Reason for West Ham vs Newcastle Predictions
West Ham and Newcastle meet at the Olympic Stadium for this Premiership encounter. The home team is in the fifth position with 41 points while the visitors are in 17th position with 21 points. West Ham is just two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United. The race for the top four is highly competitive, with just six points separating the team in the seventh position from the team in the fourth spot. West Ham knows that a victory could see them back into the Champions League spots. They are unbeaten in their last two league games, which is a welcome return to form as they had lost their two matches preceding this. Declan Rice has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jarrod Bowen is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Angelo Ogbonna (rupture of cruciate ligaments) will be off the field for a long time.
In their previous match, Newcastle United met Aston Villa on Sunday, and it finished in a slender 1:0 win at home. The outfit is currently on a streak of three consecutive victories and has not suffered a single loss in its last four games. Playing on the home ground had no considerable impact in Newcastle United’s previous ten meetings, as the hosts recorded five wins while the guests triumphed on three occasions. The squad was held to a draw in only two of their previous ten clashes. One of their most recent five encounters produced more than 2.5 goals, with two seeing both of the clubs netting goals. Within this time frame, The Irons were successful in keeping two clean sheets and failed to score in just one case. The team’s last five outings produced a relatively low amount of goals with 1.8. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Allan Saint-Maximin plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. He deserves to play in a better team. Isaac Hayden (Knee Surgery) and Kieran Trippier (Metatarsal Fracture) miss out here.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Newcastle is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe West Ham should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match
