Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Newcastle United could line up against West Ham United on Saturday.

Newcastle United will be looking to move further clear of the Premier League relegation zone when they continue their 2020-21 campaign at home to West Ham United on Saturday.

The Magpies, who are currently 17th in the table, six points clear of the relegation zone, will again be without the services of four first-team players this weekend through injury.

Ryan Fraser is still battling a groin problem, while Jamaal Lascelles is struggling with a foot issue.

Fabian Schar could return before the end of the campaign, but Isaac Hayden will not be available until next season due to a significant knee injury.

Head coach Steve Bruce is expected to keep faith with the majority of the side that started last weekend's 2-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin both appeared off the bench against Sean Dyche's side, and it would not be a surprise to see the pair feature in the starting XI against the Hammers.

Wilson and Saint-Maximin could come in for Dwight Gayle and Joelinton, with Miguel Almiron providing attacking support from a deeper position.

Sean Longstaff and Jonjo Shelvey should continue in the middle of the park, while Jacob Murphy and Matt Ritchie are likely to retain their spots in the wing-back positions.

Newcastle possible starting lineup: Dubravka; Fernandez, Clark, Dummett; Murphy, Almiron, Shelvey, Longstaff, Ritchie; Saint-Maximin, Wilson
