Last week Kevin Nolan said West Ham face eight cup finals to qualify for the Champions League this season.
We have won the first cup final against Leicester City at the London Stadium last weekend and now we face our second cup final against Newcastle at St James Park this weekend with six more to play after that.
Three key players are out with Declan Rice, Michail Antonio and now Aaron Cresswell unavailable to play through injuries.
However, three other key players are due to be declared match fit for Saturday’s encounter against the Magpies.
Angelo Ogbonna is tipped for his return this Saturday after his layoff since February having trained all week.
Mark Noble who took a knock to his elbow and Arthur Masuauku who was holding his hamstring at the end of last Sunday’s game appear to have recovered and have trained all week and should be available for selection.
