West Ham’s push for a top-four spot continues with a trip to St James’ Park tomorrow afternoon. They will be facing a Newcastle side who won 2-1 away at Burnley last time out so the Hammers will need to be on their toes.
Manager David Moyes has doubts over the fitness of eight players heading into the match. Angelo Ogbonna (ankle), Manuel Lanzini (knock), Andriy Yarmolenko (knee) and Darren Randolph (hip) are touch and go, while Declan Rice (knee), Aaron Cresswell (hamstring), Mark Noble (elbow) and Michail Antonio (thigh) are all ruled out.
West Ham’s Predicted XI To Face Newcastle:
Fabianski, Coufal, Dawson, Diop, Balbuena, Masuaku, Soucek, Fornals, Benrahma, Bowen, Lingard
Magpies boss Steve Bruce will be without Ryan Fraser (groin), Fabian Schar (knee), Jamaal Lascelles (foot) and Isaac Hayden (knee) for the game this weekend.
Newcastle’s Predicted XI:
Dubravka, Murphy, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie, Almiron, Shelvey, Sean Longstaff, Saint-Maximin, Wilson
The bookies have West Ham as the favourites with Betfair pricing them at 11/10 for the win. A draw is 5/2 with William Hill while a victory for the Magpies is 14/1 at Unibet.
Predicted Score – 1-1
