Michail Antonio nets 4 to relegate Norwich and keep West Ham hopes alive!

From the Guardian:

The defeat that sealed Norwich’s relegation summed them up. They defended abysmally, conceded soft goals from set-pieces and lacked conviction in the final third. Daniel Farke’s lightweight outfit looked broken and beaten throughout and succeeded only in delivering a masterclass in how not to handle Michail Antonio, whose four goals helped West Ham take a big step towards preserving their EPL status with their first away win in nine matches.

“We are always self-critical,” Farke said. “You always have to ask yourself what you could have done better. It is not unexpected. The first day after promotion I said you have a 5% chance to stay in this league without spending money.

“I am sorry we were not able to work another miracle. No one expected us to win the title in the Championship. We were highly motivated to beat the odds. We can only apologise.”

Norwich has lost 24 games this season so far.

West Ham boss David Moyes saw his team keep their first clean sheet in 15 games. Moyes was delighted with a first clean sheet in 15 matches after his side rose six points clear of the bottom three with three games left, having played one more than 18th-placed Bournemouth.
