Tip Newcastle - Wolves
Newcastle United’s campaign took another big hit in the loss to Manchester United and they will be hoping for better times when they host a resurgent Wolverhampton Wanderers. The 3-1 loss to United left Newcastle just three points above the relegation region, in 17th place with 25 points, while Wolves are 12th with 33 points. Newcastle are now on two straight losses, and three in their last four matches. They’ve conceded two or more goals in the last four matches, while their attack hasn’t responded in kind. The Magpies have scored two or more in just two of their last 15 matches. At home, they have one win, three losses, and just a clean sheet in the last six. Meanwhile, all their last four matches at home have produced over 2.5 goals. In their last 14 league matches, the Magpies have managed just two wins, and eight of the last 10 have ended in losses. Lead scorer Callum Wilson is still out injured and will miss this game.
Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers registered a second straight win in their last game, beating Leeds United 1-0. In that win, Wolves once again benefitted from a key controversial VAR decision, just like it was the case in earlier games but they wouldn’t mind. The team has now gone on a four-match undefeated run in the league and can only aim higher. With 26 goals, Wolves have scored the least among teams in the top 14. Of the four wins in they’ve garnered in the last 15 matches, three have come in the last four matches. Away from home, Wolves have won just once in the last seven league games, and that came in their last away match in the league, against Southampton. Heading to this game, Wolves have four straight draws in their last four league meetings with Newcastle United (all 1-1). The two sides have met 78 times and each has won 28, with 19 ending in draws.
