West Ham visit Newcastle United in the Premier League today as David Moyes’ travelling team look to maintain their stunning pursuit of a Champions League place.

The Hammers enter this fixture at St James’ Park in fourth place in the standings, one point clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with seven games remaining this season. In their last three matches, West Ham have taken 3-0 leads, ultimately drawing with Arsenal before hanging on against Wolves and – most recently – Leicester for 3-2 victories in those two outings. A win here would put further pressure on Chelsea, who today will be in FA Cup action against top-flight leaders Man City, looking for a spot in the final.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have begun to pull clear of the relegation zone in recent weeks. Despite having recorded just one win in their last five matches – a 2-1 result against Burnley last time out – Steve Bruce’s 17th-placed team are six points off the bottom three, with a game in hand over 18th Fulham. The Magpies will want to put further space between themselves and the Cottagers and West Brom, however, while bottom Sheffield United are well behind. Follow live updates from Newcastle United vs West Ham in the Premier League below.


HALF TIME Newcastle 2-0 West Ham

Well, it is not exactly a classic but the Magpies won’t care.

As for West Ham, their attacking play has been incredibly uninspired while two individual errors have allowed two goals for their opponents.

Something needs to change for the Hammers in the second half.
