An insider has made a big claim about the Everton vs West Ham clash next weekend amid official protocols after the Queen’s passing.
The world was brought to a standstill yesterday when it was confirmed Her Majesty the Queen had passed away aged 96.
Queen Elizabeth II opened West Ham’s redeveloped West Stand at Upton Park and was said to have been a Hammers fan.
Authorities did consider calling off West Ham’s Europa Conference League game against FCSB last night.
But according to Sky News it was decided the game would go ahead in the interest of the safety of supporters, thousands of whom were already at the London Stadium.
West Ham won the match 3-1 and supporters paid a stirring tribute, replacing a planned minute’s silence with applause and several renditions of God Save The Queen.
Everton did not have a game in midweek and face Arsenal in north London on Sunday.
In east London David Moyes’ Hammers are due to meet Eddie Howes Magpies. A decision is set to be made on West Ham’s match with Newcastle United this weekend.
West Ham then travel to Everton, managed by former Hammer Frank Lampard, next Sunday afternoon.
Now a Hammers insider has made a big claim about the Everton vs West Ham clash next weekend amid official protocols after the Queen’s death.
A West Ham insider has highlighted that the game between Moyes’ boys and his old club Everton could well be postponed with 10 days of official mourning in light of Her Majesty’s passing and a likely state funeral around that time (6foot2).
“It is too early to say what will happen with Everton away with the Hammers trip to Goodison Park the following Sunday but with 10 days of official mourning and a state funeral likely planned around that time, that fixture too could yet be postponed,” 6foot2 report having spoken to West Ham insiders.
“The Premier League, FA and clubs will most likely make statements soon to give supporters time to make arrangements.”
