West Ham held firm to secure a dour 0-0 draw at Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday and maintain the team's impressive return to England's top flight.

Norwich had the better of the chances in a scrappy match at Carrow Road but couldn't find a way past a visiting defense that has kept three clean sheets in its first four games this campaign.

Substitute Harry Kane squandered the best chance of the match for the hosts in injury time, shooting weakly at West Ham goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen after a counterattack to leave Norwich without a victory. This was its third draw in a row, having opened up with a 5-0 thrashing at Fulham.

West Ham, which was without on-loan striker Andy Carroll because of injury, has seven points.
