Norwich City’s stay in the Premier League is over, as an incredible four goals from Michail Antonio confirmed their immediate return to the Championship.

The Canaries have been hanging on in recent weeks, but a ruthless display from the Hammers secured four goals for Antonio and three vital points for David Moyes’ side.

West Ham were at right from the go in this one, as Antonio put them in front after just 10 minutes.

A blunted Norwich side were unable to muster any response to their confident visitors, as Tomas Soucek and Jarrod Bowen both tested Tim Krul.

Antonio was to be the key man again just before the break, as the makeshift forward got across his man to nod home Mark Noble’s free kick.

Despite staring relegation in the face, Norwich were lifeless after the break, as Antonio continued his one-man battle with the Canaries defence.

He completed his hat trick on 54 minutes, heading home as Krul parried his own shot back to him, before saving his best for last.

Ryan Fredericks burst in behind a tired Norwich defence and Antonio was again too much for his marker as he netted the cheekiest of cheeky flicks.
