West Ham are bidding for three consecutive wins when they host Norwich tonight at Upton Park. The Hammers have managed to climb out of the relegation zone following a good run of form in 2014.
They started this month by keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 victory at home to Swansea following a brace from Kevin Nolan.
The West Ham skipper then scored twice against Aston Villa at Villa Park to help his side to another three points which has lifted them up to 15th in the standings.
Sam Allardyce’s side go into this evening’s game as the 21/20 favourites with bet365 in the football betting.
They will have to play without Andy Carroll once again as he serves the second of his three match ban. The East London club were unsuccessful in their appeal of the sending off which the England international picked up against the Swans.
Norwich have only been able to win one of their last 10 Premier League fixtures. That came against Hull at Carrow Road on January 18. They did though, pick up a valuable point against Manchester City in front of their home fans on Saturday. They were big underdogs with fans who bet on football for that tie but managed to hold out for a goalless draw following 90 minutes of pressure.
Chris Houghton’s men have struggled for goals recently with just two coming from their last six outings.
Robert Snodgrass will undergo a fitness test before the game after picking up a groin problem in the draw against Manchester City.
The Canaries are two points adrift of safety in 16th place. They are above only Sunderland, West Brom, Cardiff and Fulham in the table.
