Reason For Wolverhampton vs Newcastle Predictions

  • Wolves lost just five of their last 29 Premier League home matches.
  • Wolves won each of their last two league games 1-0.
  • Wanderers kept clean sheets in seven of their last nine home fixtures.
  • Newcastle scored one or fewer goals in seven of their last nine Premier League away matches.

Wanderers build momentum

Wolves rebounded from successive defeats to Man City and West Ham with back-to-back wins of their own against Fulham and Leeds in their most recent Premier League tests either side of the international break, and Wanderers will be keen to complete their hattrick on Sunday in a winnable looking game at home to Newcastle.

Wanderers conceded seven times in their worryingly heavy losses to Man City (1-3) and West Ham (0-4), though clean sheets against the Cottagers and newly promoted Leeds suggested that Wolves’ have worked to tighten things up at the back.

Nuno Espirito Santo will hope to lean on his team’s rediscovered robustness to wrangle another three points out of their meeting with the Magpies on Sunday, and Wolves look favourites to topple a Newcastle team that just had their confidence rocked.

Newcastle’s United setback

Newcastle were thumped 4-1 at home last weekend by Manchester United, having failed to build on the early lead they established in fortuitous circumstances through Luke Shaw’s own goal.

The Magpies were thoroughly outplayed at St. James’ Park by a United team in crisis, and Newcastle allowed their visitors to rack up an enormous 28 attempts overall – the highest number of shots hit by any side in a single Premier League fixture this season.

The manner of the defeat is certain to have taken the wind out of Newcastle’s sails ahead of their trip to Molineux, and though the Magpies avoided defeat on each of their last two visits to that venue, we expect them to struggle this time around.

Wolves worth backing

With successive victories behind them, Wolves are starting to build some momentum, and we think Wanderers are worth backing to harness home advantage against Newcastle on Sunday.

Having lost just five of their last 29 Premier League games at Molineux, Wolves have long established themselves as one of the division’s toughest teams to beat on their own patch, while a Magpies outfit with just five victories in 19 top-flight attempts on the road often have their wings clipped on their travels.

Newcastle’s self-belief was given a real wobble in their mauling at the hands of Man Utd last weekend, and Wolves look primed to take advantage following two wins to nil on the spin.

With the factors aligned, the odds available for a home win are too good to pass on this weekend, while our correct score backs Wolves to record their third 1-0 victory on the trot.

Wanderers scored exactly one goal in each of their Premier League tussles with Newcastle last term, and having kept clean sheets in seven of their last nine top-flight assignments on home soil, a single effort again should be enough to see off Steve Bruce’s low-scoring side.

Wolves injuries and team news

Jonny is the only current Wanderers player in the treatment room, leaving Nuno Espirito Santo with plenty of options to choose from ahead of Sunday’s game.

Adama Traore could be restored to the starting XI after his impactful introduction from the bench against Leeds last week.

Newcastle injuries and team news

Martin Dubravka, Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie remain sidelined for Newcastle, though Steve Bruce will hope to have in-form stopper Kal Darlow between the sticks.

Isaac Hayden’s hamstring issues mean that versatile Swiss international Favian Schar could find a slot in midfield.
