If you’d told a West Ham fan prior to the start of the season that at this point in the campaign they’d be challenging for the coveted Champions League spots, they’d scarcely have believed you. Yet, the mood around the club has turned slightly frosty in recent weeks after a string of disappointing results.
The passionate Hammers fanbase are by no means starting to turn on the players or manager David Moyes, but the atmosphere around the London Stadium is a little nervous right now. After only a single win in their last four games, West Ham could really do with taking three points here to get their European challenge back on track.
The good news for Moyes is that he has more or less a full squad to choose from this weekend. Angelo Ogbonna is a long-term absentee and Arthur Masuaku is a doubt, but otherwise West Ham look particularly strong on paper. Expect the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio to fancy their chances against a Newcastle defence that have conceded the third-most goals in the league.
However, Newcastle no longer look like the team that lost 2-4 when these sides met at St James’ Park on the opening day of the season. After a slow start to the Eddie Howe era, the side looks transformed with fresh confidence and a glut of new January signings adding some much-needed quality.
The Magpies are unbeaten in five EPL games, and have won each of their last three matches. However, things aren’t running entirely smoothly up in the North East. The club confirmed this week that right back Kieran Trippier suffered a foot fracture last weekend against Aston Villa and will be out for the foreseeable future. His absence will be significant; he’s quickly become a real leader at the club, both on and off the pitch. In a further blow, Allan Saint-Maximin, one of their few decent players in the first half of the season, has also been ruled out of this game.
This rejuvenated Newcastle side have been in good form recently, but those injuries and the quality of the opposition would suggest they are unlikely to come away from East London with any of the spoils.
Here's how they line up:
West Ham: Fabianski, Fredericks, Zouma, Dawson, Cresswell, Rice, Soucek, Fornals, Benrahma, Bowen, Antonio.
Newcastle: Dubravka, Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett, Willock, Shelvey, Joelinton, Murphy, Fraser, Wood.
