West Ham Upton Park

Aaron Cresswell's second half goal handed West Ham a 1-0 over Newcastle United.

West Ham United bounced back from three games without a win to see off a resurgent Newcastle United at Upton Park in a 1-0 victory.

The Hammers had previously drawn two and lost one of their three games in November, whilst the Magpies had won their last six games in all competitions.

The game saw both managers going up against their former clubs, with ex-Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce in the West Ham dugout, whilst former Hammers boss Alan Pardew was in the other technical area.

Yet it was Allardyce who would have the last laugh over Newcastle today, as his side claimed their first win of November with a 1-0 triumph.

Left back Aaron Cresswell snatched the only goal of the game, latching onto a through ball and sneaking the ball past Magpies goalkeeper Rob Elliot in the 56th minute.

Newcastle's day went from bad to worse as French international midfielder Moussa Sissoko received his marching orders for two bookings in the 75th minute.

That left Newcastle to play out the final 15 minutes with ten men, but it made no difference to scoreline as West Ham moved back up to fifth place with their win, whilst Newcastle slipped to eighth.
