West Ham play host to Norwich City in the Premier League tonight in what will be an absolutely vital game for both sides, but for very different reasons.

The Hammers are currently flying high in fifth spot in the Premier League table, just one point adrift of fourth placed Arsenal. We can leapfrog the Gunners with a win tonight.

Meanwhile, the Canaries are languishing at the bottom of the table, having taken just 10 points from 19 games so far. Dean Smith’s side can jump up level on points with 17th placed Watford with a victory in East London tonight though.

However, West Ham will be clear favourites tonight, and it would be a real shock if Norwich left the London Stadium with any kind of positive result.

The Hammers have only lost once against the East Anglia outfit in 13 games since 1994 and are unbeaten at home against them since 1989.

A victory tonight will be crucial to our hopes of finishing inside the Champions League places this season. Absolutely nothing less than a win will do.

The Scot has obviously had to mix things up with Tomas Soucek set to miss out having contracted Covid.

The good news is that we still look like a very strong side on paper, however. Moyes has been able to field a very competitive team for tonight’s game against Norwich and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be winning this one.

Having Aaron Cresswell back is a huge boost as well.

A comfortable victory is the order of the day.

A couple of goals, a clean sheet, three points and we move on.

West Ham play host to Leeds on Sunday before travelling to Manchester United the following Saturday.

The Hammers then have a couple of weeks off for the winter break before we’re back in action again in the FA Cup against Kidderminster Harriers.

Tonight’s result will set the tone for the remainder of the season.

We’re backing the boys to win this one comfortably. COYI X
