Yet another inspiring display from Allan Saint-Maximin saw Newcastle come from behind to win a crucial six-pointer towards the bottom end of the Premier League table.
That takes their points per game to 1.34 when he’s been involved since the start of last season, to just a mere 0.68 without him, a remarkable 97% positive swing.
It has gone from good to great for West Ham. They beat Leicester at the weekend and closed the gap to the Foxes in third place to just one point.
It has been a Jesse Lingard inspired run for the Hammers, with the England international providing eight goals and four assists from his nine appearances since arriving at London Stadium, five of those goals coming from his last four outings, netting in each.
David Moyes’s men have gone W5-D1-L2 from their last eight matches dating back to mid-February, only losing to the Manchester clubs while the draw came against an Arsenal side when letting a three-goal lead slip.
Handicap Draw +1
Only Manchester Utd have lost fewer games than the Magpies over the last six games, although with only one of those fixtures came against a top half outfit, and with that it was a lacklustre Spurs side.
In fact, against the top six in the table, they’re a woeful W1-D1-L6 this term, but that one win did come against their next opponents back in September.
They do hold a favourable W4-D1-L1 in their six meetings since the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign, although they’re winless against their visitors at St James’ Park over that period.
By contrast, the Hammers have won five of their last seven unbeaten outings against the bottom six outfits and look to be building some serious momentum at the minute.
They will be concerned about the fitness of Mark Noble who got injured when filling in for Declan Rice against Leicester, but he’s looking more and more likely to be available.
Handicap Draw +2
Newcastle will be buoyant by the return of their more attacking players Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron and Saint-Maximin.
That has to give them a chance in any game, but it seems West Ham are yet again looking a touch on the long side in the outright market considering how impressive they have been.
With that in mind, we like the look of the winning margin too. Six of the Hammers’ last seven games have had a maximum of one goal separate the teams, including three of their four wins over that time, with the only victory not to go to the wire being a 2-0 win over Leeds.
Newcastle have lost by exactly one or two goals in eight of their last 10 defeats, including all their last five losses against the top six.
