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.

West Ham were equally as impressive in defence as going forward against Newcastle and a lot of credit has to go down to the rock solid Diop in the heart of defence.

Snodgrass curled in a fine cross from the right and Hernandez ran behind a static defence to finish from close range.

Arnautovic superbly headed down a lofted West Ham clearance into Hernandez's stride and the 30-year old made no mistake as he drove the ball past Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka inside the near post.

Andy Carroll took has done full training during the course of the week and like Wilshere, he too is expected to start the Newcastle vs West Ham game on the bench. The Spaniard remains popular on Merseyside after winning the Champions League and FA Cup during six years in charge, but is less well-regarded at Chelsea despite winning the Europa League in his only season at the club.

Anderson was then denied by Dubravka but, after Newcastle failed to mount any sort of comeback, the Brazilian made it 3-0 in injury-time when he bundled past Fabian Schar and fired home. 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. Over 2 ½ goals is the odds-on jolly in the Over/Under 2.5 Goals market but less than three looks more likely and I'm happy to play Under 2.5 at [2.1].

The defending was poor from West Ham - simple things like tracking back and marking.

"Still I think we did well enough to create and then maybe to score, but we didn't do it and the second goal, it was very hard for us".

- West Ham's Felipe Anderson has scored four goals in his last four Premier League games having netted just one in his opening 10 appearances in the competition for the Hammers. He then made little impression after the break and was replaced by Joselu with 12 minutes remaining.

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.

West Ham's Javier Hernandez has scored 48 Premier League goals with all of those strikes coming from inside of the box - only Tim Cahill (56) has scored more goals in the competition with 100% of them coming from inside of the box.
