Newcastle vs West Ham preview
Earlier this week, Newcastle beat Southampton over two legs to advance to the Carabao Cup final. It will be the club’s first competitive final in more than two decades, but manager Eddie Howe will be hoping there are no lingering hangovers in this squad as this Premier League match against West Ham is undoubtedly a big one.
Third in the table, with the fewest goals conceded of any side in the league and having lost just one league match so far this season, Newcastle are soaring right now. But the positive atmosphere on Tyneside can’t hide the fact that Newcastle’s recent form is a little shaky. The side have only won one of their last four games, and in that period have scored just a single goal after playing out goalless draws against Leeds, Arsenal and Crystal Palace.
Howe will also be without one of his star men, Bruno Guimarães, as he starts a three-match suspension for a straight red card against Southampton. Summer signing Alexander Isak is also a doubt after picking up a suspected concussion against the Saints. The absence of these key players significantly weakens a Newcastle attack that was already seriously struggling to find the net.
Meanwhile, West Ham come into this game off the back of a vital victory against fellow relegation battlers Everton. The win saw the Hammers move out of the relegation spots, but the dark cloud of the drop zone still looms over the club. At least a comfortable FA Cup win over Derby County last week has further improved the mood in East London, but there’s no escaping the fact this season has been far from a success story so far.
After a serious summer splurge, West Ham were expected to compete in the top half of the table but right now they look more likely to be playing Championship football next season rather than competing in the Champions League. In more positive news, Danny Ings was signed from Aston Villa in January to help fire the team up the table and he could be in line for his first start in West Ham colors against Newcastle.
