have offered travel advice on their official website, encouraging fans to use rail services and walk to and from the Emirates.
