West Ham v Newcastle team news

West Ham: Tomas Soucek is a doubt for the game after coming into contact with a member of the Czech Republic national team who was positively diagnosed with COVID-19.

Declan Rice should start in central midfield alongside Mark Noble, while Manuel Lanzini is a doubt due to a thigh injury.

Newcastle: Jamal Lewis could immediately come into the defence after signing from Norwich in midweek.

Bruce has plenty of injuries in his squad hanging over from last term, so don’t be surprised if both Wilson and Fraser start here.

Our prediction: West Ham v Newcastle

West Ham may have a near-fit squad for this clash but Newcastle have been far more active in the transfer market.

And Bruce’s men will be confident heading to east London, especially considering they won a 3-2 thriller the last time they visited.

Striker Wilson is tipped to lead the line and he could make the difference on his debut.

Our prediction: West Ham 0-1 Newcastle
