Newcastle United will travel to the London Stadium this weekend, as it takes on hosts West Ham in what promises to be an engaging match in the ongoing English Premier League 2021-22 season.
Newcastle has shown some exceptional form of late, winning 3 back to back matches against Leeds, Watford, and most recently against Aston Villa. In fact, the team has not lost a Premier League game since mid-December, when it suffered a 4-0 loss against Champions Manchester City. This means Newcastle has picked up at least one point in each of its last 5 Premier League outings. This turn in form has come at the right time for the visitors, helping them creep out of the relegation zone and sit on the 17th spot, 4 points clear of Norwich City.
The team's confidence has been buoyed by its recent signings, including Matt Targett, Dan Burn, Chris Wood, and Kieran Trippier. Coach Eddie Howe will now be focused on collecting as many points as he can from his upcoming games, as he looks to prove his worth to the new owners of the team.
West Ham United, which sat in the top 4 for quite some time, has now gradually slipped to the 5th spot. While they still lead Arsenal, Wolverhampton and Tottenham by 2, 4 and 5 points respectively, each of these teams have played fewer matches than the London club. The team could have been in a worse spot had it not been for a stunning equalizer from Dawson in the 91st minute of its previous game against Leicester City, which helped them pick up a crucial point.
David Moyes has a lot of work ahead of him if he would like to get a European finish, let alone a Champions League berth.
Match prediction and betting tips for West Ham United F. C. vs Newcastle United F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the London Stadium, London, on 19th February 2022.
Newcastle has one of the worst away records for a team in this season, having managed to score just 6 points from the 10 games on the road. With two back-to-back away games against West Ham and Brentford, this is Newcastle’s chance to turn a new leaf and put up a better show. The team is expected to play a 3-5-2 formation, with Wood and Allan Saint likely to lead the attack. Jamaal Lascelles and Targett are likely to hold fort at the back. Trippier, Javier Manquillo, Isaac Hayden, Federico Fernandez, and Callum Wilson will likely sit out this game due to injuries.
The hosts will be without the services of Angelo Ogbonna and Arthur Masuaku, who are injured but will be happy to welcome back Kurt Zouma. Said Benrahma is knocking on the doors for a start and should give a tough competition to claim the spot from Lanzini and Fornals.
This should turn out to be an engaging watch, as the on-paper strength of West Ham clashes with the on-field confidence of Newcastle. We expect both the team to score, with neither managing to gain a winning lead at the full-time whistle.
Bet on a draw.
West Ham has a perfect record of scoring at home this season and Newcastle has certainly beefed up its attacking prowess with some exciting signings. We think the chance that this match is a goal-filled one where both teams get on the board is quite high.
