Newcastle United and West Ham United will face each other in the Premier League this weekend. The match will be held at St. James’ Park on Saturday and is slated to kick off at 12:30pm UK time

Newcastle United

Newcastle United are not out of the woods yet, but recent results have been very encouraging. The Magpies got the better of Burnley 2-1 away from home at Turf Moor in the Premier League last weekend, and it followed a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at St. James’ Park in the league.

Steve Bruce’s side are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 32 points from 31 matches. Newcastle are as many as six points above third-from-bottom Fulham, who have played 32 games.

Team News:

Callum Wilson came on as a substitute against Burnley after recovering from his injury and is likely to start against West Ham. Allan Saint-Maximin should also start.

West Ham United

West Ham United are having a truly wonderful season and could be playing Champions League football in 2021-22. The Hammers are fourth in the Premier League table at the moment with 55 points from 31 matches, a point ahead of London rivals and fifth-placed Chelsea and three clear of defending champions and sixth-placed Liverpool.

David Moyes’s side will head into the match against Newcastle on the back of a 3-2 victory over Leicester City at London Stadium in the league. It followed a 3-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home in the league.

Team News:

Declan Rice is injured and so is Michail Antonio. Jesse Lingard, on loan from Manchester United, will start again.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Newcastle United have scored 32 goals in 31 Premier League games.
  • West Ham United have scored 51 goals in 31 Premier League games.
  • Newcastle United have conceded 51 goals in 31 Premier League matches.
