Commentary

Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game! Until next time, goodbye!
Newcastle face Liverpool at Anfield next, while West Ham host Chelsea in a significant fixture in the top four race.
There goes the full-time whistle! Newcastle went 2-0 up via a Diop own-goal which saw Dawson pick up a second yellow and a Joelinton tap-in courtesy of Fabianski dropping the ball at his feet. However, West Ham came back in the second half despite being a man down, with Diop heading in before Lingard smashed a penalty in off the post after VAR ruled that Clark had handled the ball in the area. But Newcastle came out on top as on-loan Arsenal midfielder Willock headed in the winner less than a minute off the bench! Newcastle move nine points clear of the relegation zone, while a positive result for Chelsea on Tuesday would see West Ham drop out of the top four. It finishes 3-2 to Newcastle!
90' + 9' FULL-TIME: NEWCASTLE UNITED 3-2 WEST HAM
A. Carroll
Joelinton
90' + 8' Bruce makes a late change of his own as he looks to run the clock down, with Joelinton going off for Carroll up front.
R. Fredericks
B. Johnson
90' + 5' Moyes makes a late substitution as he replaces Johnson with Fredericks for the final few minutes.
J. Murphy
Yellow Card
90' + 5' Murphy is shown a yellow card, possibly for something he said to the referee.
90' + 3' Newcastle are looking to run the clock down now. Ritchie wins a foul off Coufal in the corner and they have three men up to try and keep it there.
90' + 1' There will be EIGHT minutes of time added on here. Can West Ham snatch another equaliser, or will Newcastle hold out?
89' West Ham throw men forward in search of another equalising goal and Lanzini squares to Benrahma on the edge of the box, but his effort is tame and easily blocked away.
M. Lanzini
J. Lingard
87' Moyes is forced to replace the injured Lingard now, with Lanzini coming on for the closing stages of the contest.
86' Lingard is down and being treated by the medical team. There appears to be an issue with his left leg and it looks like he may have to be replaced.
84' Willock has three goals in nine Premier League games for Newcastle, having scored just one in 40 appearances for Arsenal in the competition.
M. Ritchie
Assist
82' Ritchie got himself into an advanced position on the left and delivered into a dangerous area with quality, where Willock arrived to thump it home!
J. Willock
Goal
82' GOAL!!! NEWCASTLE ARE BACK IN FRONT!!! Ritchie gets down the left and floats a cross into the box where Willock, just off the bench, rises highest to power a header at goal that Fabianski can only parry up and in off the bar! It's 3-2 to Newcastle!
82' OFF THE LINE! Wilson is released down the left and squares for Almiron, who is one-on-one, but he can't control the pass and it breaks behind him for Murphy, who goes for goal first-time and beats Fabianski, but Johnson is there to block it off the line!
J. Willock
S. Longstaff
80' Bruce makes a change in midfield as he looks to seize the initiative and put his side back in front, replacing Longstaff with Willock - on loan from Arsenal.
J. Lingard
Penalty Goal
80' GOAL!! LINGARD SCORES!! It's a terrific penalty from Lingard, who steps up and smashes the spot-kick in off the left-hand post! Dubravka was never getting anywhere near that! It's 2-2 and 10-man West Ham have come back from 2-0 down!
79' Clark appears to have injured his neck as he challenged for the ball and gave away the penalty and there's a delay so he can be treated before the penalty is taken.
77' PENALTY TO WEST HAM!! Clark leads with his arm as he jumps to head a cross aimed at Soucek away in the box and the ball strikes the defender's forearm. The referee goes to the monitor to check the incident and awards the spot-kick! West Ham have a golden opportunity to level the scores!
S. Benrahma
M. Noble
75' Moyes makes a positive change now as he looks to harness the momentum his side have generated, replacing Noble with an extra forward in Benrahma.
J. Bowen
Assist
73' Bowen's cross from a deep position on the right was outstanding. It had pace and precision and Diop simply had to guide it past Dubravka.
I. Diop
Goal
73' GOAL!!! 10-MAN WEST HAM HAVE ONE BACK!!! Diop, having scored an own-goal in the first half, gets into space in the centre as Bowen whips a cross in and steers a firm header inside the far post, beyond the reach of Dubravka! It's 2-1 now!
70' West Ham are continuing to pile the pressure on, forcing yet another corner as Clark is forced to head behind. The visitors have been very much in control in this second half.
68' There's a pause in proceedings as Joelinton is down holding his head after a knock from Ogbonna. He's taken to the sidelines for treatment, but thankfully is given the all-clear and jogs back onto the pitch.
66' SAVE! Johnson cuts onto his right and lofts in a terrific cross from the left that Coufal gets away from his marker to meet at the back post. He heads powerfully down into the ground, but Dubravka is there to smother the effort at his near post! What a chance!
C. Wilson
A. Saint-Maximin
64' Bruce makes his first change of the game, taking off Saint-Maximin - whose influence has waned as the game has gone on - and replacing him with Wilson up front.
64' West Ham win yet another corner and it's cleared as far as Johnson outside the box. The full-back takes on an ambitious volley from range, but leans back and skews his effort high over the bar.
62' West Ham are really piling on the pressure now, winning two more corners in quick succession, but they fail to make the most of them as Newcastle defend their box desperately. 
60' WIDE! Lingard receives the ball from Johnson on the left and sees his shot deflected behind for a corner. Lingard then takes the corner short back to Johnson, who crosses to Ogbonna at the back post, but the defender nods wide of the far corner via a deflection! 
58' CHANCE! What a chance for West Ham! Bowen gets away down the right side of the box and finds himself one-on-one with Dubravka at a tight angle. He tries to take it past the onrushing goalkeeper, but Dubravka gets a crucial touch on the ball to take it away from the Hammers forward!
56' Since the restart, West Ham have enjoyed 70% of the ball, with Newcastle struggling to make the the most of their extra man.
54' Despite their man advantage, Newcastle are being forced back and West Ham are keeping them penned into their third.
52' Lingard sees an effort blocked and Newcastle hit back on the counter. Ritchie thinks he's been released over the top down the left and he races in behind before pulling his shot well wide of the target, but the flag goes up against him.
50' West Ham, despite being down to 10 men, have a 2-0 deficit to make up for and are still attempting to play on the front foot.
48' SAVE! Bowen tries to catch Newcastle on the counter and races into the box down the right before firing an effort across goal, but Dubravka gets down to make the save!
47' WIDE! Newcastle start on the front foot and Almiron races to the edge of the box before lashing a left-footed effort towards the bottom-right corner, but he drags it wide of the target!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
Moyes will be absolutely furious with his side in the dressing room. West Ham had just started to exert a measure of control over the game before shooting themselves in the foot. At 2-0 down with 10 men, the Hammers won't be looking forward to the second half. Bruce, meanwhile, will be delighted at being gifted a two-goal lead and with the form of Saint-Maximin, who looked very dangerous in the first 45 minutes.
There goes the half-time whistle! Newcastle lead at the break thanks to a series of West Ham errors, with Dawson giving the ball away and picking up a second yellow in the build-up to Saint-Maximin forcing a Diop own-goal, before Fabianski fumbled what should have been a simple catch from a corner, allowing Joelinton to tap in from a yard out. It's 2-0 to Newcastle at half-time!
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: NEWCASTLE UNITED 2-0 WEST HAM
45' West Ham have finally settled down a little and are trying to keep the ball as best they can until the break.
43' SAVE! West Ham are all over the place! Joelinton jinks his way into the box and lashes at goal from a tight angle, but Fabianski gets down to keep it out!
Joelinton
Goal
41' GOAL!!! IT'S 2-0 TO NEWCASTLE!! It's another howler at the back for West Ham! Fabianski rises for what should be a routine catch following a corner from the right, but he fumbles it and it drops at the feet of Joelinton, who can't miss from a yard out!
38' That was Dawson's first-ever red card in what was his 345th career league appearance.
36' SENT OFF! Not only did Dawson's heavy touch lead to Newcastle scoring, but the West Ham defender's late challenge as he tried to make up for his error sees him pick up a second yellow card! West Ham are down to 10 men!
I. Diop
Own Goal
36' GOAL!!! NEWCASTLE TAKE THE LEAD!! It's a comedy of errors at the back from West Ham! Dawson takes a very heavy touch as he receives a pass near the centre-circle and gives it away before clattering into Joelinton as he chased his touch, allowing Saint-Maximin to drive at goal. The Newcastle forward evades Noble and jinks his way to the right side of the box before placing a shot across goal that Diop tries to clear, but he gets his feet in a muddle and ends up backheeling into his own net! It's 1-0 to Newcastle!
34' There's a brief stoppage as Fernandez is down. He doesn't appear to have done any serious damage, however, and is back up on his feet after re-tying his laces.
32' Fornals clips a cross in from the right towards Noble in the box, who tries to take it on the volley, but the West Ham skipper loses his balance as he strikes it and sends it well wide!
30' West Ham finally seem to have gained control of the match, with Newcastle having struggled to get out over the last five minutes or so. The visitors are keeping the ball well and pinning the hosts back.
28' West Ham keep the pressure on following that Bowen effort, but they can't quite work another shooting opportunity as the hosts pack their box.
26' BLOCK! Bowen cuts in from the right onto his favoured left foot and gets to the edge of the area before thumping a firm effort at goal, but it's blocked away and Dubravka just gets there in time to prevent the corner.
23' BLOCK! Saint-Maximin is really in the mood today! He drives at the West Ham defence yet again, twisting and turning into space on the edge of the box before firing at goal, but his shot is charged down by Dawson and it goes behind for a corner!
21' After a frenetic, end-to-end spell, the game has calmed down in the last few minutes as West Ham keep the ball in their own half.
19' SAVE! Just a minute after having a shot charged down, Saint-Maximin latches onto the ball on the edge of the box after West Ham fail to properly clear their lines and lashes another low effort at goal, but it's not in the corner and Fabianski gets down to hold on!
17' SAVE! Noble pings a free-kick into the left side of the box and Dawson arrives, unmarked, to power a header at goal, but he places it too central and a relieved Dubravka holds on to the ball!
J. Shelvey
Yellow Card
16' Shelvey picks up the second yellow card of the game following a lazy, late challenge on Bowen in midfield. The midfielder feels the booking is harsh, but the referee's mind is made up.
14' SAVE! Newcastle apply some pressure and the ball is worked to Murphy on the edge of the box. The wide man tries his luck and smacks a stinging effort towards the bottom-right corner, but Fabianski gets down to make the stop!
C. Dawson
Yellow Card
12' Dawson scythes Joelinton down as the striker bursts towards goal on the counter and receives the first yellow card of the game.
10' There's more rough treatment for Saint-Maximin now as Johnson clatters into the back of him as the pair jump to contest an aerial ball. 
9' BLOCK! Saint-Maximin picks himself up after Coufal's hefty challenge and drives purposefully at the Hammers defence, dancing past several challenges on the left and getting into the box before unleashing a fierce drive at goal, but it's blocked away by Murphy!
8' Coufal goes in hard on Saint-Maximin and the Newcastle forward stays down and grimaces in pain, holding his right shin. There's no booking for the Hammers right-back, however.
6' The corner is floated in to the back post and Fabianski gets caught under the flight of the ball, attempting to palm clear but getting nothing! Thankfully for him, Johnson is there at the back post to nod it away.
5' WIDE! Longstaff tries to drill a shot low into the bottom-left corner from the edge of the box, but Dawson gets enough on it to deflect it just wide of the post and behind for a corner!
3' The game has yet to settle into a rhythm, with the opening minutes marred by a couple of disruptive fouls.
1' We're underway at St. James' Park!
However, West Ham have won just two of their last 16 Premier League away games against Newcastle (D6 L8), winning 1-0 in November 2012 and 3-0 in December 2018.
Since Moyes returned to the club, West Ham are unbeaten in all 22 of their Premier League games against sides in the bottom half of the table (W14 D8). Meanwhile, Newcastle have won just four of their 23 games against sides in the top four since returning to the Premier League in 2017 (D2 L17).
Meanwhile, West Ham manager David Moyes makes two enforced changes after his men held on to record a 3-2 victory over Leicester City in their last fixture. Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku join Darren Randolph, Declan Rice and Michail Antonio on the treatment table, with Ogbonna and Johnson coming in to replace them.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce makes just one change following his side's 2-1 win over Burnley last time out, with Gayle dropping to the bench and Saint-Maximin - who came on as a substitute to score the winning goal at Turf Moor - taking his place in the side. Jamaal Lascelles, Ryan Fraser, Fabian Schar and Isaac Hayden are all ruled out through injury.
West Ham substitutes: Conor Coventry, Frederik Alves, Andriy Yarmolenko, David Martin, Manuel Lanzini, Nathan Trott, Fabian Balbuena, Ryan Fredericks, Said Benrahma.
West Ham XI (3-4-1-2): Lukasz Fabianski; Issa Diop, Craig Dawson, Angelo Ogbonna; Vladimir Coufal, Mark Noble, Tomas Soucek, Ben Johnson; Pablo Fornals; Jarrod Bowen, Jesse Lingard.
Newcastle United substitutes: Andy Carroll, Jeff Hendrick, Emil Krafth, Mark Gillespie, Callum Wilson, Jamal Lewis, Dwight Gayle, Javier Manquillo, Joe Willock.
Newcastle United XI (5-3-2): Martin Dubravka; Jacob Murphy, Federico Fernandez, Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, Matt Ritchie; Miguel Almiron, Jonjo Shelvey, Sean Longstaff; Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin.
Fourth-placed West Ham will be looking for a third win on the spin to maintain their unlikely charge for a Champions League place, while 17th-placed Newcastle will want to further extend the six-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone.
