West Ham extended their unbeaten run at home to six games in all competitions with a comfortable 2-0 win against Newcastle.

Declan Rice put the Hammers ahead with just seven minutes gone, nodding in after losing his marker from Robert Snodgrass’ corner.

Captain Mark Noble doubled the home side’s lead from the penalty spot just before half time, after Javier Hernandez was fouled in the box.

Chances were few and far between in a relatively uneventful second half, with Newcastle failing to create anything to trouble West Ham.

Ayoze Perez wasted a good chance for the visitors, dragging his shot wide early in the second half, and Salomon Rondon hit the post from a free kick in the final few minutes, but Rafael Benitez’s side ultimately didn’t do enough to threaten the Hammers’ lead.

Victory moves Manuel Pellegrini’s side up to ninth in the league, while Newcastle remain in 14th, six points clear of the relegation zone.

Here’s how we rated West Ham’s performance on Saturday evening.
