PREMIER LEAGUE: West Ham continue winning streak at expense of Norwich

West Ham United have extended their winning streak to three Premier League matches by beating Norwich City 2-0 at Upton Park on Tuesday night.

The Hammers moved up to 10th on the table thanks to late goals from James Collins and Mohamed Diame in what was a tight contest until the end.

Collins headed West Ham into the lead in the 84th minute when he courageously flung himself at Diame’s low cross before the midfielder ensured the victory deep into injury-time when he turned the ball home as the Canaries chased an equaliser.

Chris Hughton’s Norwich probably deserved at least a point from the fairly even affair but it wasn’t to be as Sam, Allardyce’s men, led by goalkeeper Adrian’s first-half performance, got the job done.

West Ham are now undefeated in their past four outings having not conceded a goal during that unbeaten run while the Canaries have failed to win in four which seems them sitting 16th, just a point above the drop zone.
