West Ham fans are planning to hold a minute’s applause in memory of supporter Sami Sidhom, who was killed on his way home from a game.
Sami was fatally stabbed outside his home in Forest Gate as he made his way home from the club’s match against Stoke City on April 16.
Widely shared posts on social media indicate a large number of fans intend to honour Sami’s life in the 18th minute of Sunday’s match against Manchester City.
Sami, a Queen Mary University student, was 18-years-old.
While the game is being played there will also be a peace walk from the Fox and Hound in Forest Gate to Woolwich, organised by Sami’s neighbour, Annu Mayor.
