West Ham and Newcastle may struggle for Christmas cheer
Kick-off 3pm Saturday
The Irons had not scored more than two goals in any of their previous 17 league games this season and they are without suspended Manuel Lanzini, who is by far their most creative player.
Newcastle arrive in London low on confidence and need a positive result to stop the rot. The Magpies are likely to be cautious and West Ham may struggle to break them down.
Under 2.5 goals

Michail Antonio (calf) is a doubt, Mark Noble (hamstring) is out and Manuel Lanzini completes a two-game ban but Cheikhou Kouyate is back in training and should return.
Aleksandar Mitrovic (back) and Jesus Gamez (ankle) are injured and Jonjo Shelvey completes a two-game ban.
West Ham have scored fewer than two goals in eight of their last nine matches.
