Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

, KO: 15:00 Mar 2, 2024, St James’ Park
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to maintain their recent good form as they travel to Newcastle United for a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Wolves are brimming with confidence at the moment and can avoid defeat against Newcastle, who have been far from their best lately.

Newcastle United have struggled to find their best form lately and head into Saturday’s clash with just two wins from their last nine Premier League matches. They have suffered five defeats in that run, including a 4-1 thrashing at Arsenal in their previous fixture.

Dealing with a lengthy injury list, Newcastle United have failed to capture last season’s fine showings and are one point behind Wolves on the standings. However, they will head into Saturday’s clash with some positivity after reaching the FA Cup quarterfinals following a penalty shootout victory over Blackburn Rovers.

Among the recent problems for Newcastle United is a poor record at St James’ Park, where they are winless in their last four matches. Eddie Howe’s men have drawn the last two in that run and played out a 2-2 scoreline with Bournemouth in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of the form sides in the Premier League at the moment having won four of their last five matches across all competitions. They claimed a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United last time out in the Premier League before edging out Brighton by the same scoreline in their FA Cup fifth round clash.

Having found their rhythm since the turn of the year, Wolverhampton Wanderers could make a late push for a European place. However, Gary O’Neil’s men have some ground to cover as they currently sit ninth on the table, nine points off the top five.

One of the more impressive aspects of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ recent form is their record on their travels. They are unbeaten in their last six away matches, winning the last three fixtures in that run.

Players to watch

Anthony Gordon has two goals in the last three matches for Newcastle United and the forward is priced at 12/5 by Unibet. Alexander Isak is the leading scorer for the Magpies with 10 Premier League goals and the striker could be worth keeping an eye on in the same market at 13/10 by Paddy Power.

Hwang Hee-Chan remains the leading scorer for Wolverhampton Wanderers with 10 Premier League goals. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 23/10 by Unibet to get on the score sheet on Saturday.

Anything else catch the eye?

There were over 3.5 goals in the reverse fixture and a repeat is priced at 6/4 by Unibet. There have been more goals after the break in Newcastle United’s last three matches and Saturday’s clash could be tipped to follow a similar pattern at 21/20 by 888Sport.
