Charlie Nicholas returns with his latest round of Premier League predictions
Charlie Nicholas is back with his Premier League predictions for a full round of action this coming weekend.
Norwich vs West Ham, Saturday – 12:30pm
I am sure West Ham will have been disappointed with the result against Burnley. A VAR decision went against them again, but Jay Rodriguez took his goal brilliantly.
Michail Antonio missed chances, but West Ham are creating chances. That is the difference. They are starting to do that, whereby if they put one or two away then they will win even more games. The players are now content with what David Moyes is asking them, and Sebastian Haller all of a sudden knows he is fighting for his place and needs to get his finger out.
Michail Antonio turned home from close range to give West Ham the lead against Chelsea
Manuel Lanzini is back, while Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice are playing well, as does Mark Noble when he comes in. They do still play with too much of a risk at the back but these things all mean Moyes is not sitting back anymore. They must go and put personality into the game.
Brighton had Norwich last week, and if you score first against them they will be ready to accept the consequences. It could happen again in this match. Norwich will give another burst but West Ham will be ready for it.
West Ham, Watford and Brighton will have all pin-pointed this game as one where they must pick up three points, and both Watford and Brighton have done just that. It will be the case for West Ham too and I think they will get through it fairly well.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 0-2 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
