THE TEAM NEWS

WEST HAM

  • West Ham have picked up wins in the league against Watford and in the League Cup against Newport to give them a confidence boost.
  • Aside from an injury to Antonio, there have been plenty of positives for them to take from the last week and the two victories.
  • Haller got his first goals in West Ham colours last weekend and Manuel Pellegrini will likely name the same eleven from the Watford match.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Masuaku; Noble, Rice; Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Felipe Anderson; Haller

Unavailable: Reid (Injured), Antonio (Injured)

Doubtful: Hernandez (Injured)

NORWICH

  • Norwich lost a five-goal thriller against Chelsea last weekend and were then dumped out of the League Cup in midweek by Crawley Town.
  • Klose returned to action in midweek after injury but only last 27 minutes and the Swiss international faces another spell on the sidelines.
  • Despite losing last weekend, Daniel Farke is unlikely to make any major changes although Vrancic and McLean are candidates to come in.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Zimmermann, Lewis; Trybull, Leitner; Buendia, Stiepermann, Cantwell; Pukki

Unavailable: Klose (Injured), Thompson (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Hanley (Injured)

Doubtful: Zimmermann (Injured), Drmic (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

This match has all the makings of one of the more entertaining games this weekend. West Ham have plenty of firepower and creativity in their ranks, while Norwich have shown they will stay true to their style of play. Expect plenty of goals in this one, but the hosts have to be favoured to edge it.
