EPL: Norwich vs West Ham




West Ham will put aside the pain in the Europa League to march to Carrow Road to face the relegated Norwich City, within the framework of round 36 of the English Premier League. Despite being in very bad form, however, when the opponent is only “Canary” and has run out of goals, 3 points are completely within the reach of “Sledgehammer”.

Norwich just suffered a 0-2 defeat to Aston Villa last weekend, but this result no longer makes any sense because the “Canary” officially went down to play the Championship last weekend. After just one season back in the Premier League, Norwich immediately brought sadness to the fans. Even Norwich currently holds the unwanted record, being the team that suffered the most relegation in the Premier League (6) since the formation of the squad in 1992.

The home team is at the bottom of the table with a meager 21 points brought back through 34 matches. Norwich have lost all of the last 3 matches and they have all conceded at least 2 goals in the above series of matches. They have lost 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions, with only 1 win coming in this period. Their 12 goal tally in home matches is the lowest in the league. Norwich have lost their last 3 matches against West Ham without scoring while conceding 8 goals.

Regardless of West Ham’s results in the English Premier League this season, it must be acknowledged that “sledgehammer” has a successful tournament. In the Europa League, West Ham reached the semi-finals and only lost to Eintracht Frankfurt a few days ago. Particularly in the English Premier League, coach David Moyes and his team are currently 7th in the table, 11 points behind 4th place. However, West Ham is only 6 points behind Man Utd in 6th place and kicks less than 1 match. Thus, the opportunity for West Ham to win tickets to the Europa League is still extremely open.

West Ham enter this match after losing 5 and drawing 1 in the last 6 away matches in the Premier League. However, they lost to formidable opponents such as Man Utd, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea in this series of matches. West Ham only won 1 of the last 8 matches in all competitions. Even “sledgehammer” has failed in all of the last 4 outings. West Ham have won all of the last 3 matches against Norwich.
