Newcastle line-up and substitutes:

West Ham welcome Newcastle to the London Stadium in the Premier League today.

The Hammers will be desperate for a win, having taken just two points from their last four Premier League games.

 

Manuel Pellegrini’s men sit in 10th spot in the table, but can climb as high as fifth with a win today.

The Magpies, meanwhile, will be equally keen to secure all three points.

Steve Bruce’s side have taken only five points from their last five outings, and they are hovering just outside of the relegation zone.

Newcastle will likely put 10 men behind the ball and play for the draw. So West Ham will have to take the game to the visitors.

The Hammers are very strong at home against the Toon. The North East outfit have only won twice in east London since 2010.

The game kicks off today at 15:00, and it should be an intriguing contest at the London Stadium.
