Highlights: Newcastle United 1-0 West Ham United

 

West Ham United’s week-long trip to China ended in disappointment as the Hammers were defeated 1-0 by Newcastle United in the Premier League Asia Cup third/fourth-place play-off.

Japan international Yoshinori Muto was the Magpies’ match-winner, expertly diverting wing-back Jamie Sterry’s cross into the bottom left-hand corner of Lukasz Fabianski’s net eleven minutes before half-time.

The east Londoners dominated possession for long periods at the Hongkou Football Stadium in Shanghai, particularly in the second half, but were unable to seriously trouble Newcastle’s Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Indeed, the Hammers’ best opportunities came mainly from headers, with Felipe Anderson going the closest when his effort from Robert Snodgrass’s 63rd-minute corner clipped the top of the crossbar.
