London: Premier League bosses have warned fans to avoid “excessive singing” and hugs.
The crowd will be in attendance as West Ham welcome their first English high-flying match of the season, Manchester United.
Government restrictions mean that only 2,000 fans will be allowed to watch the match at London Stadium starting at 1730 GMT.
Chelsea’s match against Leeds at Stamford Bridge starting from 2000 GMT will have 2,000 fans.
The Premier League advised on safety measures on Saturday, in which fans were warned not to walk away when their team scored a goal.
“Fans can celebrate but socially stay away from people outside their social bubble,” the advice said.
“Fans are asked to be respectful of those around them, including avoiding hugging other fans and hi-fives and avoiding a loud cry or song.”
The Premier League claims clubs have missed out on fan presence since the coronavirus shutdown in March.
Supporters must complete a health questionnaire and face a floor temperature check. They also have to wear face masks.
Fans sit in socially distant seats other than families or “home bubbles”.
London and Liverpool are the only places in the Tier-2 division to be based on Kovid-19 rates, meaning 2,000 fans will be able to attend the matches.
But clubs in the Tier 3 region, Manchester and Birmingham, are yet to open their gates.
