It's been a decent game of football at St James' Park in the evenong Kick off. West ham have looked lively and but for a dreadful defensive lapse in the opening minutes could and should be ahead.
Lucas Paqueta scored his first goal from play for the Hammers, seizing on the broken ball after a delicious Declan Rice corner.
The celebration that followed was spectacular with a somersault followed by joyous blessings!
In reality, Paqueta has been the best player on the pitch and looks to be finally finding his feet in the Premiership.
Newcastle have looked a bit cocky and conceded a lot of space to West ham who really should have another goal. Eddie Howe will surely want to change it around for what is set up to be a cracking second half!
So, it's 1-1 at the break.
