As we suspected, Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey come into the midfield for the Longstaff brothers. Other than those two, it’s an unchanged side from last week’s draw against Wolves.
The front trio of Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, and Almiron will get another opportunity to try and get some goals. Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle will be ready to come on from what is a decent substitute’s bench.
Here is who Manuel Pellegrini will send out for West Ham.

This is another opportunity that Newcastle must take to get some points on the board. West Ham have struggled over the past four league matches with just two points. Let’s hope the lads can stretch that to five games without a win for the Hammers.
Howay The Lads!
