West Ham vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Feb 19. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

West Ham vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Feb 19. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After being held away at Leicester on Sunday, West Ham will consider that result as two points dropped and with the race for fourth place now intensifying, one wonders just how important that result will be at the end of the season.

While when it comes to important results, Newcastle picked up another huge win that same Sunday afternoon and all of a sudden, the mood within the Magpies camp is a highly optimistic one.

West Ham Win

Although Newcastle have built a head of steam in recent times, their success has come against teams that are in the bottom half of the table and therefore, this Saturday will offer a rather different test.

A test that sees Eddie Howe and his players travel to the English capital and face a West Ham side who are once again enjoying playing in front of their own fans at the London Stadium.

Which means when looking at the betting sites, there is one outcome that stands out and that is backing the Hammers to win at odds of 17/25 with bet365 - a punt that is worth putting on your weekend accumulator.

West Ham Form, squad news, opinion

Although West Ham ended the last round of Premier League fixtures in fourth, they will now nervously wait for Manchester United to play host to Brighton on Tuesday and if the Red Devils pick up a home win, they will leapfrog the Hammers.

However, United’s form has not been much to write home about in recent times and earning a home win is by no means a given and if West Ham can keep their noses ahead of the chasing pack, it will give them a big lift before the visit of Newcastle on Saturday.

Because there is no doubt that West Ham have been something of a mixed bag as of late and with just three wins from their last six league outings, there is a feeling that they will be caught in the end.

Then again, Hammers fans will argue that no single team is making a clear case to finish fourth at the end of the season and the more points that are dropped by West Ham’s rivals, the greater chance of Champions League football at the London Stadium.

If that is to be the case, then fixtures such as this, are the ones that must be won without question and although salvaging a point away at Leicester last weekend will feel like some form of success, it is league wins that will ultimately make all the difference.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Newcastle, David Moyes has no new injury concerns after the Hammers 2-2 draw with Leicester and once again, Angelo Ogbonna is the only absentee for the Scot to worry about.

Newcastle Form, squad news, opinion

With three successive Premier League wins under their belt, Newcastle are now a team transformed and with the Magpies now possessing a four-point cushion over Norwich, the clouds have started to break on Tyneside.

Because in a season that has been full of frustration, Eddie Howe’s efforts as manager are now starting to pay dividends and suddenly, Newcastle are no longer locked in for relegation to the EFL Championship.

Looking at the Premier League odds for the to be relegated market, Newcastle have lengthened to odds of 4/1 and suddenly the betting sites are more confident of survival at St James’ Park.

However, the work is still far from done and although the 40-point marker is likely to not be reached by any of the clubs in the bottom three, Newcastle still need to add a considerable number of points to their tally before the end of the campaign.

Looking at their current situation, you get the feeling that five more league wins would be enough to secure their status in the division and if that proves to be the case, the next phase of this exciting project will soon begin.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to West Ham, although Newcastle got the better of Aston Villa on Sunday, it may have come at a cost and with both Kieran Trippier and Javi Manquillo going off injured, manager Eddie Howe must deal with an even longer injury list.

History

When it comes to the history of these two clubs, both West Ham and Newcastle are two of the more established outfits within the confines of English football and any meeting is one that is always highly anticipated.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, West Ham have won on 43 occasions, Newcastle 58 and there have been 38 draws

About the Venue

When West Ham first left their previous Upton Park home, many fans felt anger at the club’s owners and for a while, their new London Stadium base could only be considered as an alien location.

However, with the club’s fortunes improving across the past couple of years, supporters have started to take to London Stadium and now the ground is becoming something of a fortress.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

This is now shaping up to be a high stakes match on Saturday - albeit for different reasons and with both clubs looking to pick up maximum points in East London, something will soon have to give.

For West Ham, it is a case of rejuvenation and thrusting new life into their bid for Champions League football next season. While for Newcastle, a fourth successive Premier League win, is one that would be highly welcomed, as they look to pull further clear of the bottom three.
