West Ham will look to recapture some sort of form as they return to Premier League action to face Norwich on Sunday.
The mood around the place took a turn for the worse in midweek, as a 1-0 second-leg defeat sealed a 3-1 loss on aggregate in their Europa League semi-final tie against Eintracht Frankfurt. That result spelt the end of a European dream, but also extended the Hammers' woeful form to four consecutive defeats in all competitions with just one victory in their last eight.
That should change this weekend however, as they face a Norwich side for whom things are even bleaker. With just one win in their previous 13 across all competitions, the Canaries have now been relegated and look to be seeing out their campaign with a very damp whimper.
Here's 90min's preview of this clash between two very out-of-form teams.

Norwich team news
Dean Smith has a fairly lengthy injury list to contend with so might not even rotate his squad all that much despite having the freedom to do so without consequence.
Kenny McLean and Josh Sargent have both been ruled out for the remainder of the season, while Adam Idah, Christoph Zimmerman, Ozan Kabak and Andrew Omobamidele are also likely absentees for Sunday's clash.
West Ham team news
David Moyes has only Angelo Ogbonna's absence to worry about. Despite having just seen his men play out a massively gruelling and draining trip to Germany on Thursday, he may well field a strong XI in order to get back on track as soon as possible.
Norwich vs West Ham prediction
With the Hammers in such dreadful form at the moment, it's tough to see them recovering from what was a heartbreaking Thursday night during the week.
That being said, it's important for them to restore some form in order for such a memorable campaign not to fizzle out in underwhelming fashion.
Coming up against a Norwich side that honestly look hopeless at this level, this weekend brings with it a great opportunity for West Ham to bounce back.
Prediction: Norwich 1-2 West Ham
