West Ham are in town for a massive Premier League clash on Sunday as they seek to overcome Newcastle and move further away from the relegation zone.


The Hammers have struggled since the restart of the season this summer but a huge win over Chelsea last time out has eased pressure on the rest of their Premier League fixtures to secure safety for another term.

Andriy Yarmolenko finished off the Blues with a last-gasp finish, while Michail Antonio produced a dominant display throughout the game at the London Stadium.

David Moyes’ men face a Newcastle side that are looking up the table, rather than down it, as they seek a top-half finish.

Newcastle may be all-but safe from the drop but manager Steve Bruce is still desperate for wins to maintain his chances of keeping his job should prospective new Saudi Arabian owners finally take over on Tyneside. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Newcastle v West Ham game on TV and online.

Newcastle v West Ham team news

Newcastle: Sean Longstaff scored and suffered a first-half injury in the 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday, and will be monitored ahead of this Sunday's clash.

Javier Manquillo is also a worry, while boss Bruce admitted in midweek that he has a "few" players carrying niggles.

West Ham: Sebastian Haller is unlikely to be fit for the weekend, while Angelo Ogbonna is back in training and could play on Sunday.

Arthur Masuaku may also return to the side, while Pablo Zabaleta, Carlos Sanchez and Jeremy Ngakia have all now left the club after their contracts expired.

Our prediction: Newcastle v West Ham

West Ham are in far greater need of a win here but Newcastle won’t surrender their hopes of a top-10 finish so easily.

Expect the Hammers to come out in bullish mood after beating Chelsea in midweek. They will hope to strike early on Tyneside.

But Newcastle have produced steady results so far this summer and Bruce is getting the best out of his midfield men right now. The Magpies could well snatch this.

Our prediction: Newcastle 2-1 West Ham
