Newcastle United: Predicted starting line-up vs West Ham United

Newcastle United take on West Ham United in the Premier League later today, and the Magpies will be hoping to build on their win over Burnley last time out.

Steve Bruce’s side head into the game 17th in the table, and their position in the Premier League is not safe yet.


They face an in-form West Ham side and the Magpies will have to be at their best to grind out a result here.

Newcastle have an excellent head-to-head record against the Hammers, winning three and drawing one of the last four meetings with the London side.

The last time these two sides met, Newcastle picked up a 2-0 win away from home, and they will be hoping for more of the same today.

The Magpies have drawn their last three Premier League home matches, and they will be keen to grind out a positive result here.

The home side will be without Fabian Schar, Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles, and Ryan Fraser due to injuries.

Predicted Newcastle starting line-up: Dubravka, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Murphy, Almiron, Shelvey, Longstaff, Ritchie, Saint-Maximin, Wilson.

Bruce is likely to make two changes to the side that beat Burnley.

Joelinton and Dwight Gayle started that game, but they are likely to make way for 24-year-old winger Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson this week.
