Two sides that enjoyed midweek matches in Europe will collide in the Premier League on Sunday. Newcastle enjoyed one of their greatest nights in their history, as they claimed a famous 4-1 home win over PSG in the Champions League. The Magpies are back in form domestically, as they have won their previous three in the Premier League.
Their response after suffering three straight defeats has been excellent, as they have won each of their previous three by an aggregate scoreline of 11-0. However, they haven’t won four on the bounce in the league without conceding since April 2012 under Alan Pardew.
West Ham have also bounced back to winning ways recently, as they landed a 2-0 win over Sheffield United last weekend. The Hammers have picked up 13 points from their opening seven matches this term, which marks their best start to a Premier League season since the 2015-16 campaign. Victory on Sunday would mark their best start to a season since 1999-2000.
However, they have a poor record in this fixture, as they have landed just one win in their previous eight against the Magpies in the Premier League. Their only victory was a 4-2 success at St. James’ Park in August 2021. Newcastle have won on four of their six visits to the London Stadium in the Premier League.
West Ham vs Newcastle Prediction
Newcastle’s record in this fixture is hard to overlook. However, they will need to recompose themselves after a famous win over PSG in midweek, which could be challenging. Therefore, a chance is taken on the Hammers to pick up maximum points on Sunday.
