West Ham visit Newcastle United in the Premier League today as David Moyes’ travelling team look to maintain their stunning pursuit of a Champions League place.

The Hammers enter this fixture at St James’ Park in fourth place in the standings, one point clear of fifth-placed Chelsea with seven games remaining this season. In their last three matches, West Ham have taken 3-0 leads, ultimately drawing with Arsenal before hanging on against Wolves and – most recently – Leicester for 3-2 victories in those two outings. A win here would put further pressure on Chelsea, who today will be in FA Cup action against top-flight leaders Man City, looking for a spot in the final.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have begun to pull clear of the relegation zone in recent weeks. Despite having recorded just one win in their last five matches – a 2-1 result against Burnley last time out – Steve Bruce’s 17th-placed team are six points off the bottom three, with a game in hand over 18th Fulham. The Magpies will want to put further space between themselves and the Cottagers and West Brom, however, while bottom Sheffield United are well behind.
