Newcastle Vs. West Ham
Last season, Newcastle secured themselves an instant return to the premier league. However, the beginning of the premier league season has not been so bright for them. What is more, their transfer policy in summer has been a topic of discussion from inside and outside the club.
West Ham, on the other hand, has not been exactly so great either. However, despite their loss, they portrayed a real fighting spirit during their match with Southampton. They also lost to the red devils by 4-0 goals.
Head to head
In the last 4 encounters, each team has walked away with two wins in home matches. There is no doubt about the strong history of Newcastle against West Ham on home soil. They have proven unbeatable in the last two home meetings and one draw. West Ham, on the other hand, has only won 1 game out of 13 visit matches to St. James Park, 7 losses and 5 draws.
Despite the two defeats, West Ham won the mid week league cup-tie against Cheltenham.
