As often in recent seasons, West Ham disappointed last year despite a quality workforce. The London team once again flirted with the red zone and finished 16th in the Premier League with 5 units ahead of the 1st relegation. Authors of a good restart after confinement, the Hammers have validated their maintenance by losing only one of their last 7 league games, for 3 wins and 3 draws. West Ham hopes to perform better this season and get closer to the first half of the table, which would be more in line with its budget. In friendlies, the Hammers beat 3 teams from lower divisions before ending in a loss to relegated Bournemouth (3-5).

This Saturday, Newcastle begins its 4th season in a row within the elite. Last year, the Magpies did not really take part in the fight for maintenance as they finished 13th in the standings with a comfortable mattress 10 points ahead of the relegation zone. Little concerned by the end of the disputed season after the restart, they have not won in the last 6 days (2 draws and 4 defeats). For this new season, Newcastle once again aims to avoid the descent without too much problem. Like West Ham, the club played 4 friendlies. If the Magpies started their preparation with 2 victories against very small teams Crewe and Barnsley, they fell against historic Stoke City and Middlesborough.

The workforce for Newcastle vs Blackburn

For West Ham, no major departures or arrivals have yet to be reported. Last year, the young English international Declan Rice (20) was the most used element in the league and it will perhaps be difficult to resist the many requests before the end of the transfer window. Impressive on the resumption of last season, the versatile Michail Antonio is still there as the Spanish playmaker Pablo Fornals and the French striker Sébastien Haller, from whom we expect better this season. Behind, the former Toulouse Issa Diop has emerged as a central hinge alongside the experienced Angelo Ogbonna. For this first match, only midfielder Lanzini is uncertain.

Newcastle have not lost an important player for the moment except the loaned Lazaro, Williams, Bentaleb and Danny Rose, but on the other hand wanted to reinforce a failing attacking sector last year (4th worst attack in the Premier League) . In this sense, striker Callum Wilson has come to solidify the ranks of the Magpies, he who scored 14 league goals in 2018/2019 and 8 goals last year, just like his friend from Bournemouth, attacking midfielder Ryan Fraser. Wilson comes to a priori take the place of the young Brazilian Joelinton (22) who did not meet expectations at all. The former Niçois Allan Saint-Maximin was not very decisive but he has, by sequences, displayed his talent. He is set to play an important role this season along with goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, defenders Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez and midfielders Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey and Miguel Almiron. Note also the recruitment of promising left side and North Irish international Jamaal Lewis (Norwich) and Irish international Hendrick (Burnley). For this first trip of the season, executives Dubravka, Schar, Dummett, Gayle and Longstaff are absent. Potential incumbents Ritchie and Clark, and rookie Fraser are uncertain.
