A win for West Ham at St James' Park this afternoon would take Sam Allardyce's side back into the top six of the Premier League.
However standing in their way are Newcastle United who go into the game one point and a place below the Hammers, who are set to start with former Mags Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll.
United's solid start to the season means that a win against Alan Pardew's team could see them rise above Fulham, Arsenal and Tottenham into the Europa Cup spots.
