Norwich City returned to Premier League action with a 2-0 loss at West Ham this afternoon and our reporters were there to bring you all the updates, analysis and post-match reaction.

The Canaries put in a good effort but were beaten 3-2 by Chelsea in a hard fought encounter at Carrow Road last weekend, as their bright start to life in the top flight continued.

However, 11 changes were made for a disappointing 1-0 loss at League Two side Crawley Town in the League Cup second round on Tuesday evening, with Timm Klose picking up a potentially season-ending knee injury.

Grant Hanley has also picked up a groin injury in training, leaving Daniel Farke's centre-back option depleted for this afternoon's game at the London Stadium (3pm kick-off).

The Hammers lost their opener at home to Manchester City 5-0 before drawing 1-1 at Brighton and winning 3-1 at Watford in the league, with £45m record signing Sebastien Haller scoring twice.

Manuel Pellegrini's team did manage to beat League Two opposition on Tuesday, winning 2-0 at Newport County despite making 10 changes to their starting XI.
