Fans will be able to watch West Ham's clash with Manchester City from a cinema within walking distance of the empty London Stadium, as supporters continue to remain shut out from attending games.

The Premier League tie, set to take place on Saturday, will be screened in a number of Vue cinemas, including in the Westfield Stratford centre, just a few minutes' walk from the stadium, as first reported by The Times.

The cinema will be able to admit more than 100 fans to view the game, with tickets priced at £6.99 each for the screening.

West Ham Legend Gives His Said Benrahma Verdict

  West Ham Legend Gives His Said Benrahma Verdict West Ham legend of over Premier League appearances Carlton Cole has described Said Benrahma as ”the playmaker we’ve been looking for” whilst appearing on the TalkSport breakfast show. Currently working as an academy coach at the London Stadium, Cole said: “If we get Benrahma, he will be a great signing for the club.” The deal to bring Benrahma to the Hammers appears to be edging closer with the Algerian resolving issues between himself and current club Brentford.

West Ham 's farewell to Upton Park turned sour ahead of kick-off when Manchester United's team coach came under attack by fans . The extent of the damage to the windows was clear for all to see with the away team coach being targeted. Why was the Manchester United bus stranded outside the ground?

If West Ham fans want their club to stay in the Premier League, they have to get behind the team. They got rid of Sam Allardyce. In an away game for Arsenal in 2000 I think I might have left something on him to see if I could get a reaction — and as the picture above shows I certainly did get a reaction!

This contradiction has been raised by Tom Pendry, president of the Football Foundation.

'This vividly illustrates the complete and utter nonsense of the situation. I intend to get a full debate on this in the House of Lords,' he told The Times.

Games have been screened at cinemas this season but none have been shown at a a cinema so close to the venue.

'We are committed to getting spectators back in stadiums as soon as it is safe to do so. We will continue to work closely with a whole range of sports, including football, to understand the latest thinking that might allow spectators to return,' she said.

Supporters who view the game in the cinema will be required to don face masks when not eating or drinking.

Culture secretary Oliver Dowden last week 'accepted people's frustration at the inconsistency,' with government policy surrounding the attending of different events.

Yet Mr Dowden stressed that the decision to keep fans out of stadiums was taken on the advice of expert scientists.

In response to the #LetFansIn petition, which has garnered support from the Premier League and Football League, the DCMS said on Thursday morning: 'We will take the earliest opportunity to look again at getting spectators safely back into stadia but this must clearly be done carefully against the prevailing health conditions.

'The government is fully aware of the importance of getting spectators back and the financial consequences not to allow this from October 1.

'The evidence received from the CMO (Chief Medical Officer, Chris Whitty) was very clear, at a time of rapidly rising infections. It was not the right time to undertake easements.'
