This one is tough to read, Norwich City are on a five game losing streak and desperately need a win to get themselves up out of the relegation zone. With Newcastle traveling to Chelsea the Canaries have to feel like a home win here will lift them above the magpies and give them some chance of survival. Norwich have been a little unlucky at times this season but their latest run of results have all been comprehensive defeats, they have lost at home 3-0 twice in their last three home games and the other loss to Liverpool 5-4 was a disasterous game. But Norwcich before those three results were unbeaten in five at home with draws against Arsenal and Everton and a win over Southampton. Those type of results are what give Norwich City fans hope of survival, I think that although it's a tough game Norwich are going to fancy this one on Saturday.
With the West Ham team coming into this off 120 minutes of football in a cup replay against Liverpool on Tuesday night there is every chance that the hammers are going to be a little leg weary. Slaven Bilic's side have been tough to beat in the league with only two losses in their last twelve games. The hammers have also welcomed back star man Dimitri Payet who's terrific free kick set up the winner midweek. With Enner Valencia back and Noble, Carroll and Antonio all playing well this is a side who have been playing some really good football but not quite getting wins. West Ham are in sixth in the table and have eyes on a European place, they also probably have eyes on an FA Cup run. I think that this may be a let down spot for West Ham though and I like Norwich here.
I am taking Norwich to get the win. The Canaries are desperate, they need the win and they will have to get all the three points they can at home. I think Norwich just about sneak this one to give themselves a realistic chance of survival.
