West Ham vs Norwich City Predictions and Betting Tips
The London Stadium is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter as West Ham play hosts to Norwich City in the English top-flight this Wednesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Unbeaten in six against the Canaries, the Hammers head into this game as overwhelming favourites to come away with all three points. What do Dean Smith and his troops have up their sleeve this Wednesday ?
West Ham in search for a fourth straight victory
The Hammers didn't have the best run in December, winning just two of the seven games they featured across all tournaments. They seem to have returned to form, however, as they head into this game off the back of three straight wins. David Moyes and his troops closed off 2021 with a win away from a Watford before kicking off the new year with a 3-2 victory against London rivals Crystal Palace. They made it two from two since the turn of the year in their FA Cup tie against Leeds United last weekend courtesy of goals from Lanzini and Bowen. Avoiding defeat this Wednesday should send the Hammers back into the top four but with the competition expected to get heated up as we dabble into the second half of the season, they can't afford a slip up against the rock bottom side Norwich City.
Norwich did overcome a five-game losing streak last weekend in their FA Cup 3rd round encounter with Charlton Athletic. Substitute Milot Rashica came on to score the winner on the 79th-minute mark much to the delight of the away supporters. Still and all, their poor form in the league can't be overlooked and although we would see them jump out of the relegation zone with a win here, this is pretty unlikely given that not only have they lost all of their last five league games, they've also failed to score in each of them.
