Snodgrass and Redmond in line for Norwich return

Needing a boost after a 7-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City, Canaries boss Chris Hughton is set to welcome back two key midfielders for the meeting with West Ham

Norwich City hope to have Robert Snodgrass and Nathan Redmond back from injury for their home game against West Ham.

The news comes as a welcome boost after Chris Hughton's men suffered a humiliating 7-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

22/1 Norwich are 22/1 with Bet365 to beat West Ham 3-1
Snodgrass was unavailable for that fixture after suffering concussion in the midweek Capital One Cup loss at Manchester United, while Redmond has been absent with a hip injury.

Asked about the Scot's absence at the Etihad Stadium, Hughton told reporters: "After his concussion, the only way that he is allowed to be available is if there's no effects.

"It was only slight effects that he had but you have to be clear 100 per cent and he wasn't."

The Canaries manager is certain, however, that the former Leeds winger will be able to face West Ham, and is hopeful of also having Redmond at his disposal.

"Redmond was too sore [to play on Saturday]," he explained. "Snodgrass, of course, will be available for next week and we'll push Nathan as well and see if we can get him back for next week."
