West Ham host Newcastle with both sides eager to kickstart the new Premier League season in style this weekend. Neither was particularly impressive during a gruelling 2019-20 campaign for multiple reasons, but will be ambitious about their chances of breaking into the top-half.

West Ham finished five points adrift of Newcastle in 16th last term and haven't had the best offseason with some questionable transfer business. By contrast, Saturday's visitors suddenly find themselves on a roll despite their ongoing takeover saga with three eyecatching acquisitions in quick succession. Can either get off to a winning start? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

West Ham vs Newcastle Betting Tips

Bournemouth duo Ryan Fraser (free) and Callum Wilson (£20m), as well as Norwich fullback Jamal Lewis (£14.9m).

After an underwhelming finish once Project Restart got underway, suddenly the Toon Army have something to celebrate ahead of the new season. Wilson is tasked with the responsibility of improving a side whose top goalscorer was midfielder Jonjo Shelvey (6). Dwight Gayle, Joelinton and Andy Carroll had that figure combined.

He's set himself the ambitious but achievable target of reaching 100 Premier League goals – is already on 41 and after agreeing a four-year deal, can definitely do so.

Whether he stays fit or not though, is arguably crucial to his creative aspirations. He'll undoubtedly be helped by Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron, two big 2019 signings.

Watch how West Ham perform, after their three-match friendly win streak was snapped by Championship newcomers Bournemouth on September 5. Jarrod Bowen had a first-half brace, while second-half substitute Felipe Anderson also scored during their 5-3 defeat.

On paper, they have quality players but ultimately haven't meshed together well enough to sustain a good run of form throughout the season. Does that change, starting this weekend?

West Ham vs Newcastle Correct Score Predictions

Callum Wilson's scoring record against the Hammers – seven goals in eight – hasn't gone unnoticed, but Newcastle's pre-season friendly results don't exude confidence. Steve Bruce has some selection dilemmas to ponder and neither team are great defensively, so this should serve up goals.
