Newcastle vs West Ham: Predictions
Newcastle beat West Ham 2-0 away from home on the opening day of the season but since then, the two sides have trended in completely opposing directions. Despite winning 2-1 at Burnley last time out, the Magpies remain 17th in the table, six points clear of Fulham in the relegation zone, though they do have a game in hand on Scott Parker’s men.
West Ham, meanwhile, remain in the fourth and final Champions League spot, a point clear of London rivals Chelsea with just seven games to go. David Moyes’ men have lost just one of their last five Premier League games and have scored three goals in their last three outings. Given the Hammers were one of the favourites to go down this season, securing Champions League football would be an incredible achievement for Moyes, on par with how he led Everton into the top-four back in 2005.
