Newcastle vs West Ham

If Craig Bellamy, Scott Parker, Nobby Solano and Lee Bowyer turn out on Sunday Newcastle fans could be forgiven for feeling a little confused as to which side they are supporting. Add the injured Dyer to the list and West Ham have half a team of ex-Toon players.

Perhaps this experience will help West Ham feel at home at St James' Park and aid us in achieving our first Premiership win over the Magpies in eight games. One of the most important factors in determining the win will be the fitness of two injured strikers. Newcastle have been making positive noises all week about Michael Owen's prospects of playing whilst the rumours about Bellamy have not been so promising. Zamora and Viduka both also face late fitness tests for the game.

West Ham have won their three away games this season (two in the league) whilst Newcastle are unbeaten at home in the league. I think most West Ham fans would be happy if we remain unbeaten away after this weekend.
