Our match prediction:
Newcastle United is visiting West Ham United in Boleyn Ground for round 5 in the British Premier League. Just like last season West Ham United is performing above expectations in the beginning of the league despite the loss of their super striker Christian Benteke. Newcastle United is continuing their last season poor form. With lots of new signings manager Steven McClaren did not manage to win any Premier League game yet. The Hammers will beat the Magpies with the help of their loyal fans. The clock is ticking for McClaren and his staff. A victory soon will be very necessary.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle United):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354. Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past. David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The colour of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
