Felipe Anderson celebrates his goal with Declan Rice

Javier Hernandez reportedly wants out of West Ham United at the earliest possible opportunity after being restricted to just three league starts this season. What they spend, what we spend, you can see that on the pitch.

Some Newcastle United fans walked in late to a match in a protest against the club's owner. Only six clubs have allowed fewer goals than Newcastle have this season. "The difference between teams is not too much, but, in general, the league is tough".

Perez dragged a shot wide later in the half while Salomon Rondon saw an effort brilliantly blocked by a sliding Pablo Zabaleta.

Hernandez had a golden chance to double his tally in the 58th minute, only to fire into the side-netting following a delightful reverse pass from Felipe Anderson.

Anderson was then denied by Dubravka but, after Newcastle failed to mount any sort of comeback, the Brazilian made it 3-0 in injury-time when he bundled past Fabian Schar and fired home.

West Ham defender signed for £22million (BBC) in the summer from Toulouse and he looks like an incredible investment for the club. Over their last four games, West Ham have picked up five points. "We were good enough in the first half".

Perez endured a torrid time in front of goal during the first half, initially heading over from a corner when unmarked and then failing to hit the target with his left and right foot.

West Ham were equally as impressive in defence as going forward against Newcastle and a lot of credit has to go down to the rock solid Diop in the heart of defence. On Saturday, the Magpies welcome West Ham to St. James' Park, with one team looking to move ahead of the other in the table.

After a poor start to the season, which saw West Ham lose their first four games, the Hammers are improving nicely under new manager, Manuel Pellegrini, and they've lost just one of their last five (4-0 at home to Manchester City) but that result wasn't as bad as it looks on paper.

West Ham's Javier Hernandez has scored 48 Premier League goals with all of those strikes coming from inside of the box - only Tim Cahill (56) has scored more goals in the competition with 100% of them coming from inside of the box.

Dear hoped to see a tougher attitude and display from the Hammers when they travel to rejuvenated Newcastle United this weekend: "They have turned it around over the past few weeks - this is going to be a hard game".
