West Ham Boss On Selections For Win At Newcastle

West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic to hip-ing to start against Newcastle

"For sure, they'll not be in a relegation battle".

Hammers on the rise but can they win back-to-back?

The 25-year-old said: "It was great to be able to score first so we could use my characteristics and my team-mates to launch counter-attacks, and we were happy to be able to dictate the rhythm of the game".

Anderson told West Ham TV: "Certainly this season we haven't been able to be consistent". Both sides had nine shots in total and the Hammers had eight corners to City's one.

West Ham were equally as impressive in defence as going forward against Newcastle and a lot of credit has to go down to the rock solid Diop in the heart of defence.

West Ham had won only once at St James' Park in 20 years before their arrival and the ease with which they doubled their tally came as a shock to the Magpies, who were looking for a fourth successive league victory.

The goals are starting to be shared around a bit more now and the heavy reliance on Marco Arnautovic is lessoning.

Arsenal march on with their 19-match unbeaten run and they have their new manager to thank for their new-look mentality. Arsenal's next Premier League test is a trip to Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Andy Carroll took has done full training during the course of the week and like Wilshere, he too is expected to start the Newcastle vs West Ham game on the bench.

Newcastle did not win a game until their 11th game of the season.

Anderson was then denied by Dubravka but, after Newcastle failed to mount any sort of comeback, the Brazilian made it 3-0 in injury-time when he bundled past Fabian Schar and fired home.

Since a 2-0 defeat at Bournemouth on the opening day of the season, the Bluebirds have been beaten at Chelsea, Spurs, Liverpool and Everton but anything other than a loss in any of those fixtures would have been considered a shock result so there's an argument to be made that they're not as bad as their league position suggests.

Rafa Benitez says the money spent by West Ham United made all the difference at St James's Park. He couldn't keep the Magpies in the top flight, but did stay to guide them back at the first attempt the following season. Both will be assessed before Cardiff's visit.

"I can not complain of the effort of the players or the commitment but again today we had chances, but they scored theirs".

"To be fair, in the first half Newcastle created many more chances than West Ham, so they were lucky to go in 1-0 up at the break".
