Anytime goal scorers
Newcastle- Allan Saint-Maximin. Saint-Maximin scored in his sides’ victory over Burnley and if there is somebody that is capable of unlocking the West Ham defence, it is him.
West Ham- Jesse Lingard. Lingard has been inspirational for West Ham since joining the club in January on loan from Manchester United. He has so far scored eight goals from nine league games for the Hammers and will be keen to add to his goals tally against Newcastle.
Our Odds And Tips In Detail
West Ham will be more fired up and are against a Newcastle side which has misfired in front of goal all season. I expect West Ham to dominate this game and record a 2-1 win.
