West Ham looked pretty fine away to Watford in a 1:3 victory last weekend. After five goals conceded to Citizens in the first round, the team is slowly getting back on track and does look far more confident.
They were far sharper in attack and far more creative in midfield, while Haller seems like a player slowly getting into the desired form.
In addition, their rotated squad won over Newport County in EFL Cup match last Tuesday night, surely improving their morale slightly as well.
Offensive midfielder Antonio (3/0) is injured, as well as central back Reid who didn’t play so far.
Norwich didn’t disappoint last weekend either, although they suffered 2:3 home defeat against Chelsea – once again showing quite entertaining and offensive football.
They replied and got back into the match twice leveling up the result against the Blues, but lost the creativity and lacked more energy to match the opponent in the second halftime.
Norwich suffered exclusion in EFL Cup last Tuesday night away to Crawley in a 1:0 loss, however, there is no doubt that their primary target remains Premiership and avoiding the relegation battle and worries if possible.
Offensive Hernandez (1/0) is injured, while long-term absentees remain defender Klose and midfielder Thompson (both without playing so far). Forward Drmic is questionable not being close to full fitness.
As said already, Norwich seems pretty fine in offense and their matches are quite entertaining to watch, meanwhile, West Ham remains a favorite in this one.
Home victory looks likely, but goals are even probable in my eyes. Norwich is no pushover and even them scoring two goals wouldn’t surprise me this time.
