Newcastle vs West Ham Prediction: PL | 04.02.2023 – 22bet
It has already been a memorable week on Tyneside for Newcastle United, as they booked their first visit to Wembley since 1999 with EFL Cup success over Southampton. However, the attention turns back to their Champions League push on Saturday, as they host West Ham United.
Premier League Preview
There is certainly a feeling that Newcastle is currently a club where everybody involved is pulling in the right direction. Eddie Howe’s team booked a first visit to Wembley since 1999 in midweek, and they will aim to win a first major honour since 1955 in February. However, a Champions League push can’t be forgotten about, as the club needs to maintain their strong charge.
The Magpies currently sit third in the Premier League standings, and have lost just once in 20 league fixtures this term. Newcastle has been in excellent form since the restart, as they have gone six without defeat, winning three times over that period. However, they will need to respond in the league, as they were held to a 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace in their previous fixture.
It is a different story at the London Stadium for West Ham United this term, as they still find themselves in the midst of a relegation battle. The Hammers are just a point outside the bottom three places in the league, and have lost the second-most number of games in the English top-flight this term.
However, a welcome return to winning ways arrived in their most recent league fixture, as they landed a 2-0 win at the London Stadium against Everton. Jarrod Bowen scored both goals in that success, and the winger has now netted three in his previous two in all competitions.
Newcastle vs West Ham Head to Head
Newcastle has scored in each of the previous six meetings against West Ham. Over that period, they have picked up three wins and have suffered just a single defeat. That loss was suffered last term, as West Ham picked up a 4-2 win at St James’ Park. However, the Hammers haven’t won successive away games against Newcastle since October 1998.
Newcastle vs West Ham Prediction
There will be another lively atmosphere at St James’ Park this weekend, as Newcastle look to record an eleventh win of the campaign. In truth, we find it hard to see any other outcome than a win for the Magpies, and we could see them keeping another clean sheet.
