    Newcastle 3-0 West Ham

    It's all over. The home fans sing Rafa Benitez's name.

    You don't want to know what the visiting fans are cheering.

  2. GOAL - Newcastle 3-0 West Ham

    Aleksandar Mitrovic

    This time the Serb does score!

    More pressure from the buzzing Newcastle midfield eventually sees the ball played into the feet of Aleksandar Mitrovic who anticipates well.

    The sub keeps his cool, rounds Joe Hart before slotting in.

    Two losses in the first two games - now an emphatic win!

    Poor West Ham.

    Newcastle 2-0 West Ham

    Joe Hart comes to West Ham's rescue again as he makes a point-blank save from Aleksandar Mitrovic.

  4. Post update

    Newcastle 2-0 West Ham

    Manuel Lanzini appears to be holding the back of his head.

    The replays shows that Aleksandar Mitrovic's arm connected with his head.

    Kevin Kilbane

    Former Huddersfield winger

    Newcastle supporters can be proud of the way they have played today.

    It's a nice header.


    Newcastle 2-0 West Ham

    Newcastle are looking for the third.

    Matt Ritchie's goalbound shot comes off the boot of Aaron Cresswell.

    He deserves a goal.

  7. GOAL - Newcastle 2-0 West Ham

    Ciaran Clark

    It's that man Matt Ritchie again.

    The Scot - yes, Gordon Strachan he can play for your side - skins Manuel Lanzini on the right before delivering a cross on to the head of Ciaran Clark, who nods in.

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Joselu, who has worked his legs off, is replaced by Aleksandar Mitrovic.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    It's a double substitution for the Hammers.

    Andre Ayew is off and Diafro Sakho comes on.

    And Cheikhou Kouyate comes on for Mark Noble.

    West Ham have no more options.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    So unlucky Matt Ritchie!

    The man-of-the-match so far cruises forward and fires a low shot which Joe Hart parries.

    The ball almost lands at the feet of Joselu, but the Spaniard is denied a second goal as Pablo Zabaleta clears.

  11. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Hayden is OK.

    There is now a period of messy head tennis in St James'.

    A great advert for the Premier League.

  12. Man down - again

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Issac Hayden is receiving treatment for a leg problem. Not sure how he acquired that.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Imagine if Hernandez had scored then?

    Rob Elliot makes a great save to keep out Aaron Cresswell's drive.

    Elliot takes the sting out of Javier Hernandez's follow up which is cleared pretty much off the line by Ciaran Clark.

    The game has livened up and West Ham have woken up much to the relief of their fans.

  14. Hernandez avoids red card

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    A talking to.

  15. Hello?

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Javier Hernandez who has a yellow brings down Javier Manquillo.

    Neil Swarbrick's decision is...


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Joe Hart gets a fingertip to push Ayoze Perez low shot away from goal.

    The Magpies - tails up.

  17. KICK-OFF

    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Back under way. Other matches have finished.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Manuel Lanzini is on for Declan Rice. The 18-year-old, whose mistake led to the Magpies goal.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    Finally. Neil Swarbrick blows.

    Newcastle fans applaud. Dare I say it, they've looked decent.

    West Ham look disjointed.


    Newcastle 1-0 West Ham

    The fifth minute!

    There have been a lot of injuries to be fair.

    Christian Atsu springs forward and drives a low shot that is easily collected by Joe Hart.
