Game Report

Highlights

West Ham United continued their positive run with a routine victory over Norwich City. The Hammers were the more proficient side up front with Sebastien Haller on the scoresheet again and Andriy Yarmolenko wrapping up the points.

Detail

A decent start to the game from the visitors who saw a lot of early possession. They struggled to get the prolific Teemu Pukki in the game though and suffered a blow when captain Christoph Zimmermann went off injured.

West Ham looked the more dangerous side when they did get the ball forward and eventually took the lead. Arthur Masuaku surged forward from left-back and crossed for Haller to convert.

Norwich had difficulty creating chances all game but when they did have a great one to equalise - they were wasteful. Max Aarons' cross was a little high for Todd Cantwell but he still should have scored with an open goal in front of him.

The home side dominated the second half and got the killer second goal thanks to Yarmolenko. The Ukrainian had hit the post with a volley but found the net with another one shortly afterwards.

The scoreline could have been worse for the Canaries if not for their goalkeeper. Tim Krul made a fine double-save to deny Felipe Anderson from distance and Haller on the rebound.

Summary

West Ham clearly had more class at the top end of the pitch and that was the difference on the day. Norwich had good spells but failed to find invention in the final third.
