West Ham vs Newcastle United PredictionIn one of the matches billed to go down in the Premier League this weekend, West Ham welcome Newcastle United to the London Stadium on Saturday night, both sides going all out for glory.
Match status: 2020/21 Premier League - Matchweek 1
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London)
These two teams finished in the bottom-half of the standings last season – one faring a little better than the other though. West Ham played out a horrific season, scraping 39 points from 38 games to narrowly escape relegation from the top division.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United let themselves down with their performances and results. A side touted to finish in the top-half, the Magpies could only clinch a 13th-place spot at the end of the season. Count on Bruce’s charges to achieve greater success this term.

West Ham vs Newcastle United Team News

Indeed, it is a miracle to still see West Ham United playing top-flight football given their well-documented struggles last season. Flirtatious with relegation, the Hammers spent most portion of the campaign in the drop-zone.

At a point, the club supporters were beginning to lose their cool as they began protests to call for the sack of head coach David Moyes. Nonetheless, the Scot gaffer managed to turn the fortunes of his side around, steering them away from relegation.

Having inexplicably kept West Ham in the Premier League for another season, Moyes will be faced with the chore of distancing his side from any relegation-related talk this time around. Surely, this will be a herculean task for the 57-year-old.

For their stature, it is pretty disturbing for the Hammers to be brandished as relegation contenders ahead of this new campaign. Such has been their decline in recent years. In fact, supporters are planning a protest for this Saturday’s game as another year of hostility brews in East London.

They are disappointed with the board’s decision to cash in on crowd favorite Grady Diangana to West Brom. Skipper Mark Noble even joined in the growing list of people to slam the club’s hierarchy. Tomas Soucek has been the only new signing made at the London Stadium this summer.

West Ham are a side known for slow starts to new seasons, as this has become a theme for the East London club. Newcastle United will be looking to take advantage of this trend when they lock horns with Moyes’ men this weekend.

The Magpies weren’t at their races last season but still managed to secure a respectable league finish. In preparation for the new campaign, they took part in a couple of friendlies – floundering in most of these fixtures.

Having fallen to a heavy 5-1 defeat at the hands of Championship side Middlesbrough, Bruce’s men went on to suffer another loss to Stoke City in their last pre-season game. This implies that the Tyneside club will be heading to this fixture on the back on successive defeats.

Newcastle will definitely be pushing for the top-half this season, with the likes of Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Jamal Lewis added to bolster their squad. If everything goes to plan, the Magpies should have some fun this term.

Injured or Suspended Players

Newcastle United: Dwight Gayle, Jamaal Lascelles, Martin Dubravka and Fabian Schar.
