After suffering their 24th defeat of the season, losing 4-0 at home to West Ham on Saturday afternoon, Norwich have been relegated from the Premier League.
According to Goal.com, Norwich needed to avoid a loss against the Hammers at Carrow Road to keep their slim hopes of survival alive.
There were mixed feeling from the manager of Norwich Daniel Farke before the match was played.
While speaking to reporters, Farke said, “Even if we win the last four games, I would say with at least a 99 per cent guarantee it would not be enough to stay in this league.”
Meanwhile, his prediction manifested, as Norwich got off to the worst possible start when Michail Antonio turned the ball into the net for the visitors following a Jarrod Bowen corner with just 11 minutes on the clock.
Farke then watched his side concede from another set-piece right on half-time, as Antonio latched onto Mark Noble’s expert delivery to divert a header past Tim Krul and into the far corner of the net.
West Ham, moved six points clear of the relegation places after
Antonio completed his hat-trick early in the second half before adding a fourth to round off a comfortable 4-0 victory.
