St James Park

Newcastle United will take on West Ham United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Newcastle United players have been training today ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against West Ham United at home.

The Magpies will head into the encounter at St. James’ Park placed 17th in the league table with 36 points from 37 matches, just two points above the relegation zone.

Newcastle will guarantee their survival in the Premier League with a win against the Hammers, but for a team who have lost nine of their last 10 matches it will not be easy.

However, it seems that the players are ready for the fight, as they looked determined and focused in training today (see pictures below).

If John Carver’s side lose on Sunday, then they will get relegated to the Championship if Hull City defeat Manchester United at the KC Stadium.

The Tigers are currently third from bottom in the league standings, with Burnley and Queens Park Rangers below them (they have also been relegated).
