Struggling West Ham welcome Newcastle

West Ham welcome Newcastle to London Stadium during the return of the Premier League only a month and a half after it last ended.

West Ham

The Hammers are set to start the season without having completed any major signings at all, in fact, the only notable thing West Ham have actually managed to do in the last couple of months is sell highly rated youngster Grady Diangana.

David Moyes is under intense pressure to perform during this fixture with the Home fans patience wearing very thin. Things get worse when glancing over their record against Newcastle seeing how the team from the capital only managed to snatch 1 point off of Saturdays visitors last season.

Optimism seems to have disappeared altogether from the West Ham camp which is understandable given their failures in the market but also due to the miserable, very fresh, memories they have from last seasons relegation scrap.

Moyes has his work cut out for him.


If West Ham are the miserable, pessimistic bunch, Newcastle are the direct opposite of them after a trio of top-class signings were announced earlier this week despite the failure of the Saudi take over.

Steve Bruce and co. finished at a respectable 13th place last season and will have high hopes of improving on that finish this year after splashing the cash for Callum Wilson, Ryan Frazer and Jamal Lewis.

Newcastle will have fond memories of facing West Ham, especially after last season when the Magpies managed to get away with 5 out of the possible 6 points up for grabs but the question is, can they repeat it and pile on the misery on this frail West Ham side?

Betting tip

These two have historically been involved in high scoring games and i do not believe that this one is any different which is why i will be backing Over 2.5 goals at 1.95 with Betway.
