Back in Tyne: Five wonderful wins at West Ham

Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with West Ham United on Saturday evening (kick-off 8pm BST), we take a look at some of the Magpies' most memorable matches against the Hammers...

Elliot the hero in five-goal thriller (2017/18)

Newcastle United were involved in a enthralling encounter three seasons ago as the Magpies came out on top in a 3-2 victory at the London Stadium.

West Ham opened the scoring inside six minutes through Marko Arnautovic, who seized upon Henri Saivet's loose pass before slotting past Rob Elliot, before the Senegalese midfielder made up for his error by netting a long range free-kick.

United led through Mohamed Diamé's second half strike against his former club before Elliot maintained the Magpies' advantage by brilliantly saving Andre Ayew's penalty.

Shortly after the goalkeeper's heroics, Christian Atsu grabbed United's third with a clinical finish and the Magpies managed to hold on for a crucial three points, despite Ayew halving the deficit towards the latter stages.

Owen's perfect hat-trick (2005/06)

Newcastle claimed a 4-2 victory over West Ham as Michael Owen netted a hat-trick for the Magpies along with a strike from Alan Shearer, which moved the club legend to within one goal of Jackie Milburn's goalscoring record.

After Nolberto Solano's own goal cancelled out Owen's early opener, the England international burst West Ham's bubble by heading home before half-time to restore the visitor's lead.

Shearer extended Newcastle's advantage in the second half and despite future Newcastle striker Marlon Harewood finding the target, Owen made sure of the win with a simple tap-in to complete his one and only hat-trick in Newcastle colours.

Shelvey's stunner and Fede's first goal (2019/20)

Newcastle recorded another 3-2 victory in East London last term after a terrific first-half display sent the Magpies on their way to a crucial victory over Manuel Pellegrini's side.

Ciaran Clark broke the deadlock with a firm header in front of the travelling away supporters before Federico Fernández netted his first goal for the club, beating Hammers goalkeeper Roberto to the ball to also head home. 

Newcastle had plenty of opportunities to extend their advantage and finally grabbed a third as Jonjo Shelvey, who played in the Hammers' Academy as a teenager, clipped in a precise free-kick shortly after the restart. 

Despite goals from Hammers pair Fabian Balbuena and Robert Snodgrass setting up a nervy finale, Steve Bruce's men held on for an important three points.

Cabaye's delightful double (2013/14)

Yohan Cabaye ended his three-year stint at Newcastle on a high before completing a move to Paris Saint-Germain, with the Frenchman netting twice in a 3-1 win at Upton Park.

The midfielder broke the deadlock with an accurate shot into the right-hand corner before his fellow Frenchman, Loïc Rémy, doubled the away side's lead with his 11th goal of the campaign, brilliantly controlling Moussa Sissoko's cross before poking the ball home.

Carlton Cole set up a tense finish by pulling one back for the Hammers on the stroke of half time but, with what would be his final touch for the club, Cabaye whipped a stunning free-kick over the wall and past Adrian to seal the victory.

A bril-Lee-ant victory for Premier League debutants (1993/94)

Competing in the Premier League for the first time, Kevin Keegan's entertaining side claimed an impressive 4-2 victory in the capital, with former United midfielder Rob Lee netting a brace.

Before their clash against the Hammers, Lee and United were in hot goalscoring form, with the midfielder grabbing a brace in a 7-1 drubbing of Swindon Town at St. James' Park.

It was Lee's deflected strike which opened the deadlock at Upton Park before right-back Tim Breacker brought the hosts back on level terms in the second half.

A frantic finish to the top-flight clash saw Andy Cole restored Newcastle's lead before Lee grabbed his second of the afternoon three minutes later.

Alvin Martin reduced the deficit for the Hammers late on before substitute Alex Mathie slotted home Newcastle's fourth, following impressive work from Peter Beardsley and Cole, to secure the Magpies' fourth consecutive league win.
