BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Newcastle United vs

Newcastle and West Ham go head to head for their season openers, with six places separating them last season.

NEWCASTLE

Steve Bruce’s team had a nervy end to the season, but they pulled through at the end and secured 12th. At one point, they were in serious danger of going down.

Newcastle have a squad that is more than capable of staying in the Premier League, but a lot of the fans feel Bruce is the issue. This season fans will want their side to be pushing the top half and not leaving survival so late!

A full St James is a tough place to go and the fans will be full of noise welcoming back their side. The players will feed off of this and we see them going into this game looking to get all three points.

WEST HAM

Last year was a fantastic year for The Hammers, who managed to get sixth place. David Moyes did very well with them and they finished just two points off of the top four.

It’ll be much of the same this season hopefully for West Ham fans. However, they did overachieve last year and sixth place of better this year could be a huge ask!

West Ham will fancy their chances against Newcastle. Moyes has made them a tough team to beat, with just 11 defeats all of last season. A draw wouldn’t be a terrible result but expectations could all depend on the transfer window.
