Callum Wilson to score first
Newcastle United face West Ham United in their opening Premier League fixture for a second successive season, only this time they will be cheered on by a packed home crowd.
The Toon fielded three debutants that day with two of them, Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick, scoring as the Magpies eased to a 2-0 victory at the London Stadium.
It was an impressive performance, made even more so by the season West Ham went on to have, flirting with Champions League qualification before eventually finishing a very commendable sixth.
With Joe Willock arriving on Friday for £25m from Arsenal, Newcastle’s attacking talent has been boosted – especially after his fantastic loan spell at the end of last season.
Meanwhile, striker Wilson loves playing against the Hammers, having scored eight goals in 10 games against them and that is why he is the 9/2 favourite to open the scoring on Sunday.
