Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle move away from danger?

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United side find themselves in early relegation danger prior to their Sunday afternoon encounter against Wolves as they hover just above the bottom three, and avoiding dropping down into the relegation zone by virtue of Southampton’s heavy 9-0 defeat to Leicester City on Friday night.

Newcastle have managed to register just 2 league wins to date in this new Premier League season, and as Steve Bruce wasn’t the most popular choice upon his appointment for The Magpies, the pressure is now firmly on for him to deliver results.

The hosts have won just 1 of their last 6 matches overall, which was a narrow 1-0 win over Bruce’s old club, Manchester United, but they have just lost just once at home so far this season which was a 1-0 loss to Arsenal.

Steve Bruce’s ‘modus operandi’ is to keep things tight at the back first and foremost, so that’s why we haven’t seen many goals at St James’ Park within a home record to date of 1-2-1 2/2, and along with departure of former striker, Ayoze, Newcastle are struggling for goals right now.

Wolves Prediction – Can Wolves extend unbeaten run?

The west midlands club bring a 4-match unbeaten run in the Premier League into this clash at St James’ Park and a 7-match unbeaten sequence overall in all competitions thanks to their European exploits in the Europa League.

Wolves head into this clash in confident mood as they recorded a valuable 2-1 win away at Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League and having also collected recent wins against Watford and most impressive of all, a 2-0 win away at Manchester City, the visitors will fancy their chances of further adding to their points tally up in the north-east on Sunday.

However, results away from home have been a little more modest (Manchester City aside), as Wolves have drawn at Leicester City and Crystal Palace and suffered a 3-2 defeat at Everton, but 3 of their 4 away matches to date have seen under 2.5 goals scored.

Indeed, 8 of Wolves’ last 11 away matches have been under the 2.5 goals mark and having been involved in action during the week, I daresay we’re unlikely to see a gung-ho Wolves outfit on the front foot and taking risks going forward here.


Key-Facts – Newcastle United vs Wolves

  • All 4 of Newcastle’s home matches have resulted under 2.5 goals in the EPL
  • 8 of Wolves’ last 11 away matches have been under the 2.5 goals
  • 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have seen under 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

Whilst Newcastle have lost just once at home, they’ve found goals hard to come by under Bruce while Wolves may well be reluctant to take any unnecessary risks going forward here.
