West Ham insider ExWHUemployee has taken to Twitter this morning, and admitted his surprise at something Manuel Pellegrini has done regarding team selection for this afternoon’s clash with Newcastle United.

The Hammers desperately need a win, having taken just two points from their last four Premier League games.

The Magpies could do with one too, however. They are currently sitting just outside the relegation zone.

West Ham obviously have the ability to beat Newcastle, but the Toon will be well organised defensively, and they will make things hard for the hosts.

Pellegrini might just be keen to make some changes from the side that drew with Sheffield United last weekend.

And ExWHUemployee admitted on Twitter that he is surprised by what the Chilean has done regarding team selection ahead of the Newcastle game…

So it seems as though Pellegrini has made at least a couple of big changes for today’s game.

Quite who the Chilean has decided to bring in, however, is a mystery. And Ex’s tweet today has certainly added some intrigue to the build up to today’s clash with Newcastle.
