Newcastle v West Ham Betting Preview

West Ham have only been beaten once in their last five trips to St James’ Park, notching up a total of 12 goals. Newcastle’s form has been shaky, managing just a single victory in their past six matches. At home, they’ve also struggled, with just one win in their last five games, during which they’ve let in two goals on four occasions. Lucas Paqueta has been in fine form for West Ham, scoring in two of their last three games, including a goal at St James’ Park last season.

As we kick off the Premier League weekend, this match is crucial in the scramble for European spots. West Ham, sitting just three points off the top six, are eyeing up a Europa League place, currently holding the seventh spot. They also have a shot at Champions League football through winning the Europa League this season. Meanwhile, Newcastle, placed tenth, seem likely to miss out on European football after a challenging season. However, they’re only two points behind eighth place, which could secure them a favourable position in the Europa Conference League next year. Can the Magpies make a late push for European glory?

The Hammers have plenty at stake, with significant matches in both domestic and European competitions. Their immediate future could hinge on a demanding week featuring three games in seven days, including critical fixtures against Tottenham and Wolves, following their visit to the North East.

West Ham’s recent form has improved, with just one defeat in their last six outings. This loss was avenged with a resounding 5-0 victory at home. Their last away game saw them victorious against Everton, adding to impressive wins at Arsenal, Tottenham, and Brighton earlier in the season.

Lucas Paqueta is a key player for West Ham, having scored in their previous meeting with Newcastle and entering this match on a high after scoring against Spain in a recent friendly. Given Newcastle’s form and injury concerns, West Ham look poised to extend their positive record at this venue, potentially in a high-scoring encounter.
