West Ham vs Newcastle Prediction & Betting tips
The Saturday night match in the Premier League this week between West Ham United and Newcastle United. With only one win in the last seven games, West Ham United is motivated to keep the three points at the London Stadium.
West Ham United:
The bottom left of the left row in the Premier League is West Ham United. Given the player material that The Hammers have at our disposal, we can at least expect West Ham United to finish the season in the left-hand row. With only four points behind at Wolverhampton and Watford, West Ham United is still in the race for seventh place and that battle must not give up The Hammers. The last games are very disappointing with the results of West Ham United and with every other result than a victory on Saturday-evening, West Ham United will end the weekend in the right-hand row. The advantage over Leicester City, which plays at Watford on Sunday afternoon, is only one point after all.
West Ham United only won one of the last seven matches. That victory came about last Friday when Fulham was the opponent at the London Stadium. The Hammers won 3-1 of the relegation candidate. Last Wednesday, West Ham United was again allowed to play in the Premier League. This time, the away match at national champion Manchester City was on the program and The Hammers narrowly lost at Etihad Stadium: 1-0. The fact that West Ham United lost only 1-0 to Manchester City had more to do with Manchester City than with West Ham United itself. The Hammers have not won their last eighteen away games against the Big Six – the six top clubs in the Premier League.
Newcastle United has only five points less than West Ham United and that is incredibly good. On paper, West Ham United has a much better selection than Newcastle United, but as a team Rafael Benítez’s team is doing just fine. Last season the Spanish coach also performed above expectations with Newcastle United and the 58-year old Newcastle United manager can certainly send you a message. Just like last season, Benítez will also ensure that Newcastle United will continue this season and with that the Spaniard has accomplished his mission. The supporters of Newcastle United always hope that their team can compete for a place in the left row but this season Newcastle United clearly does not have the team for that.
Like all other Premier League-teams, Newcastle United midweeks also came into action. On Tuesday-evening, well-performing Burnley visited Newcastle United and the game at St. James’ Park ended in a 2-0 win for The Magpies. Especially the 1-0 of Fabian Schär was there. Against Burnley, Newcastle United recorded its fourth home win in a row in the Premier League, while The Magpies won only two wins in the eleven games before. Moreover, in 2019 Newcastle United is the best home team of the Premier League with twelve points from five games. At St. James’ Park only 0-2 was lost from Manchester United early January, but that is of course no disaster. In away games Newcastle United makes it significantly less: The Magpies have not won their last five eliminations in the Premier League.
