Bitesize Prediction: Norwich vs West Ham – 08/05/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: West Ham win

Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport

Desperate to make a much-needed return to winning ways on Sunday afternoon, West Ham will make the trip to Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, with their immediate relegation to the Championship confirmed with plenty of time to spare, it is fair to say that Norwich are really limping their way over the finish line. Despite making the decision to bring in Dean Smith earlier in the season, the east Anglia outfit still find themselves firmly sat at the foot of the Premier League table. Last seen getting hit with a routine 2-0 defeat away at Aston Villa, Norwich have lost each of their last three top-flight contests on the spin. Managing to win just one of their last 12 straight outings, a run that stems all the way back to a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace on February 9th, Sunday’s hosts also hold a woeful record against the Hammers. Including a 4-0 visit the last time West Ham visited Carrow Road, they have lost their last three meetings against the top-six outsiders.

As for the visitors, eventually crashing out of the Europa League at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt earlier in the week, West Ham find themselves in the midst of a real rut. Now losing each of their last four matchups across all formats, David Moyes’ men are desperate to try and find some kind of boost at Carrow Road. However, watching both Manchester United and Wolves drop more points on Saturday, the one-time Everton boss faces a real must-win showdown in east Anglia. Despite enduring what has been billed as their worst run of the 2021/22 campaign, they should at least be smelling a golden chance away from the London Stadium. Claiming a 2-0 win when they welcomed Norwich to east London back in January, we’re backing a similar away victory for the Hammers on Sunday afternoon.
