90+5 mins: Yarmolenko almost gets a consolation goal for Wet Ham. He brings the ball in from the left and hits one at goal. Darlow does enough to stop the shot and Haller almost taps the follow up in but it bounces out of his reach.
The final whistle goes and Newcastle take a well deserved three points back to the North East with them. It’s Newcastle first win on the opening day for eight years. West Ham have lost on the opening day for the fourth year in a row without scoring.

90 mins: Game over. It’s not be overly exciting but it’s been effective from Steve Bruce’s men, especially his newcomers. Newcastle look like a steady, organised unit. West Ham have not been good. They’ve put very little pressure on the ball or Newcastle’s back line. It good be a long season for them.
Five added minutes to play.
