With home field advantage, West Ham did not hesitate to launch a preemptive strike. In the 8th minute, the home team at London Stadium took the lead. Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope entered and exited inappropriately, creating conditions for Soucek to easily tap the ball into the goal to open the score.
Some time later, Newcastle tried to push the team higher, looking for an equalizer. In the 29th and 32nd minutes, Almiron and Dan Burn took turns finishing dangerously, but the goal still did not come to “Chich Choe”. Therefore, the away team accepted being behind after the first half.

This striker easily beat goalkeeper Areola to equalize for Newcastle.
Just 5 minutes later, Isak quickly scored twice, helping Newcastle advance. Trippier assisted with a sensational one-touch pass, after receiving the ball from Bruno Guimaraes.
