Newcastle vs. Wolves: Magpies to climb out of relegation zone with rare victory?

Published

on

Two sides in the bottom half of the Premier League come face to face on Sunday afternoon as Steve Bruce’s Newcastle host Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves.

The home side head into the game on the back of a narrow 1-0 defeat to Chelsea, with Wolves perhaps disappointed to have been held to a 1-1 draw with Southampton at Molineux last weekend.

The hard-earned draw for the Saints will, however, give Newcastle a much-needed confidence boost ahead of the Wolves meeting on Sunday.

The hosts are currently 2/1 to win the game, with the visitors priced at 6/4.

Both sides have just two wins from nine league games, but Newcastle find themselves in the relegation zone after failing to hold out for a draw in certain encounters, something the away side have managed to do.

Wolves have improved their displays enough to keep them three points ahead of Bruce’s side going into the game.

Newcastle have the joint-lowest total of just five league goals this season, level with bottom of the table Watford in that category.

They are priced at 13/8 to fire another blank in front of goal, much like last their last league game at Stamford Bridge.

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has picked up from where he left off last season. He’s got three goals in the current Premier League campaign, and is currently 15/8 to grab a fourth.

Five different players have scored Newcastle’s five league goals, a statistic that will hugely frustrate manager Bruce.

He will be counting on summer signing Joelinton to double his tally for the club on Sunday. The Brazilian is 11/2 to score the game’s opening goal, and 21/10 to score anytime.

The Magpies will also look to threaten from set pieces, with centre backs Jamaal Lascelles and Fabian Schar keen to push the club out of the relegation zone with a match-winner.

The captain is 18/1 to score anytime, with his defensive partner currently priced at 17/2.

The home side have largely held their own in most games this season, but their failure to find the back of the net has come back to haunt them.

They did, however, win their last game in front of their loyal supporters at St James’ Park. They beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United 1-0, and are priced at 7/1 to do the same against Wolves.

But Wolves were equally impressive on their last outing on the road, beating the blue half of Manchester 2-0 at the Etihad.

It looks set to be an intriguing, competitive encounter, and one which both teams will want to win in order to truly distance themselves from any real relegation danger as the season progresses.
