Since moving to their new home in Stratford in the summer of 2016, West Ham have enjoyed very little success on the new turf and that was certainly not helped by the victory Southampton claimed in east London last season.
Police will be present both inside and outside the stadium, and West Ham have now erected a barrier around the directors box at the London Stadium, where Sullivan, Gold and managing director Karren Brady were confronted by hundreds of fans during the Burnley game.
Writing in the Evening Standard, Brooking described his emotions that day as "shock, sadness and frustration" and called on fans to "park their strong feelings" about how the club is being run until the summer, hopefully after West Ham's Premier League status has been preserved. He said he never wants to see scenes like that again and pleaded with fans "to channel your passion to get behind the team".More news: United Nations chief warns of new Cold War as Russian Federation expels USA diplomats
A club statement read: "Heightened measures will include a significantly enhanced number of police officers and security personnel at London Stadium, as well as a dynamic pitch response team".
It will be the Hammers' first home game since fan violence and FOUR pitch invasions marred their 3-0 loss to Burnley this month. "The safety of all supporters and visitors to the London Stadium is of paramount importance".
Most importantly for Khan, though, is the fact that these measures will be paid for by London taxpayers, not West Ham.More news: 4th Test match - Summary
