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.

Hamburg v E Frankfurt

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Hamburg have only scored two goals this season
Expert verdict
Only basement boys Ingolstadt have made a worse start to the season than Hamburg and Markus Gisdol’s men may receive little respite when Frankfurt come to town. The visitors have looked a solid unit this term and were unlucky not to topple Bayern Munich in their last outing which finished in a 2-2 draw.
