West Ham v Newcastle: Hammers look vulnerable against in-form Magpies
West Ham have been far from convincing in recent times and are worth taking on against rejuvenated Newcastle, says Dave Tindall...
Hammers still in race but fourth but form a concern
This is the first of two back-to-back home games (Wolves travel to the London Stadium next Sunday) and probably four points at the very least are a must if West Ham are serious about finishing fourth.
Magpies taking flight
Eddie Howe's men can now be fairly described as one of the Premier League's form teams. That's due to three straight wins which have lifted them four points clear of the drop zone.
West Ham worth opposing
It must also be a plus that they've won their last two away games at West Ham: 2-0 last season and 3-2 in the 2019/20 campaign. For balance, the Hammers beat Newcastle 4-2 at St James's Park in August.
Bowen best option for Bet Builder
But, on current form, Jarrod Bowen is the standout after scoring seven in seven games. The 9/5 for him to add another seems more than fair.
