Newcastle United vs West Ham: prediction for the English Premier League match
Newcastle won 4 out of 5 previous games. Will the Hammers be able to collect points in the upcoming match? Our answer is in the prediction below.
For the first time in 24 years, Newcastle United have reached the final of a big tournament. They beat Southampton (3:1) in the League Cup semifinals and will face Manchester united in the final match on February 26.
In the Premier League, the Magpies currently are in 3rd place, which is the best result for them in 20 years. With 39 points to their name, they are one of the title contenders and strong candidates for European football. In the last Premier League game, Newcastle drew against Crystal Palace (0:0).
This weekend, the team will be without Targett, Krafth, Isak, Manquillo, and Guimaraes.
West Ham United
David Moyes must feel great after the clean-sheet victory over Everton (2:0). The three points helped West Ham to strengthen their standings and climb out of the relegation zone. Since October 9, the Hammers haven't won a single game against opponents who occupy a higher position in the table.
Currently, they are 16th on the log. West Ham have played 20 games in the Premier League and won only five of them. In total, they have 18 points and 17 goals to their name.
Ings, Zouma, Cornet, and Scamacca are all sidelined through injuries.

We will be backing the visiting team in this match. They have a good record against Newcastle and can deliver a good performance after the confidence-boosting win against Everton. The Hammers have many experienced players in the lineup and definitely can create problems for the Magpies.
Our prediction — Asian handicap (0) to West Ham
This probably won't be a high-scoring game - both sides are tired after the intense January schedule. Whoever scores first will try to maintain the advantage. Take the under.
Second bet — total under 2.5 goals
