London’s West Ham lost in the 32nd round of the Premier League on the pitch with the descent of endangered Newcastle 2: 3 and remained in fourth place in the table. Hammers were hit by large individual mistakes.
Although the “Hammers” played from the 36th minute without the disqualified Craig Dawson and lost by two goals after the first half, they evened after the change of sides. Soon after, however, Joseph Willock arranged a home win.
The Czech national team Vladimír Coufal and Tomáš Souček played the whole match in the jersey of the defeated team.
West Ham received a double shot in the 36th minute. After Dawson’s foul, the referee left Newcastle an advantage and the returning defender Diop scored his own goal after a misunderstanding with goalkeeper Fabiaňský. In addition, Dawson saw his second yellow card.
Five minutes later, the “Magpies” increased. Fabiaňský fell the ball out of hand after a corner kick and the quick Joelinton was not wrong in the immediate vicinity.
In the 73rd minute, Diop lowered his head and seven minutes later equalized from the penalty Lingard. The English national team member, who is a guest from Manchester United in West Ham, called with the ninth goal of the league season at the top of the top scorers of the Součka team. But in two minutes, Willock returned the home leadership.
The London team lost after three rounds, but still holds the last place ensuring the start in the Champions League. He is one point ahead of the fifth Chelsea and two more ahead of the sixth Liverpool, but both opponents played a duel less. On the other hand, Newcastle did not lose in the league for the third time in a row and by moving to 15th place it came significantly closer to rescue.
Sheffield United is the first relegator from the Premier League. It was definitely decided by a 0: 1 loss in Wolverhampton. Sheffield returned to the top competition after 12 years last season and surprisingly finished ninth. In the current year, however, he won only four of the 32 matches and lost 26 of them.
