NEW Vs WHU Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Derby win gives West Ham’s struggling and crumbling season a massive shot in the arm
With 0 goals in three encounters and no wins in those clashes, West Ham went onto take on Chelsea in their derby in horrendous form. Stuck in a pickle, time was running out and running out fast for the club, form which saw them sitting perilously close to the relegation zone.
It was a match where no one gave the club any chance, a fixture set to be a foregone conclusion with West Hamm set to be toyed around by Chelsea. However, when the chips are down and everything is going against you, there’s only one way to silence the naysayers with West Ham showing exactly how it’s done.
The club went about its business quietly, pulling off an unprecedented 3-2 win against Chelsea on the day. The result was a colossal win for the side, one which not only accords them with a fresh breath of life this season but also shows that this is a club well adept at embarking on a late surge and rolling in constant flow of points as the league traverse towards its conclusion.
While West Ham are set to be buoyed by that performance, a display which will bolster and propel them when they step out to the middle today, Newcastle United is not going to be any easy opponent by any means. This is a team currently unbeaten in its last five encounters with the 4-1 trouncing doled out to Bournemouth the last time around showing just how good the side has been since the restart.
Goals were a problem for the home side all season long and with the floodgates opening in that department, the side should have little qualms in quashing West Ham on the day.

NEW Vs WHU Dream11 Picks
We are going to be opting for West Ham’s Lukasz Fabianski are our shot stopper for the imminent encounter. The goal-keeper was in scrumptious touch the last time around, keeping out a late onslaught by Chelsea, one which saw his side stay in the game and eventually accord them with the opportunity to stun Chelsea late on.
West Ham might have gone onto score three past Chelsea the last time around but that does little to deter us when roping in a trivalent of players from Newcastle United. Those goals were born out of Chelsea’s horrendous defensive mistakes, goals which do little to disguise the fact that West Ham had failed to score in three successive encounters prior to that.
And with Newcastle Untied being a relatively stringent backline to scour past, the likelihood of West Ham’s attacking travesties returning today is way too likely. It’s a narrative which sees us repose faith in Federico Fernandez, Danny Rose and Jamaal Lascelles from the home side for the forthcoming clash.
Newcastle United’s entire electric form since the Premier League has returned has squarely been due to Allan Saint-Maxim. The player has been in the form of his life in the bygone three encounters, registering a hattrick of assists the last time around to finally show why he’s considered to be a player to keep an eye out.
The side’s top scorer with the five goals, Jonjo Shelvey makes an advent into our side as well alongside Miguel Almiron who has the three goals this season for the club. From West Ham on the other hand we are going to be venturing in with Felipe Anderson who has the four assists with CDM Declan Rice being brought in to partner him up.
After assisting against Chelsea the last time around, Michail Antonio showed why he can be such a threat when it comes to the attacking ambit of the game. Elsewhere, with West Ham leaking goals left, right and centre this season, Dwight Gayle from the home side will be wrapping up proceedings for us for the upcoming clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
The three goals and four assists he has this season see us move in with Allan as our side’s captain while Almiron is the vice-captain.
