Newcastle resume their Premier League run by hosting West Ham, hoping to stay in the Champions League places.
Morale at Newcastle is on a whole new level after reaching their first cup final in 24 years by beating Southampton in the Carabao Cup.
Newcastle are looking to make it 16 league games unbeaten as they come face to face with David Moyes’ struggling West Ham.
Sitting close to the relegation zone, the Hammers have managed just five games and 18 points so far this season and although they beat Everton 2-0 in their recent game, the club still have a lot of work to do. to do.
And given the miraculous atmosphere at St James’ Park, it will be difficult for Moyes’ side to break the momentum as well as their prolific goalkeeper.
Nick Pope has kept a clean sheet in his last six Premier League appearances – no England goalkeeper has ever done so in seven consecutive games in the competition.
Will Newcastle continue their way to victory?
talkSPORT EDGE have a look…
- Since losing 3-0, 2-0 to West Ham in the 2018-19 season, Newcastle have scored in each of their last six Premier League meetings with the Hammers, losing just once (W3 D2)
- West Ham won that exact match 4-2 last season, last winning consecutive league away games against Newcastle in October 1998. They have scored 11 goals in their last four league visits to the Magpies, as many as they had in their previous 14 at Parc Saint-James
- Three of Newcastle’s last four Premier League games have ended 0-0. Indeed, they have had six scoreless draws in total this season, their most in a single Premier League campaign (also 1994-95)
- West Ham are seeking back-to-back Premier League wins for only the second time this season, following their 2-0 win over Everton last time out. However, they are winless in their last eight trips (D2 L6), since a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa in August.
- Newcastle have kept 12 clean sheets in the Premier League this season, their highest in a single top-flight campaign since 2011-12 (15). They have kept a clean sheet in each of their last six Premier League games – the last team to keep seven in a row with an England manager at the helm was Steve McClaren’s Middlesbrough in December 2003.
- Newcastle’s Callum Wilson has scored nine goals in 11 Premier League appearances against West Ham, more than he has against any other side. His first goals in the competition were a hat-trick against the Hammers, in a 4-3 win for Bournemouth at Upton Park in August 2015.
- Newcastle have only been 80 minutes behind in the Premier League this season, less than any other team. They have conceded no first-half goals in their last 16 Premier League games, with only Aston Villa (18 in 1995-96) and Arsenal (20 in 1998-99) having such longer runs.
- West Ham manager David Moyes will edge Harry Redknapp in third place for most Premier League games handled in this game (642). The Scot’s next victory in the competition will be his 250th – having won none of his first eight away games against Newcastle in the Premier League (D3 L5), he has won four of his last seven at St. James ‘Park (D1 L2)
- Only Kevin De Bruyne (63) has created more chances than Newcastle’s Kieran Trippier (59) in the Premier League this season. Trippier’s 59 is the most (since 2003-04) by a Newcastle defender in a single top-flight campaign, and the most by any Magpies player since Matt Ritchie in 2018-19 (60)
