Newcastle At West Ham – Poll Result, Predictions, and Injuries

This is the lineup we have predicted for today’s match at West Ham. It has two changes in the midfield with Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey coming in for the Longstaff brothers.

We think Steve Bruce will involve Jonjo Shelvey from the start. Yesterday, he revealed that Issac Hayden would retain his place now that his 3-game suspension is over.

Unfortunately, this means there would be no place for young Matty Longstaff who we think may be on the bench at the start of this one. Of course, Sean Longstaff faces his own three-match ban which will begin today.

Despite the issues with scoring goals, we don’t think Steve Bruce is going to make any changes to the front three. We also see Federico Fernandez keeping his place as Fabian Schar struggles with his knee problem.

Injury-wise it’s down to just three this week with Andy Carroll coming back into the squad. It’s too soon for Matt Ritchie and Florian Lejeune.

West Ham will be missing midfielder Jack Wilshire who is out along with three other long-term casualties.

Newcastle Injuries

Florian Lejeune – knee, Matt Ritchie – ankle, Fabian Schar – knee

West Ham Injuries

Michail Antonio – hamstring, Jack Wilshire – groin, Winston Reid – knee, Lukasz Fabianski – hip

The result of the poll shows that 44% of the 1156 total voters think Newcastle will lose against the Hammers today. However, 55% believe Newcastle will at least get a result, with 378 voters going for the full three points.

We are in the camp of those who think the lads can get a result today. A win likely won’t see us climb the table too much, but if we could get a couple on the trot, that would make things a lot more comfortable. We are still only 4 points behind 7th place Manchester United, so there is hope.

This is the stage last season when the lads went on a three-game win streak. Maybe lightning can strike twice, and we can start with a result at London Stadium.

How Will Newcastle Do At West Ham On Saturday?

  • Lose (44%, 511 )
  • Win (33%, 378 )
  • Draw (23%, 267 )

Total Voters: 1,156

    Someone in work is friends with a personal fitness coach who works with Shelvey a lot said he’s an absolute nightmare. They will talk about fitness and eating plan one day then he finds out he has been eating junk food a lot of the time. I have no idea if this is true mind.

    As far as match result predictions go…
    My heart says 0-3, Carroll with a hat trick of towering headers.
    My head says 3-0, 29%possession and no shots on target

    Shelvey came on for 10 mins against Wolves and looked shattered. He has no heart what so ever and looks like a Jack Rodwell type at the moment.

    Wouldn’t drop Matty as he has the energy which we need in the “engine room” although I would consider playing Shelvey along with him and Hayden and go for a 3-5-2 leaving Almiron out for today. At the end of the day it’s one of the many fixtures that could go either way with both teams, in my opinion on a par. I’d go for a score draw.
