Newcastle United vs West Ham United Prediction: Premier League Match on 17.04.2021
Newcastle United improved their survival chances last time out, as they picked up a much-needed win against Burnley. However, they will come up against one of the most exciting sides in the Premier League this weekend, as West Ham are the visitors to St James’ Park.
Premier League Preview
West Ham United are still in the mix for a Champions League place in the Premier League. Their aim between now and the end of the season couldn’t be more simple, as they bid to win more fixtures than the sides around them. The Hammers are the team with the control coming into the final seven games of the season, as they are one point clear of Chelsea, and three clear of Liverpool. West Ham may also have their attention on finishing the season higher in the league standings, as they could move up to third in the standings with a victory on the road this weekend. West Ham have won their last two games 3-2, and both followed a very similar pattern. The Hammers stormed ahead to a 3-0 lead in both games, before allowing their opponents back into the game. They also did the same this in the game that they last dropped points, as Arsenal came from 3-0 down to snatch a point.
Newcastle’s survival chances have been increased over the past seven days, as they have opened a six-point gap between themselves and the drop zone. The Toon have lost just once in their last six, but their only win during that run of form came in their most recent fixture against Burnley. Newcastle came from 1-0 down in that fixture to claim the three points, and could move up to 15th with a win this weekend.
Newcastle United vs West Ham United Head To Head
Newcastle have enjoyed decent results against West Ham over the past couple of seasons. The Toon have won two of the recent three fixtures between the sides, which includes the 2-0 win that they achieved back in September. West Ham last beat Newcastle in March 2019.
