West Ham 3-1 Newcastle Highlights
Gianfranco Zola’s reign as West Ham manager got off to a good start thanks to two goals from David di Michele.
His first was deflected off Steven Taylor and the second was a follow-up after Shay Given blocked his shot.
West Ham eased off after di Michele set up a third for Matthew Etherington and they were soon made to pay for it.
Robert Green was beaten by Michael Owen and then had to make two point-blank saves as Newcastle rallied but West Ham held on to keep their 100% home record.
