Newcastle United will face off against West Ham United at the London Stadium this Sunday afternoon as they look to secure a positive result on the road in the Premier League. The Magpies secured an impressive 4-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in midweek which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game.
Eddie Howe will set his men up in a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a couple of changes to his first XI for this game. Both Elliot Anderson and Jacob Murphy will get a chance to play from the start of this contest.
4-3-3 Newcastle United Predicted Lineup To Face West Ham United
Nick Pope will operate in between the sticks for the Magpies after shipping in one goal in his last outing. Fabian Schar will resume his partnership with Jamaal Lascelles at the heart of Howe’s defence as they look to keep the West Ham attackers at bay during the game.
Kieran Trippier will be a nailed-on starter as the right-back while Dan Burn hopes to give a good account of himself as the left-back. Howe will ask both of them to keep things solid at the back and offer some decent service to the front players.
Matt Targett and Lewis Hall will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Elliot Anderson, Bruno Guimaraes and Sean Longstaff will make up Newcastle’s midfield as they focus on making life difficult for the opposition at the centre of the park. All three of them need to be at the top of their game if the Magpies want to earn a good result at the London Stadium this weekend.
Sandro Tonali will have to settle for a spot on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the second half if needed.
Jacob Murphy could get a chance to impress as the left-winger while Miguel Almiron looks to make a difference for Newcastle on the right flank.
Alexander Isak will lead the line for the Tyneside club down the middle. He failed to register a goal in midweek and would be eager to find the back of the net versus the Hammers this Sunday.
Callum Wilson is a major doubt for this game as he is struggling with a thigh injury.
