Premier League Wrap

West Ham got the better of Norwich in a mid-table Premier League clash at Upton Park on Tuesday.

The Hammers prevailed through first-half goals from Mark Noble and Joey O'Brien, with the Canaries scoring a 90th minute consolation through Russell Martin.

Noble's opener came via a controversially awarded spot kick, as referee Mark Clattenburg penalised Elliott Bennett for holding down Winston Reid in the box.

The result leaves West Ham, with 26 points, a point above 12th-placed Norwich.

Meanwhile, Danny Graham's late effort rescued a point for Swansea City in a 2-2 draw with struggling Aston Villa at the Liberty Stadium.

Graham netted in stoppage time, soon after Christian Benteke converted an 84th minute penalty for the Villans, with Andreas Weimann cancelling out Wayne Routledge's ninth minute opener for the Swans.

The hosts twice struck the upright through Spanish striker Michu.

The stalemate nudged Swansea to eighth spot on the table with 29 points - 10 points ahead of 16th-placed Villa.

Earlier, Fulham claimed their second away victory of the season with a 2-1defeat of high-flying West Brom.

Alex Kacaniklic scored a 58th minute winner after Romelu Lukaku eclipsed Dimitar Berbatov's 39th minute opener at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies, lying seventh in the standings with 33 points, twice hit the post through Lukaku and Zoltan Gera.

Fulham are 13th on the table with 24 points.
