Newcastle vs West Ham Preview

  • Tournament – Premier League
  • Date – Saturday, March 30, 2024
  • Kick-off Time – 12:30 pm GMT
  • Venue – St. James’ Park

West Ham are making great strides this season having extended their unbeaten run of four matches in the Premier League. They are seventh in the league standings, twelve points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa and four points above hosts Newcastle United.

The Hammers have recorded an astounding 12 goals across their last four games at the London Stadium. But they have conceded in 17 of the last 18 away matches in the Premier League.

They will then take on Newcastle United, who have been languishing in 10th position in the Premier League table. Their European hopes still remain alive as they are only three points behind West Ham. Newcastle have not lost to West Ham in four consecutive meetings. The Magpies crashed out of the FA Cup at the hands of Manchester City just before the international break. Despite their unconvincing form this campaign, Newcastle are surely capable of securing three points at St. James’ Park.

The Magpies are certainly the heavy favorites coming into this fixture. They would love to recover from their FA Cup loss to Manchester City right before the international break. Newcastle are struggling this season as they have already suffered 12 Premier League defeats, seven more than they lost in the 2022/23 campaign.

Meanwhile, West Ham have also failed to gather any consistent runs this season. They have made it four Premier League games unbeaten when they hosted Aston Vila earlier this month. The Hammers are in a better position to have a firm grip on the European berth as they languish seventh in the league standings.
