Newcastle United (WLDWW) and West Ham United (WLLLW) will meet on Sunday, July 5th for an English Premier League match. The match is scheduled for a 9:00 AM EST start time and it will be played at St. James' Park.
Newcastle United is coming off a blowout victory over AFC Bournemouth in its last game. Newcastle United took down Bournemouth by the final score of 4-1, as it was all Newcastle United the entire match. Newcastle United scored two goals inside the first 30 minutes of play, with the first goal scored in the 5th minute (Dwight Gayle). The final score looked as if it was going to be 4-0, but in the 90+4 minute, Bournemouth's Dan Gosling scored a goal to take away the clean sheet from Newcastle United. Newcastle United is currently 13th in the English Premier League standings.
West Ham United stunned the entire soccer world on Wednesday, as they took down The Blues of Chelsea by the final score of 3-2. West Ham United would not give up in this match, as its determination won them this game. This was a much-needed win as well, as it very well may save West Ham from relegation. West Ham actually scored four goals in this match, as the first goal from Tomas Soucek was disallowed due to VAR for offsides. West Ham was not discouraged after allowing a Chelsea goal via penalty, as the team roared back to tie the game at 1-1 at halftime. West Ham magic and Chelsea blunders were enough in the second half to give West Ham the historic and memorable win. West Ham United still has some work to do if they want to survive relegation, but if they play as they did on Wednesday, they will be safe.
The last time Newcastle United and West Ham United played against each other was on November 2nd of 2019. That match resulted in a 3-2 win for Newcastle United on the road.
In this game, I think both teams will have their fair share of scoring chances throughout the match. I cannot confidently take a side in this match, as I see both teams as pretty even. I will side with the draw in this match, and I will expect a 1-1 final score.
