Premier League Preview for Newcastle United v West Ham along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Newcastle United did not start the year very well after enduring a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City. Newcastle will also be without Steven Taylor for Saturday’s match after his red card on Monday.
West Ham United started out their year with an outstanding 2-0 win over Cardiff City. Joe Cole looked especially good, almost like his younger self playing for Chelsea. West Ham does have a good looking team this year and if they can get playing together have a good chance of moving up the table.
Newcastle also has a decent team, but so far they haven’t shown that they are able to play together very well.
My prediction for Saturday’s EPL match is a West Ham United win. Newcastle cannot afford to play like they did in Monday’s match, but I don’t think they will be able to make enough of a change to get a win. They could force a draw from West Ham, but need to get their midfield more involved in getting the ball forward.
Form: Newcastle United (L) West Ham United (W)
Prediction: Newcastle United 1 – 2 West Ham United
