Newcastle vs Wolverhampton predictions for Saturday’s Premier League contest at St. James’ Park. Wolves can climb into the top half of the table with a victory over Newcastle Read on for all our free predictions and betting tips.

Both teams have scored in each of the last five meetings between Newcastle and Wolves.

Each of the last four encounters between the teams finished 1-1.

Newcastle have won only one of their last six home league assignments.

Wolves have won only one of their last seven away league matches.

Relegation fears heighten for Newcastle

Newcastle’s run of eight defeats in their last ten league assignments is relegation worthy form, and with a flimsy three-point buffer between them and the drop zone, the Magpies need to swing results back in their favour soon.

The addition of Graeme Jones to the club’s backroom staff in January has brought about a change in Newcastle’s style of play, though United’s players are taking time to adapt to the new high-pressing, hard-running philosophy.

Newcastle looked full of running in the first half of their defeat to Man Utd last time out, though the Magpies’ energy reserves looked exhausted in a far meeker showing in the second period.

Wolves finding form

Wolves meanwhile, have taken ten points from the last 12 on offer, and while they have enjoyed the rub of the green in terms of own goals and penalties going their way, Wanderers’ overall performances are improving.

Their recent surge has fired them to within swinging distance of the division’s top half again, and the displays of quicksilver winger Pedro Neto have been a real highlight.

Goals at both ends likely

Both teams to score backers have been rewarded in all five of the Premier League meetings between Newcastle and Wolves since the latter’s promotion in 2018, and it could be worth backing the teams to swap goals again on Saturday.

Newcastle have looked a more threatening force since Graeme Jones brought new ideas to Tyneside in January, and the Magpies have failed to score just once in five attempts.

Their haul of just one clean sheet from the same period suggests that defensive problems remain however, and Wolves, led by the aforementioned Pedro Neto, have enough about them in the final third to bite back.

Alongside our both teams to score forecast, a 1-1 draw looks a correct score prediction worth backing. That was the outcome in each of the teams’ last four Premier League encounters and the sides should prove difficult to separate again on Saturday.

Newcastle injuries and team news

Karl Darlow could be replaced by Martin Dubravka in goal after the former’s poor showing at Old Trafford last time out.

Callum Wilson remains absent for Newcastle, while Joelinton could join him on the sidelines after he came off injured against Man Utd.

Wolverhampton injuries and team news

Wolves talisman Raul Jimenez remains a long term absentee, while Daniel Podence, Willy Boly and Marcal are all still in the treatment room.

With options thin on the ground, Wanderers will likely field a similar team to the one that beat Leeds.
