On February 4, St. James Park (Newcastle) will host the match of the 22nd round of the English Premier League, in which Newcastle will compete with West Ham. The battle will start at 18:30 CET.


The club leaves a rather contradictory impression. On the one hand, this is a real sensation of the current season. Nowadays, having passed a half of the draw, “the Black and Whites” are in an incredibly high position – the 3rd place, especially taking into account the fact that a year ago relegation to the Championship was more than close. At the same time, Eddie Howe’s wards managed to reach the final in the EFL Cup. On the other hand, having the same traditionally reliable defence, there is a “drought” in the attack. It was possible to score only once in 4 previous matches in the Premier League – Isak, who came to the club in the summer, scored in the 89th minute of the game. A 0-0 draw in the battle with Arsenal can be considered as a positive result, but the same “goalless” draws were with Leeds and Crystal Palace. As a result, there followed the attempts to strengthen the squad just before the deadline. Malcolm was not taken from Zenit, but the 45-million contract with Gordon was signed up after meeting half a way with Everton.

West Ham

The team shows the opposite dynamics. In previous draws, being under the rule of David Moyes, “the Hammers” claimed the 4th place – there was no success, but the team made its way to the European competition twice in a row. Last summer the management spent tens of millions on newcomers again, but a lot of them, including Lukas Paqueta and Aguerd, failed the game. And it was not in vain that experienced, but not too famous, Danny Ings from Aston Villa was taken to London in the winter. The results are more than disappointing: only 5 out of 20 matches were won, and 18 points were taken – it goes without saying that the higher mentioned statistics results in “hanging over” the relegation zone. There believed that “Moyesy” could be fired, but the match for “life” against Everton was won with a 2-0 score due to Bowen’s double. As a result, Lampard was fired... By the way, then, “Moyesy’s” wards repeated the higher mentioned result in the FA Cup match with Derby.

The statistics of head-to-head matches

Newcastle took 10 out of 12 possible points in 2019-2021. Still, West Ham was better in the previous season: a 4-2 victory in the away match and a 1-1 draw in the home one.


Bookmakers do not believe that “the Hammers” will continue their successful streak. Newcastle, being on its way to a great goal, will play at home arena – we bet on its victory (odd: 1.62).
