Newcastle United v West Ham United Match Predictions & Trends

Hammers travel north for tough first assignment

It’s hard to imagine anyone more excited to return to the stands than the Geordie faithful. They will be the 12th man that Steve Bruce’s side could have done with on so many occasions last season. Having secured the permanent signing of star loanee Joe Willock from Arsenal, Bruce will be confident of starting well at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

West Ham’s 6th place finish topped a fantastic season for David Moyes who will be looking to build and continue that success this year. The Hammers proved to be a robust side which could match anyone on their day, showing flair and resilience in abundance. If these traits continue, another successful campaign awaits the Irons.

A majority of West Ham Utd’s wins last season were with a 1-goal margin (12 wins), while 7 of their wins had a margin of 2 goals or more. In comparison, Newcastle United had as many 1-goal margin wins as wins with a margin of 2 goals or more (6 wins for each). The Magpies’ losses had a margin of 2 goals or more (12 defeats), while 5 of their defeats had a 1-goal margin. Most of West Ham Utd’s defeats had a 1-goal margin (7 defeats), while 4 of their losses had a margin of 2 goals or more.
