BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts West Ham’s Saturday game against Newcastle at London Stadium.
“ Just when I thought West Ham were about to push on, they started a run that has brought only two points from their past four matches. ”
“ But while the Hammers are still horribly inconsistent, at least we know what to expect from Newcastle – they will come to London Stadium and try to park the bus. ”
“ Steve Bruce’s side cannot really do anything else, because they offer such little threat going forward – which is why I am backing West Ham, despite their poor form. ”
