I watched several games of Newcastle and I assured in their offensive style of play. They always want to compete and score. more than their opponents. Newcastle easy score, but also they easy allowed opponent to score. Their goal difference in the previous eight matches is 12:12, an average of three goals per game. Both teams scored on their four of seven played matches, of which the last three matches. Absences: Ben Tozer, Danny Simpson, Hatem Ben Arfa, Steve Harper, Ryan Taylor, Dan Gosling - the first goalkeeper and even five defenders.
West Ham is on the bottom of the standing, with 6 scored and 15 received goals. On five their matches in the season both teams scored goals, on three of four matches played at home. Absences: Valon Behrami, Matthew Upson, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Anthony Edgar, Zavon Hines, Peter Kurucz, Jack Collison - even four midfielders and very important defender Upson.
And, finally, an interesting thing - the last five matches between these two teams ended with over 3.5 goals per each match, and on all those matches both teams scored goals. I expect such one match today, because it will be a struggle to escape from the bottom of league tables.
