Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle v West Ham – The heat is on
The Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle United taking on West Ham.
It seems an awful lot longer than three and a half months ago when Newcastle lined up against the Hammers in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
NUFC winning 1-0 in that pre-season tournament losers final just after Steve Bruce was appointed.
Muto gettting the only goal of the game, will we ever see him again…?
West Ham were hammered 5-0 at home on the opening day of the season, Man City taking them apart.
However, they bounced back to be unbeaten in six games, three wins and three draws.
Recent times though mean they have been almost as bad as Newcastle in the Premier League form table.
Newcastle 16th ‘best’ with five points from a possible 18 and West Ham one point and one place better off.
This is normally the time when the table can start to show some shape, the Hammers having the carrot of knowing a win today could take them top six, whilst Newcastle have the stick to motivate then to get a win that would ensure no return this weekend to the relegation zone.
Out of their last 12 combined games, the two clubs have only two victories, both against Man Utd.
A win today for either team could be massive in terms of the season ahead.
Here is the Premier League form table which covers the past six matches for all teams:
