Newcastle United vs West Ham United
KICK OFF: Saturday 1st December 2018 | 16:00 CET
PREMIER LEAGUE: Matchday 14 | St. James’ Park, Newcastle
Will West Ham United Finally End their Newcastle Hoodoo and Win at St James for the first time Since 2012?
Both teams are hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone, each one knowing that a win will give them some breathing space going into the busy December fixture list. Newcastle have won the last three meetings in the Premier League, and West Ham have not won at St James’ Park since 2012.
Newcastle will hope to have both Jonjo Shelvey and Jamaal Lascelles back to full fitness, but defender Paul Dummett is a huge doubt.
The Hammers welcomed Andy Carrol back to the matchday squad and will be hoping to get him some game time against Newcastle. Jack Wilshere is also pushing to be fit for the match and depending on the fitness of Arnautovic, could be a vital addition to the team.
My prediction is a home win, Newcastle have the better form of late, and with a fitter, more complete squad should have too much for the Hammers.
Result Prediction: Newcastle Win
Score Prediction: 2-1 or over 2 goals
