Nail your colours to Hammers at Upton Park


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.

Key stats
  • England have kept four clean sheets in a row and five in their last six
Expert verdict
This is Ronald Koeman’s first game in charge of the Oranje and, as well as saying farewell to the likes of Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder and ignoring the claims of Daley Blind and Robin van Persie, he’s brought in five new faces. England have been defensively very good in recent internationals, with clean sheets against world champions Germany and Brazil, and are un likely to be beaten.
