Newcastle vs Wolverhampton Predictions

  • Wolves have won eight of their 15 away games in the Premier League.
  • Wolves have won three of their last four games.
  • Newcastle have lost each of their last three, scoring just one goal during that run.
  • Six of Wolves’ away wins have been accompanied by clean sheets.

Resurgent Wolves head to slumping Newcastle

Wolves have reignited their European push after a run of three wins in their last four games and they will be looking to continue their fine form at a Newcastle side who have hit a rough patch on Friday.

The Magpies enjoyed an eight-game unbeaten run to move clear of the relegation places but have lost their last three, conceding seven goals and scoring just once in the process.

The hosts remain without long-term injury victims Isaac Hayden, Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier, while Joe Willock is rated as a doubt with a knee problem. Wolves are without midfielder Ruben Neves due to a knee injury.

In-form visitors look good value

Newcastle’s losing run started with a 1-0 loss at Chelsea and there is no disgrace in that, but performances since have been less encouraging. Eddie Howe’s men went on to lose 1-0 at a struggling Everton side, despite dominating for large periods, and were then thrashed 5-1 by Spurs.

Wolves claimed a 2-1 win over Aston Villa to record a third win in their last four games and they probably would have won all four of those had Raul Jimenez not been sent off in their home defeat to Leeds. The Molineux club were 2-0 up and cruising until the Mexican’s dismissal but Leeds made the most of their numerical advantage and completed a comeback. The fact Bruno Lage’s men responded to that setback with a win over Villa is encouraging though, and with the European spots still in sight they should be fired up for this trip to the north east.

Wolves, who won the reverse fixture 2-1. have the fourth best away record in the league with eight wins in 15 games and at a big price a victory for the visitors appeals here. Newcastle have won their last three at St James’ Park but all of those wins came against teams in the bottom half and they haven’t managed a home win over a team currently ranked higher than 13th all season.

Goals could be in short supply

Wolves may have managed 26 points from 15 away games, but they average just 1.0 goals-per-game on their travels and six of their eight away victories have been accompanied by clean sheets.

Newcastle have lost four of their home games and have failed to score in their last two home losses so if Wolves do come away with all three points they may also keep their opponents at bay and a 1-0 win for the visitors appeals in the correct score market.

Newcastle predicted lineup: Dubravka, Targett, Burn, Schar, Manquillo, Joelinton, Shelvey, S Longstaff, Saint-Maximin, Wood, Fraser

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa, Boly, Coady, Kilman, Jonny, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Marcal, Trincao, Hawng, Jimenez
