Norwich City

John Ruddy Saved well from Kevin Nolan during the early stages and not much he could do for the goal. 7/10

Russell Martin Provided a bit of much needed calmness in a shaky first-half performance. 7

Martin Olsson Plenty of attacking intent from the Swede but he was caught out defensively on a number of occasions. 6

Jonathan Howson So unlucky to see his 25-yard effort cannon off the crossbar in the second half. Good performance. 7

Michael Turner Looked unusually uncomfortable but settled down in the second-half. 6

Ryan Bennett Willing to run at his opponents which was needed when others weren’t showing for the wall. Showed a good willingness to take responsibility. 7

Robert Snodgrass Very quiet in the first half but grew in the second when he decided to take on his full-back. Incredible free-kick. 8

Leroy Fer Failed to impress early on but improved as the game opened up. Good goal. 7

Gary Hooper Struggled in the first-half but his influence grew after the equaliser. Much better. 7

Anthony Pilkington Injury meant he was taken off after just 33 mins but he was on long enough to lose Morrison for his goal. 5

Jonathan Elmander Barely seen in the first half and not much more in the second. 4

Substitutes:

Bradley Johnson Only on for the last couple of minutes. 5

Nathan Redmond Came on after 33 minutess and added speed to a Norwich team that often had to play on the break. 7

West Ham United

Jussi Jaaskelainen Gave away the penalty for Hooper’s equaliser. 5

Guy Demel Solid performance from the 32-year-old but tired in the second-half. 6

Razvan Rat Was getting forward at will in the first half and provided a constant overlap for his winger. Forced on the back-foot in the second half but solid overall. 7

James Collins Looked a little weary as the match went on and struggled to contain Hooper as his influence grew in the game. 6

James Tomkins Good game unhinged by the fact that he should’ve done better for Norwich’s third. 6

Stewart Downing Was positive on the ball but needs Andy Carroll back if his game is to thrive for the hammers. 6

Mark Noble Neat and tidy in the middle of the park but can count himself lucky that Howson didn’t capitalise on his loss of possession in the second half. In a good vein of form. 7

Jack Collison Provided good energy in the first half but did little with the ball. Replaced with 15 minutes to go. 6

Kevin Nolan Looked dangerous throughout the match and set up the Hammers’ goal. Unlucky on a couple of efforts. Good all-round. 7

Ravel Morrison Was flying in the first half and capitalised on Norwich’s nerves to give his side the lead. Going from strength to strength this season. 8

Joe Cole Hasn’t played much football this season and it showed. Looked lacking in match fitness and contributed little in an attacking sense. 5

Substitutes:

Mohamed Diame Brought on for Joe Cole after 72 minutes and tested Ruddy with a deflected effort. Couldn’t turn the match around for his side. 5

Carlton Cole Replaced Collison instantly after Norwich’s second but the tall forward is still looking to regain match fitness. 5
