West Ham United vs Newcastle United

Newcastle United travel down south to the capital to face West Ham at their London Stadium this Saturday for the 29th match of the season. Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping his side can shake off their poor form this weekend and return to winning ways. Newcastle, on the other hand, will be planning on extending their strong form which has seen them rise up into 13th, just five points behind their upcoming opponents. The Toon put up little resistance when they faced West Ham at home as after 90 minutes found themselves on the end of a 3-0 defeat.

West Ham’s biggest problem this season has been their consistency as they have struggled to maintain any form. They find themselves on a run of poor form which has seen them secure just one win in their last five games, alongside two draws and two defeats. The Hammers have gone up against some tough opponents in recent matches which includes both Manchester City and Liverpool. City dealt their most recent defeat with them winning 1-0 due to a penalty kick. The hosts are favourites for this meeting and can be backed with SkyBet to win at a price of 21/20.

Manuel Pellegrini will be glad to see his side return to home turf this weekend as they have been a much stronger side whilst playing at their London Stadium. The Hammers have gone unbeaten in their last five home games which include meetings against Arsenal and Liverpool. West Ham have conceded in all of their last five matches and have scored in three of those fixtures. Bet365 has both teams to score priced at 7/10. Felipe Anderson leads as his sides top goalscorer with nine goals and can be backed to score anytime with Betway at a price of 21/10.

Newcastle United have improved vastly since the beginning of the season and their efforts have seen them rise up into 13th where they sit just five points behind their next opponents. Newcastle head into this game looking to extend their unbeaten run of four games and to pick up their third consecutive win. The Toon have secured back-to-back wins against Huddersfield Town and Burnley most recently. Newcastle does arrive as the away side which has not been a strength for them this season, but if you fancy their chances then they can be backed with SkyBet at a price of 5/2.

Rafael Benitez’s side has been defensively strong in recent games with them conceding just three goals in their last five games and have managed to keep back-to-back clean sheets prior to this next fixture. SkyBet has them to keep another clean sheet priced at 3/1. Salomón Rondón sits as his sides top goalscorer with eight goals this season and can be backed to add to his tally with Betway at a price of 6/4.
