West Ham United came away victorious quite comfortably by 2-0 against the bottom side Norwich City in a crucial Premier League encounter on Wednesday night.
Having scored both goals in either side of both halves, Jarrod Bowen was the match-winner for David Moyes’ side. Meanwhile, following this victory the Hammers moved up to the fourth spot with 37 points in 21 games.
On the other hand, Norwich are looking likely to get relegated. As they are currently at the bottom of the table with 10 points in 20 games. If they manage to save themselves from this situation. Then that will be one of the biggest relegation escapes of the League’s history.

Lukasz Fabianski – 6/10
The Polish keeper enjoyed a pretty comfortable night as there weren’t many attacking threats from the opposition.
Vladimir Coufal – 7/10
Provided the assist for Bowen on the first goal and also did well defensively.
Craig Dawson – 6.5/10
The former Watford man wasn’t required to do much in defence but did very well when he was required.

The same can be said about the other centre-back who did well against Norwich.
Aaron Cresswell – 6/10
The defender did perfectly when he needed to contribute defensively and did well going forward.
Manuel Lanzini – 7/10
Started the game in place of Tomas Soucek and displayed a tidy performance in the midfield pivot role.
Declan Rice – 7/10
The captain progressed the ball excellently from deep and shielded the backline perfectly.
Nikola Vlasic – 5.5/10
Got the chance to start the game but didn’t enjoy a great time. He needs time to settle down in the Premier League.

Jarrod Bowen – 8/10
Scored both goals for West Ham and displayed a productive performance.
Michail Antonio – 5.5/10

Played only 12 minutes but made his mark by producing the assist on the second goal for Bowen.
Andriy Yarmolenko – N/A
The Ukrainian replaced Antonio very late in the game and didn’t have enough time to make his mark in this game.
