CORK TEENAGER ADAM Idah came off the bench to make his Premier League debut as Norwich City were held 1-1 at home to Crystal Palace.

Idah, who turns 19 in February, was introduced for the final moments as a stoppage-time substitute for Alexander Tettey.

Norwich took an early lead through Todd Cantwell but were pegged back five minutes from time when Connor Wickham struck an equaliser for the visitors.

Elsewhere, struggling West Ham made a flying start to David Moyes’ second stint as manager, hammering hapless Bournemouth 4-0 and lifting themselves out of the relegation zone, with the visitors now in the bottom three.

Mark Noble scored either side of a Sebastien Haller effort and Felipe Anderson bagged the fourth midway through the second half to complete the rout.

“The players were magnificent from the start, they bought into the idea to get the supporters back onside and they did,” Moyes told the BBC.
