This is a big match for both, West Ham are just outside the "red light" group thanks to the difference while Newcastle need to win to consolidate their position in the top 4. David Moyes brought back Michail Antonio in the West Ham squad later. when there were 3 goals in the last 4 matches, while Newcastle also changed the position of the striker with the return of Callum Wilson, while the hero of the MU victory Joe Willock was hurt and was replaced by Joelinton.


The vertical post saved Newcastle from losing early in the 2nd minute before Guimaraes' attempt to break the ball almost turned into a counter-kick, but only 4 minutes later the away team opened the point. A free kick led to Saint-Maximin's cross and Wilson went unmarked as he headed into the top corner of the goal. In the 13th minute it was 2-0, Joelinton escaped from Schar's perfect pass and circled Fabianski to score, the referee ruled for offside but VAR showed that Joelinton was still above Emerson.

West Ham had difficulty in attacking but in the 40th minute they recovered a goal from the corner, Nick Pope made a mistake when he missed Bowen's hanging ball, causing Kurt Zouma to just shake his head into an empty net. But at the beginning of the first half, Newcastle had re-established the two-goal gap, Aguerd made a serious mistake for Murphy to steal the ball right in front of the penalty area and Murphy calmly passed Wilson to finish.

In the 55th and 59th minutes Fabianski played well to save Murphy's chances against Saint-Maximin, respectively. But in the 82nd minute, he "gifted" Newcastle again with a situation when he rushed out of the penalty area to block Guimaraes' pass, and the broken ball was taken advantage of by Isak by hitting the ball from about 30m into an empty net. That goal ended West Ham's hopes, and in the 90th minute Joelinton made it 5-1 with a pass through Coufal and Zouma to catch the ball from Guimaraes and finish Fabianski down.
