Ravel Morrison gave the Hammers a first-half lead with his fifth goal of the season, which was cancelled out by Gary Hooper's equaliser 10 minutes after the break.

But Snodgrass fired home a free-kick midway through the second period before Leroy Fer struck in injury-time as Norwich claimed the three points at Carrow Road.

Snodgrass was pleased with how he and his team-mates bounced back from last weekend's 7-0 defeat against Manchester City.

He told Sky Sports 1: "After the 7-0 defeat to Man City last weekend it just showed the character of these players and everything about us...fantastic club, fantastic fans and a fantastic spirit, and we needed that result.

"In the first half we didn't get going and we changed our shape and went to two up front.

"West Ham knocked the ball about really well and it was hard to get near them at times.

"We had a few feisty words at half-time and we needed to relax and take it as every other game, and I think we rolled our sleeves up and we deserved the victory."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
