The Hammers made the long journey up to St James’ Park to take on the Magpies in the two o’clock kick-off this afternoon.

And wow, what a game!

Newcastle took the lead early on before an Aaron Cresswell goal pegged them back.

The Toon then scored just before half-time but everything changed after the restart.

West Ham equalised through a Said Benrahma header before Tomas Soucek followed up from Michail Antonio’s missed penalty to make it 3-2 to the visitors.

Antonio then made it 4-2 after a lightning quick break and a perfectly judged Benrahma through ball.

Gary Lineker reacts to Newcastle vs West Ham clash

The Hammers picked up where they left off last season. If David Moyes manages to bring in a few players before the transfer window closes, we have a great chance of another top six finish.

The three points today was a a great way to start. The game probably hinged on the penalty decision in the 63rd minute.

It really was one that could have gone either way. Thankfully, Martin Atkinson gave the decision in our favour, and it was a crucial turning point in the match.
