Newcastle welcome West Ham to St James’ Park in Saturday’s late kick-off as they look to further establish themselves in their Champions League race.

The Magpies are unbeaten since their late August defeat to Liverpool and are currently third, six points behind second-placed Manchester City and ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.

FA Cup victories over Brentford and Derby along with a decisive win against Everton have lifted the mood at West Ham, who are just above the relegation zone in 16th.

Newcastle squad news

Newcastle he has not played in the Premier League since a goalless draw against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on 21 January. They have since confirmed their place in the Carabao Cup Final, where they will face Manchester United at Wembley.

Manager Eddie Howe will pick a similar line-up to the one that finished in the semi-final against Southampton on Tuesday, although Bruno Guimaraes will be unavailable as he begins a three-match suspension after being sent off mid-week.

There could be a debut delivered at £45million by signing Anthony Gordon, who was unable to play against Southampton due to the draw.

Expected training of Newcastle against West Ham

Expected line-up Newcastle (4-3-3): Dad; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Joelinton, Long Stick; Willock; Almiron, Wilson, Gordon.

West Ham team news

January signing Danny Ings picked up a knee injury against Everton but has a chance to be fit in time, according to Hammers boss David Moyes. If he isn’t ready, Michail Antonio will lead the formation up front with Gianluca Scamacca also off the pitch.

Maxwel Cornet is nearing a return to fitness, having not played since October with a calf problem. He will also miss defender Kurt Zouma.

Expected training of West Ham against Newcastle

West Ham lineup prediction (3-4-2-1): Fabiansky; Aguerd, Ogbonna, sweeper; Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Emerson; Fornali, Bowen; Anthony.

Newcastle vs West Ham score prediction

On the current form, there is little to suggest West Ham will cause an upset at St James’ Park on Saturday. They are without a number of key figures in their squad and have not won an away Premier League win since a 1-0 win at Aston Villa in August.

Newcastle enjoyed another productive month in January, losing just one game – defeat in the FA Cup to Sheffield Wednesday – and kept clean sheets in each of their last six league games.

Guimaraes’ absence is an intriguing blow for the Magpies but they should have enough to hold off a struggling West Ham side.

Prediction: Newcastle 2-0 West Ham
