West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic to hip-ing to start against Newcastle

The Mexico worldwide struck either side of half-time with Felipe Anderson adding a third at the death to end the Magpies' three-game winning streak in comprehensive fashion on an afternoon when the Hammers might have won even more handsomely if they had been more composed in front of goal.

After the game, Benitez acknowledged the threat that Hernandez, Anderson, Marko Arnautovic and Robert Snodgrass posed on the break.

West Ham's form has been quite the opposite to their North-East opposition, having won just once since the start of October.

Snodgrass curled in a fine cross from the right and Hernandez ran behind a static defence to finish from close range.

Arnautovic superbly headed down a lofted West Ham clearance into Hernandez's stride and the 30-year old made no mistake as he drove the ball past Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka inside the near post.

Rondon also headed over from a corner in the 53rd minute, but it was downhill for Newcastle from there.

Dubravka, however, felt there were some "good things" to take from the game.

The task for West Ham the defender feels will be to play with full concentration for the full 90 minutes and not drop important points that they have been dropping this season. Former Newcastle striker Carroll started on the bench along with Wilshere. "We were losing 3-0 then so it wasn't that important". "He is more used to the Premier League now and I agree that he is improving a little more in every game".

Through the first 13 games of the Premier League season, Newcastle and West Ham are level on points with 12.

The first major concern for West Ham will be the injury status of their forward Marko Arnautovic.

"He's just kept coming back for more".

Hernandez might have outscored Anderson, but the Brazilian produced an excellent all-around display.

"Yes, yes. I am very, very pleased because we played a complete game", the Chilean enthused. The lack of offense would be more concerning for Newcastle if the club was not so good defensively. "And then it was all killed off in the final few minutes".
