Norwich vs West Ham
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 11 July 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Carrow Road.
One more defeat, and the dream would be all over for the Canaries. They came into the top flight with a lot of expectations, after lifting the Championship the last season. But it’s been a tough few months for the team,
As of now, they are placed dead last in the table, with a total of 21 points from their 34 fixtures. With just four games remaining, they can secure a maximum of 33 points, and Watford, the last safe team has 31 points at the moment.
Suffice it to say, Daniel Farke’s men have no option but to go all in for the three points. Even a draw would be just catastrophic for them. Coupling this situation with their terrible defense, it seems like a perfect recipe for a goal-fest.
Moreover, they are taking on the experienced Hammers, who have a great h2h record over them as well as are desperate at the moment for points. As such, expect West Ham to deliver a win this weekend.

Norwich vs West Ham: Prediction
The Hammers lost 0-1 at home the last match-day, against Burnley. The hosts were in dire need for points, and the defeat has increased pressure upon them to deliver in this upcoming encounter.
In the meantime, the Canaries lost 2-1 on the road the past game week, against Watford. The guests had opened the scoring, but they were unable to hold on to the lead till the end.
As things stand, Moyes’s men are the favorites for the day. They are four points above the relegation cut-off, and are inches away from being safe. This match-day will be particularly important in that regards.
They are taking on the dead-last team in the relegation zone, while the 18th and 19th placed teams are pitted against two of the titans of the league. As such, if the Hammers manage to win this match-up, they could practically guarantee their stay in the top flight.
Moreover, they are unbeaten against this rival in the last seven years, and had won the reverse fixture. They had also scored two or more goals in the past three such games.
Going on, Farke’s men have conceded the most number of goals in the competition, and they have scored the least. They are also on a seven-match losing run at the moment, and are on a four-game losing run at home.
Taking into account these observations, expect West Ham to win this game convincingly.
