On Sunday, West Ham beat Newcastle, after an impressive turnaround.
West Ham was very good. I also think they were good in the first half, but then Newcastle was the same. After the break, West Ham was clearly the best, and should have won by several goals, as TV 2 football expert Simen Stamsø-Møller summed up after the match.
The home team had the best start at St James’ Park. Newcastle’s first goal of the season came after a very good preparation.
– It’s a magical moment!
Powerful dribbling Allan Saint-Maximin tricked Declan Rice with quick dance moves, before Callum Wilson specifically served up. A few centimeters from the goal line, the former Bournemouth player can easily control the ball into the goal with his head.
– It’s a magical moment! TV2 football expert Eric Thorstedt said about the French player’s preparations.

After a quarter of an hour, West Ham tied. It would take a minute for the ball to be in the net for Aaron Cresswell to delight in sending a fist into the air.
The goal was cleared for offside after questions were asked about whether Soucek was close to the ball before it ended in goal. After taking a look at the video images, Martin Atkinson still agreed on the goal.
Five minutes before the end of the first half, Newcastle again took the lead when Jacob Murphy bypassed the somewhat passive West Ham defense and headed the ball into the goal.
Thus, Newcastle can take a breather with the lead after a great run.
After the break, the match was turned upside down, after a harrowing 13 minutes for the home team.
Antonio kicks the ball into the goal
First Said Benrahma headed the equalizer before Soucek sent a return from the Michael Antonio penalty bar to the goal. But the West Ham striker made up for it with the penalty kick just three minutes later, when he hit the ball into the goal.
This was Antonio’s 47th goal in the Premier League with West Ham. Thus, he touched the record set by Paulo Di Canio for the London team.
There were no more goals in the match which ended with West Ham winning 4-2.
