Newcastle United vs West Ham United Match Prediction

By Dean Carr

Newcastle United host West Ham United at St. James’ Park on 26/08/17 in a game where both teams will be looking to end their losing starts to the season. Newcastle were beaten 1-0 at Huddersfield last Sunday, while West Ham were dealt a late blow in their 3-2 defeat at Southampton. Read on for a full match preview complete with betting tips and predictions.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Newcastle still have the look of a Championship side, having failed to really add any significant additions to the squad over the summer. West Ham, though, looked far brighter during their clash with Southampton and I’m expecting them to get a result this time out.

 

West Ham double chance - 8/13

Javier Hernandez to score anytime - 8/5

Newcastle United saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

West Ham United saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Newcastle United Preview

Those who weren’t worried about the potential of Newcastle being relegated this season may want to rethink their position, as they looked extremely off the pace during their 1-0 loss at Huddersfield last time out. Having finished thirteen points clear of the Terriers last season, there was a gulf in class between the two sides in the Championship but that seems to have since been reversed. Aaron Mooy scored the game’s only goal, exchanging passes with Elliot Kachunga before bending the ball inside the far post. Rafa Benitez has cut an unhappy figure seemingly since the club won promotion from the Championship - an unfamiliar trait for a manager who has just guided his team to the top flight. He himself has admitted this squad has too many Championship-level players and scoring no goals in their opening two games - although a small sample size - appears to prove his point. Newcastle won 16 of their 23 home games last term en route to promotion and the support of 50,000 fanatic Geordies behind them will be one of the key factors behind their hopes of staying in the Premier League.

Newcastle United Team News

Jonjo Shelvey is still suspended following his red card against Tottenham. In defence, Rafa Benitez still has some concerns with DeAndre Yedlin (hamstring), Florian Lejeune (ankle) and Paul Dummett (hamstring) all ruled out.

West Ham United Preview

Sloppy defending proved to be the order of the day from West Ham last weekend, as their inability to defend coherently proved to be their achilles heel once again. Jose Fonte had a nightmare return to St. Mary’s, first letting Manolo Gabbiadini escape his attentions with a perfectly-timed run to make it 1-0, before giving away a penalty which Dusan Tadic just about converted. However, the one positive for the Hammers on the day was forward Javier Hernandez, who popped up with two poacher’s goals to drag his team level, only for Pablo Zabaleta to give away a 90th minute penalty, allowing Charlie Austin to win the game for the Saints. Going down to ten men certainly didn’t help their cause either, with Marko Arnautovic seeing red at 1-0, but starting the season with three games away from home was never going to be easy, especially with Manchester United up first. For as much as West Ham look in a precarious position, they still have key players to come back from injury, such as Winston Reid, Manuel Lanzini and Andy Carroll and will be targeting a positive result from this fixture, with Newcastle looking worse off than themselves.

West Ham United Team News

Marko Arnautovic misses out through suspension and Winston Reid (calf) is ruled out. Manuel Lanzini (knee) is missing, while a decision on Andy Carroll (groin) will be made on Friday.
