West Ham United scored four goals in a Premier League 2 Division 2 match for the ninth time this season as they beat Norwich City 4-0 to maintain a three-point lead at the top of the table.

West Ham are three points above second-placed Manchester United, who have a match in hand and kept up the pressure by winning 3-2 at Stoke City. 

The Hammers have four matches left, and whoever wins the Division 2 title will secure promotion to Division 1. 

Norwich drop to 11th with 17 points.
