West Ham v Newcastle Football Betting Tips 14-09-2015
Newcastle make the long trip to London for this Premier League encounter with both sides having made contrasting starts to the season.
Newcastle head into this game in the relegation places, where perhaps they were lucky to escape from last season and West Ham sit comfortably mid table with the chance to leap Crystal Palace into fifth place with a victory tonight.
The Hammers have managed to start the season with two cracking away wins at top four sides, beating both Arsenal and Liverpool on their own turf and those results are something that under pressure Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers can only dream of reporting. No wonder he is favourite at 7/4 to be the next manager to leave his post.
Nine goals scored means West Ham have one of the best offensive records in the league but their home form to date has been disappointing with defeats to Leicester and Bournemouth blotting the copybook.
Newcastle have had a difficult to start to the season under manager Steve Mclaren and are win less after their recent 1-0 loss to Arsenal. They have only scored two goals and are struggling to create chances with last seasons top scorer Papa Cisse kicking his heels on the bench. Striker Mitrovic is suspended, starting a three match ban after being sent off against Arsenal.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is short of options in attack although Andy Carroll could make a welcome return from injury and Mauro Zarate could start after having missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.
With home advantage and buoyed by their recent victory over Liverpool I'm expecting West Ham to win their first home game of the season and pile on the misery for the Magpies.
