Newcastle United face-off with West Ham in this Premier League match. While Newcastle are in the bottom rung of the table, placed 17th in the table, West Ham occupy the 4th position with 16 wins already in their kitty. A win would propel West Ham to the 3rd position in the points table.
Fabian Schar, Jamaal Lascelles, Isaac Hayden and Ryan Fraser will be missing out on this game due to their respective injuries.
West Ham too have been plagued with a lot of injuries and uncertainties. Andriy Yarmolenko, Declan Rice and Darren Randolph will miss out on this game.
Newcastle United have been dismal in the tournament and therefore are languishing at the bottom of the table. However, they have found themselves in form off late and have picked up pace. They won their previous game against Burnley and looked in good shape in that game. Jacob Murphy and Saint-Maximin scored and made sure Newcastle win the game. They are also out of the relegation zone and this will be a huge positive for them.
West Ham, however, have been in superlative form in the Premier League, and a win in this game would shift them to the third position in the table and would solidify their chances of finishing in the top-four. West Ham are coming on the back off two victories against Leicester City and the Wolves and will be brimming with confidence. Jesse Lingard netted a brace in the previous game and he will be a very important member in the team.
