LONDON (AP) West Ham beat Norwich 2-1 at Upton Park on Tuesday, handing the Canaries their fourth consecutive Premier League defeat.

The home side relied on first-half goals from Mark Noble and Joey O'Brien to secure the victory. Russell Martin scored a late consolation for Norwich.

Noble opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the third minute after referee Mark Clattenburg awarded West Ham a soft penalty when Ryan Bennett held on to Winston Reid.

In the 26th Noble became the architect, wriggling his way into the Norwich box. His cross was cleared, but fell to O'Brien who smashed the ball into the net.

Martin scored on a volley in the 90th but West Ham held on for the win.

The win moves West Ham ahead of Norwich into 11th place in the standings with 26 points. Norwich drops to 12th, one point behind.
