England Premier League
Saturday 11th January 2020
Kick off at 3pm GMT
Venue: Molineux Stadium
Wolves are in 7th place with 30 points and at times this season their hard work just like last season has paid off. They drew 0-0 in the FA Cup at home to Manchester United and will face off in a replay, but in the league they have stumbled a bit with their last two games ending in defeats.
Their first was a narrow loss 1-0 away to Liverpool, that could be seen as acceptable but their next was a defeat at Watford. Though Watford have improved immensely over the last few weeks this was still seen as a set back for Wolves.
They can put those results aside though because they are still in the mix to make a splash into the top four. They are 6 points behind Chelsea and a win here could see the club move into 5th place. At home they have only won 40% of their games, never a good sign but they did infamously win their last home game 3-2 against the champions Manchester City, although with a little help from a red card.
After finding brilliant form Newcastle have nose dived and lost their last 3 consecutive games. The club are in 13th place and a win would take them just 2 points behind Wolves. The Magpies have conceded 10 goals in their last 3 games, losing 3-0 to Leicester in their last Premier League match.
On the road they have lost 70% of games, and are yet to draw. They have scored just 9 goals and are conceding just over 2 goals per game on average. They have lost 3 of their last four away games, so form is not in their favour.
Wolves: Diogo Jota looks like he will miss this match after a knock, he remains at 50/50, he is the only doubt for the club ahead of the game.
Newcastle: Miguel Almiron and Andy Carroll should return from minor groin injuries. Javier Manquillo is ruled out with a hamstring injury.
Wolves vs Newcastle Head to Head:
The teams have drawn their last two meetings which ended with the same score line of 1-1.
There is a 60% chance to see under 2.5 goals.
Wolves have failed to win their last 4 home games against Newcastle.
Wolves vs Newcastle Prediction:
Both teams can play nice attractive attacking football and both have little to lose to be a bit more open and that is why we think we could witness a very entertaining and end to end game. We will be backing both teams to score and since these teams are good at drawing games together this will also be our choice, however our main one will be to see both teams scoring. Raul Jimenez remains a threat for Wolves and with the news that Patrick Cutrone is leaving the club that will appease Jimenez for his position and we should see a positive reflection of that.
Wolves vs Newcastle Betting Tips:
Both teams to score at 2.10
Wolves and Newcastle to draw at 4.33
Anytime goalscorer: Raul Jimenez at 2.05
