West Ham United vs Newcastle Prediction Preview

By the standards of the West Ham, taking on the mantle of crisis club before the season has even started takes quite some doing.  The supporters are quite unsatisfied with the unpopular owners' decision to hire the youngster Grady Diangana to West Bromwich Albion.

Tomas Soucek has been signed permanently, represents the West Ham United' only incoming activity since finishing 16th last season, 5 points above the relegation zone.

Hammers' side got off to a slow start last season, and it tends to be a theme for them in many ways. The team has lost their opening league match in the last four seasons.

West Ham United vs Newcastle United Team News

West Ham Newcastle prediction

In Hammers, Manuel Lanzini took a knock in pre-season and is doubtful to feature in West Ham's season opener. They come into the season on the back of a poor transfer window and have recently had two bids for Burnley defender James Tarkowski rejected.

They have, however, been able to make Tomas Soucek's loan move permanent.

Injuries: None

Doubtful: Manuel Lanzini

Suspensions: None

On the other hand, Newcastle has had many casualties.

Jamal Lewis is all set to feature for Steve Bruce's side as neither Matt Ritchie nor Paul Dummett is fit.

Martin Dubravka is set to miss out on the first few matches due to injury. 

Dwight Gayle is also out injured. 

Ryan Fraser will need to regain match fitness before he can feature as he missed out on a lot of football earlier this year.

Injuries: Martin Dubravka, Dwight Gayle

Doubtful: Paul Dummett, Ciaran Clark, Matt Ritchie, Fabian Schar

Suspensions: None

West Ham United vs Newcastle United Prediction
