      Newcastle vs West Ham Predictions

      Newcastle’s incredible 3-3 draw with Manchester United on Tuesday threw the season guidebook for both these sides out of the window. Both teams had previously struggled enormously to find the back of the net.

      However, I imagine that this good attacking display was simply an anomaly, and that normal service will be resume in this game.

      Newcastle have failed to score in four of their last five games and have only picked up one point from a possible 15 during this period. Each one of their four defeats ended 1-0 to the opposition.

      This terrible form leaves them right in the mixer for relegation from the Premier League. They are in 19th position with just 18 points from their first 21 league matches. They are only one point off 17th placed Swansea though.

      West Ham find themselves up in 5th position after they overcame a difficult period while Dimitri Payet was out injured.

      But he returned to action a few games ago, and he’s likely to be starting against Newcastle on Saturday as West Ham look to make it five wins in a row in all competitions.

      The Hammers have avoided defeat in their last nine matches in all competitions and have only lost twice in their last 16 outings.

      Their defensive performances have been excellent even during their poor attacking spell. West Ham have only conceded four goals in their last nine matches.

      With Dimitri Payet slotting right back in after a fairly long injury layoff I can see West Ham getting the win on Saturday. They have won their last four matches against Newcastle as well, so odds of 2.100 for a West Ham 0.0 Asian Handicap Win look incredibly good value. I’m also going for a comfortable 2-0 correct score prediction at 14/1 thanks to the visitors excellent defence.
