Nail your colours to Hammers at Upton Park

WEST HAM v NORWICH

IT’S been a difficult Christmas period for both West Ham and Norwich but I expect home advantage to be crucial when the sides meet in Tuesday’s Premier League clash at Upton Park.

Both have problems with players missing but I am pretty sure that Sam Allardyce would have targeted this match as the most important over the festive time and the Hammers can take three points from a Norwich team who have had to face West Brom, Chelsea and Manchester City in recent days.

That’s one game more than West Ham and at this stage I would take the fresher legs every time.

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Bayern have won 16 of their last 18 Bundesliga home games
Expert verdict
Pep Guardiola has left but Bayern Munich have a stronger squad after the signings of Renato Sanches and Mats Hummels and should brush Werder Bremen aside at the Allianz Arena. Bayern won 5-0 at home to Hamburg in last season's opener and should be easy winners over Bremen, who finished last season just five points outside the bottom two.
