Jarrod Bowen scored a brace as West Ham climbed back into the Champions League places in one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Bowen scored his first goal just before halftime after he turned in a cross from Vladimir Coufal. He has been in spectacular form this season and added a second seven minutes from time, getting on the end of a low cross from Arthur Masauku.
West Ham: Fabianski (7), Coufal (7), Dawson (7), Diop (7), Cresswell (7), Rice (7), Fornals (7), Bowen (9), Lanzini (7), Vlasic (7), Antonio (7).
Subs: Yarmolenko (n/a), Masuaku (6).
Norwich: Krul (7), Aarons (7), Hanley (6), Gibson (6), Williams (6), Lees-Melou (5), McLean (5), Rashica (5), Placheta (5), Pukki (5), Idah (7).
Subs: Dowell (5), Tzolis (5), Rowe (n/a)
Man of the match: Jarrod Bowen.
Norwich manager Dean Smith: “There was enough in that performance to give us encouragement. It was better than our three previous displays and we were in the game for long periods. I felt it was fairly even in the first half. I was disappointed with the manner of the first goal and the timing of it can certainly take the stuffing out of you. I wanted the players to show more urgency in the second half but unfortunately, West Ham did.”
West Ham boss David Moyes: “It was a good performance. Norwich is fighting for points. We had to put the barricades up a little bit but with our attacking threat, we’ve always got a goal in us. It would have been nice to get a hat-trick but to get two goals, three points and a clean sheet is good enough.”
