Battle of the Titans: West Ham and Newcastle Set for Thrilling Premier League Showdown

Key Stats
– Newcastle’s stunning rise sees them seeking a fifth consecutive win in all competitions.
– West Ham, in a goal-scoring spree, aim to extend their streak to 10 consecutive Premier League games.
– A total of 21 goals have been scored in the last five encounters between these sides, with Newcastle bagging five in their most recent clash.

Both West Ham United and Newcastle United have been buoyed by their sensational midweek performances in European competitions. West Ham carved out a 2-1 victory against Freiburg in the Europa League. Meanwhile, Newcastle produced a football masterclass, thumping Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 in the Champions League.

The Hammers’ Dominant Flight

David Moyes’s Hammers have been in a rich vein of form, bagging three consecutive wins from different competitions. A spectacular aerial display against Freiburg showcased West Ham’s strength, with Lucas Paqueta and Nayef Aguerd netting the crucial goals. Back in England, their Premier League aspirations remain strong, having secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Sheffield United.

Occupying seventh in the table after seven games, West Ham are itching to extend their goal-scoring spree to 10 consecutive games. Yet, concerns loom about their defensive record, having struggled to keep clean sheets recently.

Newcastle’s Rejuvenation Under Howe

Following their meteoric rise from last season’s struggles, Eddie Howe’s Newcastle seem unstoppable. Their dismantling of PSG, led by local heroes Dan Burn and Sean Longstaff, alongside contributions from Miguel Almiron and Fabian Schar, left the St James’ Park in raptures. A renewed Newcastle sits eighth, eyeing further ascension. However, their defence on the road raises eyebrows, having kept just one clean sheet in their recent away outings.

Team News and Updates

West Ham faces potential striker woes, with Michail Antonio’s availability uncertain due to a groin issue. Moyes might reshuffle his attacking lineup, possibly making room for returning stars Tomas Soucek and Danny Ings.

Newcastle, too, have their concerns. Key striker Callum Wilson is recovering from a thigh injury. Meanwhile, Anthony Gordon’s suspension after his fifth yellow card of the season will see Jacob Murphy stepping up, and Jamaal Lascelles taking the leadership mantle.

Analysing Team Performances

  • West Ham United: With an average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.09, the Hammers have found the back of the net 13 times in seven matches. Their attack, boasting an average of 12.3 shots per game, has been particularly impressive. However, a ball possession statistic of 37.7% indicates their reliance on quick counter-attacks.
  • Newcastle United: Holding an average BettingTips4You Expert Rating of 7.08, the Magpies have outscored the Hammers with 18 goals in as many games. Their impressive ball possession of 52.1% and an average of 15.3 shots per game reveal a team dominant in their attacking play.


1. Match Outcome: Both Teams to Score and Newcastle to Win

When examining the recent track record of both teams, there is a compelling narrative to suggest a Newcastle victory. Their emphatic 4-1 win over PSG demonstrates their offensive prowess, and with 18 goals in 7 matches this season, their forward line is firing on all cylinders. However, West Ham’s scoring streak at home cannot be ignored. Moyes’s men have found the back of the net in all their Premier League home fixtures this year, making a case for both teams to score. While West Ham have been potent in front of goal, they went nine games without keeping a clean sheet before their encounter against Sheffield United. Given Newcastle’s recent attacking form, the visitors may just edge this one.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 2-3 to Newcastle

Considering the goal-scoring form of both teams, this match promises to be a high-scoring affair. The last five editions of this fixture have seen a staggering 21 goals, averaging over 4 goals per game. West Ham’s record of scoring in home games and Newcastle’s formidable goal count this season set the stage for a 2-3 outcome in favour of Newcastle.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Jarrod Bowen

Bowen has been in red-hot form for West Ham, leading their goal-scoring charts with five goals in seven Premier League outings. Given his form and the potential for goals in this game, he’s a strong candidate to find the back of the net. On the other hand, players like Almiron and Isak could be contenders from the Newcastle camp, but given the data at hand, Bowen appears to be the most likely candidate.

4. Corner Prediction: More Corners for Newcastle and Total Corners Over 9.5

Both teams have been very close in the corner statistics, with each averaging 4.6 corners per game. However, Newcastle’s slightly higher ball possession statistics and more shots per game indicate they might force West Ham to defend deeper, leading to more corners for the Magpies. The combined might of both teams, given their attacking style, suggests that the total corners in the game will exceed 9.5.
