Buoyed by clinching a place in the League Cup final in midweek, Newcastle’s focus returns to their top four push on Saturday when the Magpies host West Ham.
It has been a season to remember so far for the Tynesiders, who reached their first major final since 1999 with a 3-1 aggregate win over Southampton and sit third in the Premier League table.
Eddie Howe’s side are unbeaten in 15 league games and have kept more clean sheets than any other team in the division, with 12 to their name.
West Ham are struggling at the other end of the table but followed up a crucial 2-0 win over Everton with an FA Cup victory against Derby County last weekend.
Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.
Bruno Guimaraes is suspended after being sent off in the League Cup win over Saints, while Alexander Isak is a doubt and Emil Krafth, Matt Targett and Javier Manquillo are injured.
January signing Anthony Gordon could make his Newcastle debut following his arrival from Everton.
West Ham are without Maxwel Cornet, Gianluca Scamacca and Kurt Zouma, while their new recruit Danny Ings is also a major doubt.

Kick-off and channel
Newcastle United v West Ham kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT on Saturday 4 February. The game is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab) in the United Kingdom.
In the US, kick-off time is 12.30pm ET / 09.30am PT. The match will be shown on NBC in the US. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
