West Ham United vs. Newcastle United Prediction
Under David Moyes, West Ham United has flourished and can be a devastating force on their day. The Hammers, led by Tomas Soucek and Declan Rice, have established themselves as a powerful force and will be looking to make an impression this weekend.
Newcastle United have not been at their best over the past year and cannot afford to lose this game. West Ham United are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to win this game.
