Newcastle United offset West Ham to Eye Relegation Exit
Howe’s side is unbeaten in the league since the turn of the year despite this result bringing their three-game winning run to an end. West Ham United was put in front by Craig Dawson with a well-headed effort.
The cross came from Aaron Cresswell’s enticing free-kick after goalkeeper Martin Dubravka had earlier tipped a Jarrod Bowen effort onto the crossbar.
But the visitors capitalized on a defensive error from West Ham skipper Declan Rice a few minutes before halftime as former Arsenal player Joe Willock guided a deft finish onto the far post and watched it creep narrowly over the line.
Newcastle United remains 17th but is now five points clear of Norwich, while David Moyes’s side has missed the chance to return to a Champions League place and stay fifth.
