The writing has been on the wall for a long time, but struggling Norwich City could have their relegation confirmed with a defeat to West Ham United on Saturday.
David Moyes’ Hammers have picked up some form in recent weeks and will be looking for three points in their own battle against relegation against a Norwich side that have lost their last six Premier League outings.
Who will win the game?
The visitors are strong favourites here, and rightly so given the big discrepancies in form between the two sides. Norwich look like going down with a whimper, making it five straight defeats in the league since the restart, while West Ham have picked up form at just the right time with impressive performances to beat Chelsea 3-2 before a spirited display at St. James' Park saw take a deserved point in a 2-2 draw last weekend.
Which team will score the first goal?
West Ham have only taken the lead in one of their last five Premier League outings, although they were unfortunate a controversial VAR-assisted decision denied them going ahead against Chelsea. Norwich surprisingly took the lead after just four minutes against Watford in midweek, but before that had gone behind in their last five league outings, all defeats in which they failed to score. West Ham look the likeliest side to go ahead here, given their goalscoring form of late.
Home over/under 1.5 goals – yes or no?
Norwich have scored just five goals in 14 games since the turn of the year, at least six fewer than any other side. Emiliano Buendia's early opener at Vicarage Road on Tuesday ended a goal drought of over 450 minutes in the league, and they've scored two or more goals in just five of 34 Premier League games this season. It appears extremely unlikely they'll score more than once here, even with West Ham's defensive frailties.
How many shots will Michail Antonio take?
The Hammers forward is the squad's most prolific shooter this season, averaging 2.5 shots per game this season. That's risen in recent weeks, and he registered five shots in their recent 3-2 win over Chelsea. Three shots against the league's bottom-placed side is a reasonable estimate.
