West Ham braked, Newcastle snatches a draw
In great form since the start of the season, West Ham suffered a stoppage this Saturday afternoon against Wolverhampton. Without Angelo Ogbonna, the boss in central defense, David Moyes’ men bowed (1-0). It was the Mexican striker Raul Jimenez (58th) who scored the only goal of the match. In the standings, the Hammers miss the opportunity to take second place while waiting for the matches of Manchester City, Sunday, and Liverpool (against Arsenal at 6.30 p.m.).
For the premiere of the Newcastle version Eddie Howe (the English coach was not on the bench after being positive for Covid), there was a spectacle. The Magpies, long led, snatched the draw (3-3). It is the French Allan Saint-Maximin who scored the goal of the equalizer (75th) and who saves the furniture. But Newcastle remain last in the Premier League.

Finally, the meeting between Crystal Palace and Burnley ended in a 3-3. Former Lyonnais Maxwel Cornet scored a sublime volley to offer the point of the draw. He has now scored 5 goals in his last 6 matches. Note that the Belgian Christian Benteke scored a double.
