West Ham 2 – 0 Norwich

West Ham moved up to fourth in the Premier League as they inflicted a sixth consecutive defeat on bottom club Norwich at London Stadium.

Jarrod Bowen set the Hammers on their way, nodding in Vladimir Coufal’s inviting cross seven minutes after his earlier effort was ruled out by VAR, with Nikola Vlasic deemed to be offside and interfering with Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul.

David Moyes’ side were far from at their best but they still created enough openings to put the game beyond the visitors well before Bowen registered his second by turning in Arthur Masuaku’s cross in the 83rd minute.

Bowen also twice hit the woodwork and Michail Antonio blazed over from close range after brilliantly turning Norwich captain Grant Hanley.

On a disappointing evening for Norwich, Adam Idah went close to levelling with the score at 1-0, but saw his drive pushed on to the post by Hammers goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Bar that attempt, however, Dean Smith’s side offered little in attack and have now failed to score a top-flight goal for 540 minutes.
