West Ham United Form & Team News

 
West Ham United picked up their win of the new Premier League season this past weekend when they comfortably defeated Watford 3-1 away from home. Mark Noble scored from the penalty spot before Sebastian Haller grabbed a brace. 

The Hammers followed that up with a 2-0 win away at League Two Newport County in the English League Cup. Jack Wilshere and Pablo Fornals got themselves on the scoresheet for the Hammers. 

Manuel Pellegrini made several changes to his side for the match at Newport and is likely to revert back to a similar side to the one who defeated Watford. Sebastian Haller is likely to return to the line up after Albian Ajeti made his debut against Newport. 

Pellegrini’s men are priced at 1.85 with bet365 to pick up their first home win of the season this Saturday. The Hammers were beaten 5-0 at home in their last game by Manchester City but should be able to defeat teams like Norwich at home if they are to challenge for Europe this season.

Norwich City Form & Team News 


Norwich City have been one of the most entertaining sides in the Premier League so far this season. Their last game saw them lose 3-2 at Carrow Road in a thrilling game with Chelsea. Todd Cantwell grabbed one of the goals while Teemu Pukki grabbed his fifth goal of the campaign so far. 

Pukki has been the side’s star so far this season and Norwich’s goalscoring has seen them witness over 3.5 goals in each of their games so far this campaign. There is great value in that happening again with odds of 2.20 with bet365. 

Teemu Pukki will lead the line for the Canaries again on Saturday as Daniel Farke is not likely to make many changes from last Saturday’s game. He used Tuesday night’s cup defeat at Crawley Town as an opportunity to provide his main eleven with a rest. 

The Canaries are at odds of 4.00 to pick up the win. They have yet to pick up any points on the road in the Premier League this season and West Ham will be a very difficult game. 

West Ham United vs Norwich City Match Analysis - Exciting game ahead 


West Ham and Norwich have both had entertaining starts to the season. In their six games combined, five of them have seen over 3.5 goals, with West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Brighton being the only exception. 

West Ham should have enough firepower to overcome the Canaries though. The Hammers will be feeling confident after back to back wins in league and cup and will see Norwich as a very winnable game.

West Ham United vs Norwich City Betting Tips - Goals and a West Ham Win

 
West Ham United are my tips to win this game. Home advantage and a difference in quality should be enough to ensure a win for the London side. 

I am also tipping there to be over 3.5 goals at 2.20 which presents great value given how exciting both teams have been so far this campaign. Teemu Pukki has also scored for fun in recent weeks and he is great value at 2.75 in the anytime goalscorer market. 

Verdict

West Ham and Norwich have both been exciting to watch this season but West Ham should have enough to overcome their opponents on Saturday. 

Teemu Pukki is on fire for the visitors now though and a bet on him in the goalscorer markets is worth a small outlay.
