Here we have with us the West Ham United Player Ratings for their commanding win against Norwich. The Hammers hammered down the Canaries 2-0 at the London Stadium in their Premier League clash on Thursday.
While the Irons were expected to completely dominate the game, the Canaries surely did not make the game easy for their opponents. Dean Smith’s side came close multiple times but were shut out by the heroics of West Ham goal keeper Lukasz Fabianski.
The deadlock was broken just a few minutes before half time by Jarrod Bowen. The Englishman scored a perfect header via a cross from Vladimir Coufal. Norwich failed to make a comeback as Bowen netted another goal in the 83rd minute delivered by Arthur Masuaku.
