Head to Head records: West Ham

Both teams will be going into Saturday's game with good reason for believing they can take a positive result away from the game as two teams in struggling form go up against each other.

A remarkable statistic about this fixture is that we have never played against West Ham outside of the league since the first league meeting in 1923. During this time, records would suggest that they have been fairly evenly matched throughout their respective histories.

It was back in December 2017, when Newcastle paid their first visit to the London Stadium since it opened in 2016. Newcastle came away from East London with all three points in a 3-2 win courtesy of goals from Henri Saivet (his only goal for the club), Mo Diame and Christian Atsu.

Regarding current form of the two sides, the Hammers have lost four of their last five matches, a run that began with their shock 4-0 defeat to Oxford in the EFL Cup. However, our own run of form is cause for concern with only one win since the bank holiday weekend win over Tottenham.
