West Ham vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium (London).
After their confidence-boosting win against Manchester United, West Ham has slightly gone off track. And they will be desperate to make a comeback this weekend. The fact that they are at home, coupled with the struggles of the Magpies, especially on the road, gives the fans at Olympic Stadium something to look forward to.
Even more good news for the Irons is the off-form offense of the visitors that have so far contributed just six to the total number of goals scored in the Premier League.

West Ham vs Newcastle United Prediction
The Hammers will be disappointed after they had to settle for a draw by Sheffield the last day, at home. It would particularly hurt that the hosts had been leading for a considerable amount of time in the second half before they conceded the equalizer.
Surely, the players would be frustrated and will try to make amends.
Opponents of Magpies meanwhile faced defeated on the road by the Blues. And was not even afforded the opportunity to find the back of the net even once.
In addition, the team lost the previous three road trips and conceded a total of nine goals in the process as well. Keep note that they had failed to score even one, in their last two away ties.
Furthermore, the squad could manage a total of just four victories from their prior nineteen road games, and one of these had been in a friendly.
On the other hand, their opposite number was unbeaten in 11 of their former 15 overall fixtures and was so in 13 of their preceding 16 in front of the home crowd.
Piling on, Bruce’s men are one of the worst in away fixtures, and in fact, they have lost all but one of such games this season. Also, they have failed to score in three of their last five overall matches, and have just two wins to show for, from their efforts in the preceding eleven match-days.
Finally, h2h clashes have generally been favorable to the squads at home, and Manuel Pellegrini’s men have been particular at making their home status count.
Taking these observations under consideration, we can count on the hosts to put forth a great display this match-day.
