Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Norwich City were not exactly predicted a bottom three finish before the season started, but they have slipped below the dotted line following a dismal run of results. The Canaries not only suffered six straight Premier League defeats, but were soundly beaten in four of those five games, conceding shocking 16 goals in the process, with last week's loss to relegation rivals Aston Villa especially disappointing. And with important midfielder Alexander Tettey missing through suspension, Alex Neil's charges face a tough task against high-flying West Ham. The Hammers have largely impressed this season, climbing to sixth in the overall standings, and their 5-4-4 away record gives them plenty of reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Carrow Road. Taking also into account that the Boleyn Ground outfit will be high on confidence after beating Liverpool to reach the FA Cup fifth round, away win does seem on the cards.
Highlighted Team (West Ham United):
West Ham United are an English football club based in East London. The club was founded in 1895 and it has to be noted that the club’s name was Thames Ironworks back then. The Hammers were playing their home games at Upton Park from 1904 until 2016, when they moved to the Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
West Ham have won three FA Cup trophies (1964, 1975 and 1980) and they were runners-up in 1923 and 2006. The capital club finished the 1985/1986 England first division campaign in third place in the standings and that is the club’s highest placing in the top flight. West Ham United have strong rivalries with fellow London clubs, but Tottenham Hotspur are considered the club’s main rivals.
A number of top-class players were part of West Ham in the past and the likes of Joe Cole, Carlos Tevez, Paolo Di Canio, Paul Ince, Julian Dicks, Shaka Hislop, Michael Carrick and Slaven Bilic are some of them.
