Toon To Continue Impressive Form

Newcastle United will welcome relegation fighters, West Ham, to St James’ Park on Sunday in the Premier League – here is all the key information that you need to know ahead of kick-off.

Both sides come into the game full of confidence after securing vital points in their previous fixtures.

The hosts have found their goalscoring touch since returning from the break as they have netted eight times in their last four outings.

Last time out the Geordies thrashed Bournemouth at the Vitality with a scoreline of four goals to one.

Steve Bruce’s men scored either side of half time before the Cherries managed to bag themselves a consolation goal in added time, when the result was already beyond doubt.

West Ham will arrive in northeast England with the wind in their sails after coming out on top of a nail-biting London derby at the London Stadium.

The Hammers hosted top-four hopefuls, Chelsea, in midweek in what was a thrilling game from start to finish.

The hosts battled into a two, one lead just after half time but a second goal from Willian on the night put the Blues level.

However just as the game was looking to be heading to a 2-2 draw, the East Londoners launched a last-ditch counterattack which resulted in Andriy Yarmolenko firing the ball into the back of the net in fantastic style.

With both sides eager to not let their winning form slip at this crucial time in the campaign, the game is set up to be one to keep your eye on.

With West Ham lingering dangerously close to the drop zone they will be desperate to score some goals however with a leaky defence and an opposition side that is in red hot form in front of goal, I think the hosts will come out on top.
