West Ham earned a 2-2 draw against Norwich City this afternoon.

West Ham United rescued a point in the dying seconds against Norwich City as Cheikhou Kouyate's goal earned a 2-2 draw for Slaven Bilic's men.

The Hammers have famously been exceptional away from home this season, but struggled at home after two defeats in three games at Upton Park, and the poor home record almost continued today.

It looked like it was going to be the same old story for West Ham as Robbie Brady put Norwich in front in the first half, with the Canaries dreaming of a victory over the much-praised Hammers.

However, Diafra Sakho pulled West Ham level before half time, only for Nathan Redmond to fire Norwich back in front with only seven minutes to play.

The Upton Park crowd feared another home defeat. but midfielder Kouyate popped up in injury time to give Bilic a share of the spoils in a hard-fought encounter.

The result leaves West Ham in third place with 13 points, whilst Alex Neil's Norwich continue their solid start to the season, sitting in 13th place with nine points.
