Newcastle United vs West Ham United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Newcastle United picked up a third consecutive league victory – and the first away win of the campaign – after a 2-1 success over Burnley at Turf Moor. Newcastle scored in the fourth minute when a shot took a wicked deflection off Bee Mee. Ciaran Clark’s header from a set-piece doubled the advantage in the 23rd minute. Even though Sam Vokes pulled one back for Burnley just before the break, Newcastle held on for a win. West Ham were thrashed yet again by Manchester City, who picked up a 4-0 win at the London Stadium. David Silva and Raheem Sterling provided two quick goals for City before Leroy Sane made it a rout with his brace.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle are swimming through a sea of confidence at this moment, but they have also enjoyed some lucky breaks in the recent matches. West Ham have lost quite badly in a couple of matches as the team’s defensive performance remains a source of concern from the start of the campaign. Yet, West Ham have quality players like Felipe Anderson and Arnautovic, who can break Newcastle’s defence with ease. A good choice would be to pick a draw.

West Ham have been unable to register any clean sheet in the Premier League since the goalless draw with Chelsea when the team pretty much played with 11 men behind the ball. Newcastle may not have a strong offence but their confidence levels are good enough to expect at least a goal. A great option is to choose both teams to score.

Newcastle United Preview

Rafa Benitez has been able to get his team well clear of the drop zone following an incredible streak of results. Even though Newcastle have not been outstanding in the three games, they have been able to make the most of good fortune. The Magpies are unbeaten in four matches and the poor start to the campaign will certainly be at the back of players’ minds. This run is also crucial to put Newcastle in a strong position ahead of games against the likes of West Ham, Huddersfield Town, and Fulham.

Newcastle United Team News

Jamaal Lascelles (shoulder), Yoshinori Muto (calf), Karl Darlow, Paul Dummett (hamstring), Jamie Sterry (groin), and Florian Lejeune (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for Newcastle.

West Ham United Preview

The Hammers may not give excessive importance into the thumping from Manchester City as Manuel Pellegrini will look to take more points against teams around them in the table. West Ham are still not far off from the top 10 places. However, the club continue to remain defensively poor and it is a major headache for the manager. West Ham have conceded a whopping 22 goals in 13 matches but they have also not been finding the back of the net at the same pace. Marko Arnautovic leads the scoring charts at the club with five league goals.

West Ham United Team News

Marko Arnautovic (knock) is a doubt for the game. Manuel Lanzini (cruciate ligament), Winston Reid (collateral ligament), Ryan Fredericks (shin), Carlos Sanchez (collateral ligament), and Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles tendon) are the players unavailable for West Ham.
