West Ham United on 4th line with a defeat at Newcastle

West Ham United have suffered a costly defeat to Newcastle United in the fight for qualification for the Champions League. The London club went down 3-2 with ten men.

West Ham is still fourth after the defeat, which results in a ticket for the Champions League at the end of the season. The ‘Hammers’ have never played in the ball of millions. Chelsea (Tuesday at home against Brighton) and Liverpool (away against Leeds on Sunday) can take over fourth place this round.

Due to an own goal by Issa Diop and a goal by Joelinton, Newcastle already led 2-0 at half time. In between, West Ham defender Craig Dawson was sent off with two yellow cards.
