Premier League Preview: Norwich City - West Ham

The center back misses his side's trip to Carrow Road with an ankle injury, while Chris Hughton's men are looking to end their four-game run without a win.

West Ham will be without Winston Reid for the club's fixture against Norwich City on Saturday.

The 25-year-old center back, who was named as West Ham's player of the year last season, suffered an ankle injury in training and has been ruled out of the trip to Carrow Road as well as New Zealand's World Cup playoff matches against Mexico.

With both sides struggling for form, West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is under no illusions as to the importance of the clash.

"Norwich is a six-pointer already," he said. "They played well in their last home game against Cardiff (a 0-0 draw) and we have to make sure we frustrate them in that area and be clinical when we get our chances.

"It's not very good injury-wise at the moment other than we've got James Collins back in training. Winston Reid (ankle) picked up an unfortunate one this week which adds to the list"

Andy Carroll (heel), Ricardo Vaz Te (shoulder), Alou Diarra (knee) and George McCartney (knee) are also sidelined for West Ham.

Norwich will be looking to bounce back with a positive result against West Ham following a 7-0 hammering at the hands of Manchester City last Saturday.

Chris Hughton's men have gone four games without a victory, while West Ham has not won in three matches since beating Tottenham on Oct. 6.

Norwich welcomes back Robert Snodgrass (concussion), but is set to be without Ricky van Wolfswinkel (toe) in addition to Elliott Bennett (knee) and Alexander Tettey (ankle).

Nathan Redmond (hip) faces a late fitness test, and Hughton hopes his charges can put last week's performance behind them.

"Any negatives are in the past. We have faith in the ability that we have. The value of winning a couple of games is huge," said the 54-year-old.
