Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Carrow Road will host Sunday’s football game between Norwich City and West Ham United, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Canaries aim to put an end to their three-game losing run, but seeing that they failed to secure the Premier League survival, home win should not be considered. The likes of Idah, Kabak, Zimmermann, and Omobamidele should miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Hammers, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team collecting only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. The capital club aim to stay in the Conference League berth, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Michail Antonio is widely expected to return to the starting XI after missing the 2-1 loss to Arsenal, while Angelo Ogbonna remains in the treatment room.
Highlighted Player (Grant Hanley):
Grant Hanley is Scottish footballer who plays for Norwich City as defender. Hanley was born in Dumfries, Scotland, on November 20, 1991 and he started his youth career at Queen of the South. After ending his spells with Crewe Alexandra and Rangers, the Scottish player joined English club Blackburn Rovers, where he started his senior career.
After scoring eight goals in 183 appearances for the Riversiders in league matches, he moved to fellow English club Newcastle United in July, 2016 for an undisclosed fee. Grant Hanley, though, made no more than 10 appearances for Newcastle United in the Championship before joining Norwich City. The 191-cm-tall defender made his full international debut for Scotland against Wales on in May, 2011.
He scored his first goal for the Scotland national football team in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Wales. His contract with Norwich City should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (West Ham):
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.
