West Ham and Manchester City’s Premier League clash is being screened for fans at a nearby cinema, leaving many confused amid the government’s ban on supporters attending fixtures.

West Ham ’s showdown with Manchester City can be watched by fans at a cinema just five minutes away from the London Stadium – despite supporters not being allowed to attend the fixture.

Saturday’s crunch Premier League clash is being screened in the Vue Cinema at Stratford’s Westfield Shopping Centre, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the ground.

The cinema will be able to seat more than 100 fans, who will have to pay £6.99 each if they want to watch the action unfold.

But given they have been prevented from attending West Ham’s outdoor 60,000-seater stadium, fans gathering indoors to watch the match at a nearby screening is somewhat baffling.
