Norwich vs West Ham by Sors
The club signed with experienced player like Youssouf Mulumbu (midf.) from West Bromwich, while Michael Turner (def.), Kyle Lafferty and Ricky van Wolfswinkel have returned from loan.
The hosts showed good football in most of their friendlies this summer, having won four of those five encounters (2-0 vs Middlesbrough, 7-0 vs Gorleston, 10-0 vs Hitchin, 3-1 vs Cambridge United, 2-1 vs Augsburg), with one defeat against Maccabi Haifa in this period (0-1).
West Ham, on the other hand, is a team with more quality in the squad compared with Norwich (at least on paper), but this match comes in a very delicate moment for the Hammers.
The guests have played two friendly games over the past week (0-1 vs Colchester and 0-0 vs Charlton), plus 120 min. in Ta’ Qali against Birkirkara in Europa League last Thursday.
In addition to that, West Ham will play against Astra (in Europa League) only 48 hrs. after this match, so I doubt that Slaven Bilic will risk any of his regular starters today.
Everything speaks in favor of the home team here and I think that Norwich will win that game.
