Newcastle United look to be finding form at a crucial stage of the season. Despite seven points from their last three Premier League games, Rafael Benitez will be wary of any complacency with his side not yet assured of their top-flight status.
The Magpies will be looking to make it a hat-trick of victories on Saturday night as they visit the London Stadium.
Newcastle, despite their recent upturn in form, are outsiders at 11/4 (3.75) with a draw priced at 49/20 (3.45). Benitez has won 11 Premier League games against the Hammers in his career, more than another other opponent.
Samir Nasri returned to the hosts' line-up in the midweek 1-0 defeat to Manchester City. Manuel Pellegrini still has several long-term absentees though with Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Carlos Sanchez amongst those ruled out.
Republic of Ireland pair Ciaran Clark and Rob Elliot are missing for the visitors.
While their form has picked up at St James' Park, it's tough to trust Newcastle on the road just yet, especially against a Hammers side who have proved a tough nut to crack in front of their own fans.
The arrival of record signing Miguel Almiron certainly appears to have sparked a turnaround in Benitez's side though, and they look capable of holding their own given their recent displays.
Tips and Predictions
Saturday night's clash could be an end-to-end affair. Newcastle have the fifth best defensive record in the Premier League. On the road though, they’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last eight away games and that came at rock-bottom Huddersfield.
Pellegrini's side have only drawn two blanks in their previous nine league games at this venue, netting 15 times in the other seven clashes.
