Premier League: West Ham United v Norwich City match preview
A look ahead to this week’s Premier League fixture at the Upton Park
Tuesday 11 February 2014
Kevin Nolan’s two goals against both Swansea and Aston Villa have seen the Hammers climb out of the relegation zone and they will be looking to continue their good form when Norwich visit Upton Park on Tuesday night.
Sam Allardyce will be without Andy Carroll again as he serves the second of his three-match ban but with captain Nolan finding form, the Hammers will be confident going into the match.
Norwich also have reason to think they can get a positive result following their superb performance to hold Manchester City to a 0-0 draw last weekend.
Goals have been the issue for both these sides so far this term but with West Ham’s key players coming back to fitness, they will be hoping to build upon their recent good results and climb the table, Norwich, of course, need to do the same.
