The Hammers can move into third with a victory over Newcastle today, getting an edge on their top-four rivals who are preoccupied with FA Cup duties.

Another big win last weekend, against fellow top-four hopefuls Leicester City, means West Ham have further tightened their grip on possible Champions League qualification.

With the Foxes, in third, and Chelsea, in fifth, playing at Wembley this weekend, West Ham will move into the top three – their highest position all season – should they leave St James’ Park with all three points.

Newcastle are also looking up, though not much further than the relegation scrap which they hope to rid themselves of.

Still 17th but six points above Fulham in the final relegation spot, following up last week’s win at Burnley with three more points today should do it.

19min: Saint-Maximin with a fierce drive but it’s down Fabianski’s throat.

Should have done better.

17min: First attempt on goal for West Ham as Dawson gets his head on Soucek’s cross, but it’s straight at the keeper.

15min: Quite a slow tempo to the game so far.

West Ham seeing more of the ball but not doing much with it.

West Ham are going to need Bowen to do a lot of running off the ball to move the Newcastle back line about this afternoon.

Antonio is superb at it when he is fit and, unlikely Leicester, Newcastle are going to be far more difficult to hit on the break so often.

11min: Newcastle just about edging these early exchanges and Saint-Maximin, having fully recovered, is at the heart of it and finding plenty of pockets.

8min: Ah, he’s gonna be OK.

7min: Uh oh.

Injury concern for Saint-Maximin after colliding with Coufal.

4min: First sight of goal sees Longstaff have a pop from the edge of the area, but he’s off balance and shot is weak.

Here we go!

A minute’s silence for Prince Philip, then kick-off.
