West Ham can complete a Premier League double over Newcastle for the third time, having done so in 1999 and 2019. Also, 16 of the Hammers' league matches this season have seen both teams score, the most of any side.

Both teams to score is 3/4,

West Ham United to win and both teams to score is 5/2.

Jarrod Bowen bagged his 12th goal of the season last weekend and is 6/1 to break the deadlock and 15/8 to add to his tally.

Match preview

Will Newcastle United's revival continue?

Last weekend, the Magpies won again, this time beating Everton 1-0 at a raucous St James' Park thanks to Kieran Trippier's deflected free-kick.

This means the Toon Army have now won three successive matches, following victories over Leeds United and Aston Villa.

As a result, Eddie Howe's side are now out the drop zone, four clear of Norwich and danger.

Will Newcastle now win four successive league matches for the first time since March/April 2018?

West Ham United are doing what will surely become Newcastle's aim in coming years and that's attempting to break into the Champions League places.

Last weekend, the Hammers took the lead the the King Power, but found themselves 2-1 down to Leicester City by half time.

Nevertheless, they managed to leave the East Midlands with a point thanks to Craig Dawson's stoppage time equaliser, scrambling the ball in with his shoulder.

David Moyes' men have only won one of their last four but remain fifth, just two points behind Manchester United.

Despite the return of European football this week, West Ham were not in action as they've qualified directly for the Europa League round of 16.

They'll find out their opponents this forthcoming Friday lunchtime.

Here, which United will prevail at the London Stadium?

West Ham United team news

Kurt Zouma remains the man in the headlines for West Ham, as he has been ever since the release of that video in which he's abusing his cat.

Last Sunday at Leicester, the Frenchman pulled out in the warm-up, reportedly felling unwell, but is expected to return in place of Issa Diop here.

Elsewhere, the only mildly surprising team news was that Saïd Benrahma was on the bench with Manuel Lanzini getting a start.

The vast majority of this side is settled though, including Tomáš Souček who's scored in two of his four matches against Newcastle.

Michail Antonio will lead the line, looking to add to his two goals against the Magpies.

Newcastle United team news

Kieran Trippier scored a direct free-kick against both Everton and Aston Villa before hobbling off and he could now miss the rest of the season.

With Jonjo Shelvey having also converted a free-kick at Leeds, Newcastle can become the first team in Premier League history to score one in four successive matches.

It's not only Trippier who is out because the other starting full-back, Javi Manquillo, also went off injured against Aston Villa.

They're now short of options at the back with Ciaran Clark and Jamal Lewis having been left out the Premier League squad following January.

So, after coming off the bench last weekend, Paul Dummett and Emil Krafth could start this one.

In midfield, Bruno Guimarães has only made a pair of one minute substitute appearance since joining from Olympique Lyonnais.

However, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Brazilian Olympic Gold Medal winner came in for his first start in this one.

Chris Wood will lead the line, looking for his first goal for the club, with Callum Wilson out injured.

The latter is good news for West Ham because Wilson has scored nine goals against them, the most against any opponent.
