West Ham 1-3 Newcastle: Newcastle snap losing streak, cause more pain for Irons (video)

Jan 18, 2014, 11:59 AM EDT

West Ham’s pain is increasing and Sam Allardyce may very well be in trouble. The loss to Newcastle, combined with Sunderland’s point at Southampton and Crystal Palace’s victory over Stoke, puts the Irons down into the relegation zone once more. Could changes be afoot in East London?

Newcastle hadn’t scored in their last three Premier League matches, but they managed to turn that around in the first half against West Ham. Yohan Cabaye got things started with a goal in the 16th minute, picking up a ball from Yoan Gouffran on the edge of the area. Cabaye’s first touch put him out of reach of Răzvan Raț, and his second, a sidefooted shot, knocked the ball past Irons keeper Adrián.

West Ham helped Newcastle double their lead in the 33rd minute, with Matt Taylor misreading a cross from Moussa Sissoko. Loïc Rémy was free to chest down the ball, slotting his shot into the bottom left corner from close range.

Then the visitors were kind enough to gift one to West Ham, with Mike Williamson scoring an own goal to finish off the first half. Does that count for Newcastle’s scoring tally? In any event, it sure gave the Irons hope going into the break. Tim Krul did well to deny a shot from Carlton Cole, but the ball bounced back into the area, pinging around assorted legs before bouncing off the Newcastle defender and into the back of the net.

Sam Allardyce sensed that his side might be up for coming back to grab at least a point, and elected to put on Ravel Morrison for Jack Collison to start the second half. Shortly thereafter, West Ham had a couple of chances in quick succession. James Collins could have grabbed the equalizer, but his header went just wide. Two minutes later, in the 56th, Carlton Cole wasted a fantastic opportunity to get the Irons’ second, getting on the end of a shot from Taylor but putting it wide of goal.

After that, West Ham seemed resigned to their loss, with the only real effort coming from Andy Carroll. The former Newcastle man, on for Mohamed Diamé, had a great opportunity to get his side level, but put the ball well high. The shot sparked the hosts to life once more, but their last minute attempts ultimately proved fruitless.

Instead it was Newcastle that had the final word. A free kick in injury time gave the visitors their third, with Cabaye’s fantastic strike curling toward goal. Adrián got a hand to it but could do no more than push the ball into the post.
