THE PREDICTION

West Ham managed to pull out an outstanding performance from nowhere in midweek as they picked up a deserved 3-2 win over Chelsea. That has lifted them away from the drop zone and given them a three-point advantage but they cannot rest on their laurels even if results did go their way on Saturday. They make the trip up north to face a Newcastle side who beat Bournemouth 4-1 away at the weekend which highlights just how dangerous they are right now. Steve Bruce’s men are unbeaten in five at home and are playing a much more attacking style now. Combined with West Ham’s poor defending, that should make for an open game so expect both teams to score.
