West Ham United will officially relegate Norwich City back to the Championship if they win at Carrow Road on Saturday.
That’s after Daniel Farke’s side surrendered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to relegation rivals Watford on Tuesday night.
The result drew Watford level on 31 points with West Ham having played a game more.
Should West Ham beat Burnley tonight they would have one foot in the Premier League next year.
It’s official West Ham will relegate Norwich with win
Whatever happens West Ham go to Norwich on Saturday knowing a win will officially relegate the Canaries.
Norwich are bottom on 21 points and will have just nine points to play for if they lose to West Ham.
David Moyes’s side look to have turned a corner with a thrilling 3-2 win over Chelsea and a 2-2 draw at Newcastle.
Norwich have struggled all season and it is a game West Ham will be looking to win. The Hammers won the reverse fixture 2-0 earlier in the season.
West Ham safe by weekend depending on results elsewhere
A victory over Burnley will put West Ham on 34 points. Follow that up with another win over Norwich and depending on the results for Aston Villa and Bournemouth the Hammers could go 10 points clear and officially be safe.
Villa face Manchester United and Crystal Palace while Bournemouth take on Tottenham and Leicester.
Needless to say it is a huge week for Moyes and West Ham.
Will high pressure situation cripple or inspire Hammers?
But is the high pressure situation good or bad news for West Ham?
Will it inspire or cripple the West Ham players?
Knowing they will be relegated by a defeat, Norwich may come out fighting and present a more difficult proposition for the Hammers.
And the incentive for West Ham knowing they can secure safety with two wins will brings its own pressures.
One thing is for certain, there is never a dull moment at West Ham.
