West Ham will host Norwich on Saturday at London Stadium. Both teams are struggling after three games, West Ham with 4 points out of 9 possible and Norwich with only 3 points. Both teams will look to their strikers to secure three points, West Ham to their new signing Sebastien Haller who scored his first two goal last game. Norwich top striker on the other hand have been proven sensational. Teemu Pukki have scored five goals in three games so he will definitely be a threat to the West Ham defense.
West Ham had a tough start of the season and lost their first game to Man City at home 0-5. The following week they visited Brighton, but the game ended in a draw, 1-1. But last Saturday the Hammers took their first 3-pointer this season, defeating Watford away 3-1. Summer signing Sebastien Haller, who scored twice in the 3-1 win over the Watford, will be one of the men to watch in the home team. The 25-year-old impressed in the 2018/2019 Bundesliga season, scoring 15 goals in 29 appearances.
Despite producing a good performance against Chelsea last Saturday, Norwich City eventually suffered a 3-2 loss to the London club at Carrow Road. The Canaries have been producing promising displays at the start of the season, but the newcomers will have to improve defensively if they are to secure the Premier League survival. On Tuesday Norwich was eliminated from Carabao Cup by the League Two team Crawley Town, losing 1-0. Offensively Norwich have been very efficient scoring 6 goals in 3 games, and Teemu Pukki have produced 83% of the goals. But again, with 8 conceded goals on 3 games can Daniel Farke and his team produce a better defense?
