Newcastle United vs West Ham United Premier League injury news with 7 out and 5 doubts

Newcastle United and West Ham are nursing setbacks ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash - here is the list for both teams in full

Newcastle United supporters could be forgiven for switching off whenever the dreaded "injuries" word is mentioned. Setback after setback has decimated the Magpies' season, with questions being asked about whether the recruitment was on point last summer.

More injury woes during the international break has done little to stem the tide of negativity around the St James' Park treatment table. However, Eddie Howe could reveal up positive news at his pre-match press conference later this week.

Several Toon stars who were ruled out against Manchester City almost a fortnight ago were nursing knocks and may feature on Saturday. Returning players - and further absentees - pose several selection dilemmas for Howe to contend with.

They are facing a solid West Ham United outfit aiming to qualify for Europe for the fourth consecutive campaign. The Hammers, with a win against Newcastle, would also stand an outside chance of making the Champions League for the first time in their history.

David Moyes also has an injury list to consider - although nowhere near as severe as Newcastle's. NewcastleWorld has profiled both club's absentee lists ahead of a Premier League six-pointer this weekend.
