West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic to hip-ing to start against Newcastle

West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic to hip-ing to start against Newcastle

Hernandez and strike partner Marko Arnautovic continued to torment their markers after the break and the Mexican missed two gilt-edged chances before they combined to devastating effect for the second goal in the 63rd minute. "We were good enough in the first half".

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.

Newcastle had gone into the game on the back of three successive wins, but were undone within 12 minutes when Hernandez steered home Robert Snodgrass' cross, and all but beaten when he converted from Marco Arnautovic's flick.

Perez headed over from close range after meeting Ritchie's 27th-minute corner and then dragged a shot wide, but his side was living dangerously and Arnautovic might have increased the Hammers' lead in the meantime had either Aaron Cresswell or Anderson been able to produce a better final ball.

"We felt confident beforehand, especially at home".

"There was stuff there we should be proud of".

"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".

The task for West Ham the defender feels will be to play with full concentration for the full 90 minutes and not drop important points that they have been dropping this season.

Anderson, 25, joined the club from Lazio in the summer for a reported fee of £36million.

"He scored a great goal, is working hard for the team and is enjoying his football".

"He's a very professional player".

"I'm sure we will see the best of Felipe in the games ahead".

"I hope we are conscious tomorrow about that". But after Hernandez made it 2-0, Newcastle's heads dropped and the wind was really taken out of their sails.

"But I know he's a scorer and a player who plays very well inside the 18-yard-box, so I started with him today because before that he was not able to play a complete game".

'We gave him an extra day to recover from the game on Saturday but he is okay'.

"And, of course, when everyone does that, and collectively you're good, invariably you get the right result".
