Newcastle failed to make the most of a dream start as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham that left them in fourth place in the Premier League.

Callum Wilson raced clear to put Eddie Howe’s team in front after three minutes, shortly after Joe Willock had a goal disallowed for the hosts. But West Ham recovered well and levelled just past the half hour mark through Lucas Paqueta.

Newcastle dominated the second half but could find no way through West Ham’s defence as they drew for the fourth time in five Premier League matches to extend their unbeaten league run to 16.

They are on 40 points from 21 games, two points behind Manchester United who beat Crystal Palace earlier in the day. West Ham are on 19 points from 21 games, one point above the relegation zone.

An intense duel on Tyneside sees the spoils shared, as Newcastle have to settle for a single point again - that's the Toon's 10th Premier League draw of the season. An explosive start subsided as West Ham played their way into the game, and having scored their equaliser, Moyes' boys held firm until full-time by virtue of some disciplined defending. Newcastle remain unbeaten in 16 top-flight outings, but are now down to fourth in the table; the Hammers sit just above the drop zone.

With the latest in a long series of free-kicks, Trippier pumps a long ball into the West Ham box, but his intended target, Burn, is beaten to the ball - the Hammers have held on, surely that's game over?

The Magpies' pressure is incessant now, as West Ham hang on determinedly for a point. Gordon has been very lively since coming on, and seems to be his new team's best hope of finding a way through.

Indicating the overall direction of play since the hour mark, Newcastle have attempted the last six shots on goal in this game.

After Gordon has a shot blocked behind for a corner, Schar heads over the top from the centre of the area following Trippier's corner.

SAVE! Trippier whips over a characteristically dangerous free-kick to the penalty spot, but an unmarked Wilson then plants his header straight at Fabianski, who is grateful to make a routine save!

For all their efforts to shift the ball around quickly, Newcastle are being kept at arm's length by West Ham's diligent defending - the visitors really have stuck to their task without wavering.

CLOSE! A delightful low throughball by Gordon splits open the West Ham defence, and with Wilson haring through on goal, Aguerd dives into a superb last-ditch tackle to surely save his team from conceding a second goal! The striker just delayed a split-second too long, and that was enough for the Morocco star to pounce!

Saint-Maximin opens his box of tricks on the left side of the area, but as he attempts to shimmy and jink past Coufal, the Czech defender puts in a perfectly-timed challenge to nick the ball away from him.

Using all his experience, Emerson shepherds the ball out by using Almiron's shins as a backboard, having been in some trouble near the left byline. The Hammers still hold firm.

Howe looks on pensively from the touchline as his side still fail to wrestle back control of a game they once led. In fairness to Newcastle, their opponents have been very well organised since going behind.

With Wilson poised to plant a header at goal from six yards out, Aguerd intervenes with a timely leap and turns the ball away to relative safety - that's excellent defending.

Antonio tries to send Benrahma clear on the break with a hooked pass from the halfway line, but Trippier is alert to the danger and covers across from right-back just in time.

West Ham continue to move the ball about positively, and it is the away side that look most likely to create something in the early stages of this second half.

Bowen escapes a booking for shoving away Saint-Maximin's challenge with an outstretched palm to the French winger's face. Seconds later, Coufal blocks Saint-Maximin's hurried shot from the left side of the area at close range.

Driving at the Newcastle defence full tilt, Emerson progresses into the final third before Joelinton commits another foul and gives West Ham a free-kick.

Both Bowen and Coufal are not moving with full freedom at the moment, and injury could cause one or either to be withdrawn sooner or later.

Paqueta is felled by his fellow Brazilian, Joelinton. After flicking the ball up over his own head, the former is clipped by the latter and is awarded a free-kick out on the right flank.

While Newcastle had 66 per cent of the possession during the final 15 minutes of the half, West Ham have attempted the last six shots on goal. The Hammers were certainly the more threatening side during that spell, but can they continue in such a vein after the interval?

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

18:29 , admin

After a lightning-fast start featuring a disallowed goal and Wilson's subsequent strike, Newcastle then conceded their first league goal of 2023 and are forced to settle for parity at the half-time break. West Ham have recovered well from that early blitz, and a scrappy set-piece goal was welcome reward for their efforts. As a result, this contest is set up perfectly for an absorbing second half.

A typical Saint-Maximin surge own the left gets the home fans out of their seats for a second, but his misplaced cutback stalls Newcastle's attacking momentum. Can they find a way to go back in front before the break?

Longstaff tries to catch out Fabianski with a cheeky chip from near the right touchline, but the veteran goalkeeper is alert enough to scramble back and pluck the ball out of the sky just in front of his goal-line!

18:11 , admin

Cutting in from the left, sending Newcastle's defenders hurtling back towards their area, Benrahma reaches the edge of the box before scuffing a low shot well wide of the left-hand post.

18:10 , admin

Paqueta's goal sees Newcastle concede in the first half for the first time in 17 Premier League games. In addition, Pope's hopes of keeping seven successive Premier League clean sheets - which would have been a record for an English keeper - are ended.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

18:07 , admin

WEST HAM PULL LEVEL! Having earned the corner himself, Paqueta takes advantage of some static defending in the box to react first and turn the ball past Pope from close range. It was Rice's inswinging set-piece that caused such chaos in the Newcastle defence: 1-1 at St James' Park!

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

18:04 , admin

At the second attempt, Paqueta manages to get off a low shot at goal from the edge of Newcastle's box, but a deflection off Burn's outstretched leg carries the ball wide of the left-hand post.

Benrahma is back on the ball inside the hosts' final third, but having skipped by Trippier with a fleet-footed surge, his claims for a free-kick are ignored by the referee and the game goes on.

At the end of a flowing one-touch move from right to left, Benrahma takes Rice's pass in his stride but flashes a 20-yard shot well over Pope's crossbar. The Newcastle goalkeeper has had very little to do as yet.

18:00 , admin

The visitors are forced back into their defensive third again, as Newcastle carefully build attacking momentum - but without much sign of incision.

CLOSE! From a long-range free-kick Burn rises highest to flick the ball on into the box, and with Fabianski slow to react, Schar prods an improvised effort narrowly wide of the left-hand post!

Newcastle United have a record of six wins from six when scoring the opening goal at home in the Premier League this season, and last lost anywhere after opening the scoring back in August.

17:52 , admin

Wilson's miscontrol of a dropping ball into the box lets in Ogbonna, who rather fortunately bundles the ball away to safety rather than making inadvertent contact with his arm.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:50 , admin

A medical assessment clear Botman to resume his duties at the heart of Newcastle's defence, as the action resumes.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:49 , admin

Following a Coufal cross from the right, the ball bounces out to Paqueta, around 20 yards out from goal. The midfielder unleashes a powerful shot at goal, which arrows straight at Botman's head, knocking the Dutch defender down to the turf - the game is halted as a result.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:46 , admin

Antonio gets his first sniff of the ball, isolated in the opposition area, but a loose touch allows the well-placed Schar to nip in and clip the ball away to safety.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:44 , admin

A wickedly dipping cross from the inside-right position by Willock is glanced away by Ogbonna's head just as Wilson seems set to make contact near the penalty spot. West Ham then manage to get the ball clear.

Newcastle's rapid start has allowed them to slow the tempo over the following minutes, and they are now patiently probing just outside West Ham's area. Given their excellent defensive record, they will already be confident of defending this lead.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:41 , admin

Having regained their bearings following an awful start, West Ham now rotate the ball around the centre of the pitch, with Newcastle happy to drop off a little.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:40 , admin

After today's early strike, Wilson has now scored 10 goals in 12 Premier League appearances against West Ham, more than versus any other side. Indeed, his first ever goals in the competition were a hat-trick against the Hammers.

Newcastle United vs West Ham United

17:38 , admin

NEWCASTLE LEAD! Now, the hosts have a goal which will stand! Some slack defending just inside the West Ham half allows Longstaff to pick out a low pass for Wilson, who races clear of the defence and slots the ball into the bottom-left corner!

NO GOAL! Upon review, it seems that Almiron hadn't kept the ball in play before crossing, so Newcastle's early opener is ruled out!

17:35 , admin

NEWCASTLE START FAST! Within a minute of kick-off, the Magpies find the net! Willock coolly takes Almiron's cutback from the right byline in his stride, then fires the ball past Fabianski! Was the ball over the line before Almiron's pass, though? The VAR will decide!
