This match will be played on 30/03/2024 at 20:30

Newcastle United will look to recover from the FA Cup loss to Man City when they take on West Ham United in the Premier League round 30. The Magpies are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting in 10th place in the standings, but they are surely capable of matching the Hammers at their St. James’ Park. Fit-again Anthony Gordon, who made his England debut in a 1-0 loss to Brazil, should keep his place in the starting XI, while Kieran Trippier is a major doubt.

Fellow midfielder Harvey Barnes should be fit for Saturday’s clash. The capital club, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous four league matches. Edson Alvarez is banned for the match. while Jarrod Bowen is back from the international duty. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards at St. James’ Park as Newcastle are tough to beat at home.

Outright Betting

Despite winning just one of their last five Premier League home games, Newcastle are odds-on 5/6 favourites with AUGBET.

The reverse fixture ended all square and another stalemate on Saturday can be backed at 16/5 while a West Ham victory is as big as 14/5.

Betting Angles

Newcastle are far too skinny for my liking on Saturday so I’ll instead opt for a Bet Builder and bundle up both Bruno Guimarães and Tomáš Souček to commit a foul at 5/6.

Newcastle’s all-action Brazilian is a fierce midfield competitor and that is evidenced by the fact that he has clocked up nine yellow cards across his 27 Premier League appearances this season so far.

That has coincided with Guimarães averaging 1.3 fouls per-game in the top-flight this term and I suspect that trend will continue here given the pace and flair that West Ham carry in forward areas.

With Edson Álvarez suspended for the visitors. Tomáš Souček is likely to drop back and be operating in the same part of the midfield battleground as the aforementioned Bruno Guimarães.

The marauding Czech midfielder averages just over one foul per 90 in the Premier League this season. racking up a combined total of four misdemeanours across his last two outings.

Recent Meetings

Newcastle vs West Ham Prediction

West Ham enter this on a better form but the numbers go in Newcastle’s favour and by quite some distance. Despite a generally underwhelming campaign in this term of the. Premier League, the Magpies are still a force at St. James’ Park. They won 9, drew 2, and lost 3 of 14 league outings in front of the home fans so far in the season.

They own a dominant home record in the history of the clashes against the Hammers. Newcastle also looked great in their previous home match, beating Wolves 3-0 at the start of the month. West Ham, on the other side, lost six of the last nine away fixtures across competitions. You can back the home win pick at the 1.80 odds.

This match has goals in it. We’ve seen three or more goals in each of Newcastle’s last seven home outings in all competitions. West Ham kept only one clean sheet in the previous ten away games across competitions.

In these circumstances, we like the look of the 2.20 odds offered for the highest-scoring. Magpie Alexander Isak to score anytime on Saturday. The Swedish forward has 12 goals to his name in this term of the Premier League. He takes penalties and he will start on Saturday as Callum Wilson is still sidelined through injury.
