LONDON -- Newcastle ended a three-match losing streak in the Premier League with a 3-1 away win over West Ham on Saturday.
The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area.
The Geordies doubled their advantage courtesy of Loic Remy shortly after the half-hour mark. The striker chested down Moussa Sissoko's cross before converting for his 11th league goal of the season.
West Ham were given a lifeline in the dying stages of the first half when Carlton Cole's parried strike deflected off defender Mike Williamson into an unguarded net.
Cabaye added a third, curling in a free kick in second-half stoppage time for a result that sees the Hammers slip into the relegation zone.
