West Ham will begin the 2021/22 Premier League campaign with a trip to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United.

After Irons’ boss David Moyes admitted the club would be keen to land the 28-year-old on a permanent basis, the star could be set for a summer of speculation. Ex-Hammers centre-back Upson has pleaded with the club to pull out all the stops in order to land the 28-cap England man in an interview with LiveScore.

Unsurprisingly the fixtures come with a major caveat towards alterations due to Europa League participation – with a large chunk of matches likely to be moved to Sunday kick-offs.

Moyes will be relatively pleased with the opening matches, confident of getting off to another positive start.

The opening day clash also provides the Hammers with an opportunity to seek revenge on Steve Bruce’s Newcastle side, having suffered a double defeat to the Geordies last term.
