Watch: West Ham vs Newcastle Highlights (1-5) | Newcastle Best Moment on

Newcastle United thrashed relegation-threatened West Ham United 5-1 at the London Stadium as the Magpies’ pursuit of a first top-four finish in the Premier League (PL) since 2002/03 gained impetus. Callum Wilson and Joelinton each scored twice for Newcastle.

Irons manager David Moyes was aware of the significance of building on his team’s close win over Southampton given the two additional managerial losses that occurred in the Premier League over the weekend. A matchup with top-four contender Newcastle, led by Eddie Howe, however, looked to be a much tougher test. Newcastle has won three straight Premier League games, including a convincing victory over Manchester United the last time they played.

The early going was played at a frenetic tempo despite the importance of the match for both teams, with Bruno Guimares deflecting a dangerous cross from Jarrod Bowen into his own goal. Grateful for the early break, the visitors squandered no time establishing their dominance as Allan Saint-Maximin snuck past Saad Benrahma and lifted a deft delivery into an open Wilson, who calmly headed a composed header into the far corner.

After scoring their first goal, Newcastle quickly increased their advantage. Fabian Schär played a perfectly timed through ball into the path of Joelinton, who beat the offside trap and finished by slipping past Ukasz Fabiaski. After a disastrous first 20 minutes, this inspired the home team to pick up the pace, and despite Lucas Paquetá and Michail Antonio missing excellent opportunities, Kurt Zouma capitalized on Nick Pope’s error to halve the deficit at the half.

After regaining some composure in the midst of a chaotic first half, West Ham lost all control of the game within 30 seconds of the restart when Nayef Aguerd tragically mishandled the ball, enabling Jacob Murphy to set up Wilson for an easy goal. With just one loss in their previous 10 Premier League away games, Newcastle went up against a weak Hammers defense hoping to continue their winning streak. Fabiaski held firm to stop attempts from Murphy and Saint-Maximin.
