The best soccer predictions for West Ham United vs Newcastle United
West Ham United faces Newcastle United in a 29th round of the English Premier League. The duel will be held this Saturday, March 2, starting at 5:30 pm at the London Stadium.
West Ham team is 10th in the standings with 36 points to their name. The Hammers have won 36% of their 28 matches this season, scoring 35 goals and 41 goals in their goal. Manuel Pellegrini’s graduates have won 43% of their households by playing better on their own terrain and will try to add three points to their assets this Saturday to keep their place in the top 10.
On Wednesday, Londoners lost 0-1 from Manchester City to Etihad and last weekend defeated Fulham with 3:1. The Hammers have only one success in their past seven matches in all tournaments, but they are the favorites of their Newcastle United household. West Ham has many class players in its line-up and especially in the top positions. Manuel Pellegrini can count on Felipe Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez to score goals and also have options like Michail Antonio and Andriy Yarmolenko. In this compressed period of games the hosts seem to have much more opportunity for rotations in the squad, and that’s what can be key to Saturday’s victory.
The guests in this match, Newcastle United, are 13th in the standings with a total of 31 points. The Magpies have won 29% of their 28 games in this campaign with only 26 goals and having the third slightest assault in the Premier League. Team manager Rafael Benitez desperately wanted new players in his team in the winter, but that did not happen, so it would be a real feat if the Spanish specialist kept the team in the elite of England. This seems quite possible as Newcastle has a six point advance in front of the danger zone. The Magpies are in a series of two consecutive wins after defeating Burnley (2:0) and Huddersfield Town (2:0) at their St James’ Park stadium. In my opinion, however, in the coming match Newcastle will defeat, as West Ham hosts and has the better players in its composition.
