Hernandez double helps West Ham to 3-0 win at Newcastle

The Premier League match between Newcastle and West Ham will be broadcast online.

Manuel Pellegrini brings his West Ham United to the north-east this weekend to take on Rafa Benitez's in-form Newcastle United team.

The Hammers, on the other hand, have picked up only a single win in their past six games and their last one was a drubbing at the hands of league leaders Manchester City.

However, they were guilty of basic errors at both ends of the pitch on Saturday and were punished as Hernandez - making only his third start of the campaign - scored in either half.

Yet the arrival of those late-comers coincided with the hosts falling behind in sloppy fashion.

"I think not only Felipe played well - I think Mark Noble played well, Robert Snodgrass played well, our defenders I was so happy with".

WEST Ham striker Marko Arnautovic is set to start against Newcastle tomorrow despite limping off with a hip injury last weekend.

"Javier has always been a very important player for us".

What does it mean?

West Ham made four changes as Cresswell, Noble, Snodgrass and Hernandez replaced Masuaku, Obiang, Diangana and Antonio. A run of matches against Cardiff City, Crystal Palace, Fulham, Watford, Southampton and Burnley, in addition to this contest, appears to give Pellegrini's team a real opportunity to climb the table. However, outside of Arnautovic and Anderson, West Ham do not have many viable scoring options.

Pablo Zabaleta got in a vital block on Salomon Rondon's stoppage-time effort, but Newcastle headed for the dressing room knowing they simply had not done enough during the opening 45 minutes.

"He was on the spot for the first goal, and the second one was a great finish".

The respite, however, was temporary and Hernandez finally increased his side's lead with 26 minutes remaining when Arnautovic put him in behind the Magpies defence and he beat the advancing Dubravka easily. Since winning their first game, the Magpies have won three straight games. "He is more used to the Premier League now and I agree that he is improving a little more in every game".

Is this, finally, the fabled new West... He scored one goal, he played a lot of important passes and he didn't lose the ball.

"He's just kept coming back for more".
