Newcastle United v West Ham United on TV: How to watch, what channel it is on plus stream details
Newcastle United host West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend with the opportunity of further boosting their survival hopes.
The Magpies’ 2-1 victory at Burnley opened up a crucial six-point gap over 18th placed Fulham with a game in-hand still to play.
However, that advantage can increase to nine before the Cottagers next kick a ball – if Steve Bruce’s side beat high-flying West Ham at St James’ Park.
Scott Parker’s men aren’t in action until Sunday when they travel to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.
