Newcastle United pair Kieran Trippier and Allan Saint-Maximin have taken to social media on Saturday, to provide their respective reactions to the club’s stalemate with West Ham.
Eddie Howe of course guided his troops back into action earlier this afternoon.
Amid a much-improved stretch of form which had seen them rattle off a trio of successive Premier League wins, the Magpies made the trip to London Stadium, eyeing a 4th-straight success in a meeting with David Moyes’ high-flying Irons.
And though, when all was said and done, Newcastle did not quite manage a victory, the visitors did emerge from the English capital with a credible share of the spoils.
After Craig Dawson put West Ham in front just beyond the half-hour mark, Joe Willock struck a decisive equalizer on the stroke of the interval, giving rise to a 1-1 final scoreline.

And now, as alluded to above, two of the key members of Eddie Howe’s squad to have missed out on the action at the London Stadium on Saturday have provided their respective reactions to the club’s latest showing.
Taking to their respective social media platforms, both Allan Saint-Maximin and Kieran Trippier lauded their teammates for a ‘hard fought point’:
Well done 👏 🤍 https://t.co/nvUfqV0hP7

Bees up next
Turning attentions towards the Premier League table, another positive result leaves Newcastle sitting four points clear of the relegation zone at present.
Surprise victories on the part of both Watford and Burnley on Saturday, though, provide the Magpies with a stark reminder that their haul of ten points from twelve over recent weeks remains only a step towards survival.
Next up for Eddie Howe and co. comes a trip to stuttering Brentford, whom Newcastle will actually climb clear of in the English top-flight table, if they ultimately emerge with all three points.
