Newcastle vs West Ham live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV today


Newcastle welcome West Ham to St James Park today as they look to put further distance between themselves and the Premier League relegation zone.

Steve Brue’s side moved six points clear of Fulham thanks to last weekend’s 2-1 win at Burnley, and have a further game in hand of the 18th-placed side.

West Ham, meanwhile, will be looking to extend their Champions League qualification bid, which received a huge boost after the Hammers beat Leicester 3-2 on Sunday.

The Hammers moved up to fourth in the Premier League table thanks to the win, and would go third with three points against Newcastle.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of this afternoon’s game.

What is the team news?

Newcastle welcomed the return of Callum Wilson against Burley. The striker was only fit enough to make the bench, but could start on Saturday after playing the final 30 minutes at Turf Moor. Alain Saint-Maximin is also expected to start after he played a starring role off the bench in the comeback win. Newcastle will have to wait on the fitness of Ryan Fraser, who has been missing due to a calf injury, while Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar and Isaac Hayden are expected to be out for the season.

The injuries keep piling up for West Ham. After Declan Rice and Michail Antonio were ruled out for the next few weeks due to injury prior to the Leicester match, West Ham then lost Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble during the game. Cresswell has a hamstring strain while Noble injured his elbow and will both require late fitness tests ahead of the visit to Newcastle, while Angelo Ogbonna, Manuel Lanzini and Andriy Yarmolenko are also doubts.

Predicted line-ups

Newcastle: Dubravka, Murphy, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Ritchie; Shelvey, Armstrong, Almiron; Saint-Maximin, Wilson

West Ham: Fabianski: Coufal, Diop, Dawson, Johnson, Masuaku; Soucek, Noble; Fornals, Lingard, Bowen

Odds

Newcastle: 13/5

Draw: 5/2

West Ham: 21/10

Prediction

In Jesse Lingard, West Ham have one of the hottest players in Europe right now and the Manchester United loanee’s confidence is flowing through the side. But West Ham can’t stop conceding, and with Callum Wilson and Alain Saint-Maximin back from the start, Newcastle are more than capable of taking advantage. Newcastle 2-2 West Ham
