West Ham United vs Newcastle United Match Preview
Newcastle United’s strong record away from home against clubs outside the ‘big six’ means they are worth keeping on side for this trip to West Ham.
The Magpies have lost five matches on the road this season in the Premier League, all of them to teams in or around the top four and only once by more than a single-goal margin.
In other words, they are undefeated when visiting teams placed seventh or lower in the table – and that gives them every chance of returning north with at least one more point from this game.
Both of these sides have improved after poor starts to the campaign and in West Ham’s case that is especially true at home, which is why they are only a shade of odds-against here.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men will also take confidence from the fact they won 3-0 on Tyneside at the start of December when Javier Hernandez scored a double.
However, Newcastle’s defensive solidity away from home this term is on a par with any team in the league apart from Liverpool and Manchester City, and there is no reason to think the Hammers will find it easier than anyone else to break them down.
