Norwich vs West Ham: Premier League – LIVE!

The Hammers are at Carrow Road this afternoon looking to swiftly bounce back from their Europa League heartbreak.

David Moyes’ side were ousted from the semi-finals by Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany on Thursday, switching focus back to Premier League matters.

West Ham can return to European competition next term, though are six points adrift of Manchester United in the final Europa League spot with two games in hand over Ralf Rangnick’s side, who were embarrassed by Brighton yesterday.

Wolves sit two points behind in eighth after snatching a last-gasp draw at Chelsea and West Ham will be eager to end a dismal run of only one win in their last eight games across all competitions.

Rock-bottom Norwich, meanwhile, have little to play for after their latest instant relegation back to the Championship was confirmed following a 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa last weekend.

Dean Smith’s Canaries are hoping to avoid equalling a club record with their 12th home league loss of the season, but have won only one of their last 14 matches against today’s opponents.

Prediction

West Ham have hardly been at their best of late but this is a team who have shown plenty of character. That, coupled with Norwich’s awful run of form, makes an away win very likely.

West Ham to win, 2-0.
