West Ham vs Newcastle 23 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

West Ham will be at home at London Stadium as the Hammers play host to Newcastle United in the next game in the English Premier League. This is a game between two of the biggest clubs in England so I am expecting a big crowd and a very good game of football.

West Ham are starting to play some good football and the new manager seems to have impacted the players well. This side is looking much more committed and with the quality of player which the Hammers have available to them, they should be a good side. This will be a big game for the Hammers since there are three points available which they need to stay clear of the relegation zone.

On the other side of the coin, Newcastle United are also in trouble with relegation near and they will also want to start getting some wins. This is a good opportunity for the Magpies to get a win and due to that reason, I am expecting a committed performance from the side. This team has defensive issues which they need to sort out since the likes of Ayew and Antonio can cause trouble for the defenders. With that in mind, I think away from home Newcastle United are not going to be good enough and will leave London with a loss.

We are getting a decent price on West Ham United winning this game and as a result we should make a bet on this market. In addition to that, I also like the over 2.5 goals since both teams can score goals but can’t defend. Likewise, the both teams to score is also a decent bet.
