Both teams desperately need the point in this game. Rafa Benitez and Slaven Bilic faced the disciplinary detours of their footballers after the Jordan Shelby captain and the recorder Marko Arnautovich were expelled from the grounds.
Against Tottenham Newcastle stood very well and countered the spurs successfully until Shelby was expelled. The Huddersfield show showed that Benitez's team is still not set for the Premier League and will need a lot of work. That is why the point in the upcoming West Ham game will be appreciated by all.
West Ham collapsed against Manchester United, but against the tough host Southampton showed character, and their new striker, Chicharito, demonstrated a goal shape. Newcastle's attack problems may have fallen for 90 minutes, given that Londoners have scored 7 goals in two games, so expect a tough and equal match.
