Eddie Howe has his Newcastle side very well drilled and they can be potent inside the final third as well.

David Moyes has made one change from the team that beat Everton two weeks ago at the London Stadium.

In comes Thilo Kehrer in place of Kurt Zouma. Meanwhile, Tomas Soucek has been dropped Fromm our win over Derby on Monday night.

The Hammers midfielders have to take the ball in tight areas from the defenders and as hard as it may be, they have to try and play through the press.

Let’s just hope that the players turn up and be counted.
