West Ham v Newcastle: what the stats say

West Ham are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games against Newcastle, though the last two have ended level (W1). They last had a longer such run against the Magpies between February 1998 and October 2000 (6).
Newcastle have won 10 Premier League away games against West Ham, only winning more away games against Tottenham Hotspur in the competition (11).
Newcastle haven’t lost any of their four away Premier League matches in London this season (W2 D2), beating Fulham and Spurs while drawing with Arsenal and Crystal Palace. The Magpies last went five unbeaten in the capital between May 2013 and January 2014.
Newcastle have lost just one of their last 10 Premier League away games (W5 D4), going down 2-0 at Man City last month. Overall, no side has lost fewer games on the road this season than the Magpies (2).
West Ham are unbeaten in their last five Premier League home games, winning three of them (D2), as many as they had in their previous 12 at the London Stadium beforehand (W3 D3 L6). The Hammers have also kept three clean sheets in this run, as many as they had in their previous 16 home league matches before this.
Newcastle have won each of their last three Premier League games, scoring exactly twice each time. The Magpies last won four straight matches in the competition while scoring at least twice in each victory in April 2012 under Alan Pardew (run of 5).
Six of West Ham’s seven Premier League wins this season have come at home (86 per cent) – no side has a higher such ratio in 2022-23. In fact, 11 of the Hammers’ last 13 league wins have been at the London Stadium, including each of their last six, the first time they have had six top-flight wins in a row all coming at home since a run of nine in succession from November 2009 to November 2010.
Newcastle striker Callum Wilson has scored 10 Premier League goals against West Ham, more than he has against any other side. His first ever top-flight goals came away against the Hammers, netting a hat-trick at Upton Park with Bournemouth in August 2015.
West Ham’s Danny Ings has scored three Premier League goals against Newcastle, scoring those goals with a different club each time (Burnley, Southampton, Aston Villa). Only Robbie Keane (Coventry, Leeds, Spurs, Aston Villa) and Peter Crouch (Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Stoke) have scored against the Magpies with four different clubs in the competition.
Alexander Isak has scored three goals in three away Premier League starts for Newcastle United, netting both goals in their 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest in March. Despite playing just 293 away minutes, only Miguel Almirón (6) has more away Premier League goals for the Magpies this season.
