Norwich City were soundly beaten by West Ham at Carrow Road, goals from Said Benrahma, Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini condemning Dean Smith's side to a 4-0 defeat.
After a promising start for the Canaries, David Moyes' side began to dominate, Benrahma's deflected effort wrong-footing City 'keeper Tim Krul for the opener.
18 minutes later their lead was doubled. Jarrod Bowen had acres on the edge of the Norwich box, slipping Antonio in on goal. Krul failed to deal with the ball when he had the chance, and the striker rolled into an empty net.
Benrahma made it 3-0 on the brink of half-time when he smashed home Jarrod Bowen's cross, before Sam Byram had a goal disallowed for hand ball the other side of the break.
Robert Jones then gave a penalty via VAR for Jacob Sorensen's handball, and Lanzini stepped up to send Krul the wrong way.

26 - Gilmour's volley strikes the arm of Dawson, but it comes off his thigh first and nothing is given.
30 - GOAL WEST HAM (Antonio): West Ham easily find Bowen on the edge of the area, he slips Antonio in and when Krul fails to claim the Hammers striker has an empty net to tap into.
