Things are finally starting to look up for West Ham and manager David Moyes after getting back-to-back wins against Everton and Derby.
However, a trip to Newcastle on Saturday evening will be a stern test for the Hammers. The Magpies have not lost at St James’ Park this season, having won six and drawn four of their ten home matches.
In terms of team news, West Ham have four injury concerns with Kurt Zouma (thigh), Gianluca Scamacca (knee), Maxwel Cornet (calf) and Danny Ings (knee) all unavailable.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Newcastle:
Fabianski, Coufal, Kehrer, Ogbonna, Aguerd, Emerson, Paqueta, Rice, Bowen, Antonio, Benrahma
Magpies boss Eddie Howe is not sure that Alexander Isak will be able to play due to concussion protocols, while Javier Manquillo (knock), Emil Krafth (knee) and Matt Targett (foot) are all ruled out. Bruno Guimaraes won’t play due to suspension.
Newcastle’s Predicted XI:
Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Joelinton, Longstaff, Willock, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
The bookies have made the home side the favourites, with Coral pricing them at 8/13 for the win. A draw is 14/5 with Betway while a victory for the Hammers is 11/2 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 0-0
