Michael Owen has given his prediction for Monday night’s match.
The player turned pundit predicts a win for West Ham over Newcastle.
Owen says that if West Ham repeat the form they showed when beating Liverpool, then they ‘should be good for another three points’.
In his column for BetVictor, the former Newcastle striker doesn’t even give Newcastle a mention and hopefully the more people that write Newcastle off, the more it will inspire the players to prove them wrong.
Our old mate Harry Redknapp has also predicted that his old club will beat NUFC tonight and you can read what he had to say here.
The losses to Borunemouth and Leicester and conceding six goals at home in two games, must surely give Newcastle hope if they can find the right formula for goals.
In contrast to West Ham, Newcastle appear to have found some decent resolve at the back and have only conceded once in the two matches against Manchester United and Arsenal, despite player the Gunners with 10 men for over 75 minutes.
However, up front it has been dismal, in the three matches since the opening game against Southampton, Newcastle have managed only two shots on target and those were both run of the mill efforts against Swansea.
Check out the odds at BetVictor on West Ham v Newcastle at the bottom of this page, attractive odds if NUFC can add a bit of attacking nous.
“The Hammers must be something of a bookmakers’ dream and it must puzzle manager Slaven Bilic how they can lose at home to the likes of (no disrespect to) Leicester and Bournemouth yet beat the pair of Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates and Anfield!
“Providing West Ham play to the level that saw them turn over the Reds 3-0 they should be good for another three points on Monday night.”
