Newcastle v West Ham Odds: Back Kevin Nolan to score against his old club

Kevin NolanWest Ham's Sam Allardyce, Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan will be looking to get one over on their old club Newcastle when they travel to St James' Park on Sunday afternoon. The trio left in varying circumstances and Allardyce in particular will be looking to take three points off the side who sacked him in such acrimonious circumstances two years ago.

Newcastle haven't looked back since parting company with Allardyce as Alan Pardew has worked wonders in the North East and it's Newcastle who start 10/11 favourites in the match odds with Ladbrokes. West Ham cannot be ruled out though and they are a best price 3/1 to win and a tempting 12/5 to draw as Allardyce looks to extend his own four-match winning run as a manager in fixtures against Newcastle.

Allardyce has moved on from Newcastle as he helped guide the Hammers back into the top-flight and he is set to unleash Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan on their former club. Carroll is yet to get off the mark this season but he is 7/1 to score first and 11/5 to score anytime at St James', while Nolan, who has scored four in the Premier League this term, is 9/1 and 3/1 in the same respective markets.

They could be worth a look to get on the scoresheet as they have both scored in their two previous appearances in this fixture, albeit for Newcastle. The Hammers look capable of getting on the scoresheet and over 2.5 goals looks a decent punt at 5/6 this weekend, particularly as West Ham's last four away games have gone that way.

Newcastle have kept just one clean sheet in the league this season as they struggled to hit the heights they reached last year. There is some suggestion of 'second season syndrome' as they find themselves alongside West Ham in a mid-table position currently, although Demba Ba has continued to impress.

Ba, the 4/1 favourite to score first in the betting with Ladbrokes, has seven league goals to his name this season and he is expected to be fit for Sunday's match, as is Yohan Cabaye. However, Newcastle's defence is significantly weakened by the loss of the suspended Fabricio Coloccini, who was unnecessarily sent off in the 1-1 draw at Liverpool last weekend.

Carroll and co. will look to take advantage of Coloccini's absence but the fact West Ham have won just three of their last 41 Premier League away games doesn't inspire confidence. Newcastle have been formidable at home, winning 11 and losing only two (to Manchester United and Manchester City) of their last 15 at St James', but we fancy they might have to settle for a point against a well-organised West Ham, who can ensure the 3/1 for a score draw provides a nice return.
