Wolves News and Form

It has been a run of three straight league wins for Wolves now, having earned those against Leicester, West Ham and Everton. It’s all positive for Wolves at the moment, who fought their way through to the FA Cup fifth round in midweek. Also, in each of their last three league wins, Wolves have scored at least three goals .

So they are in some hot form right now and have actually taken four wins in their last six league outings. They have won back to back fixtures at Molineaux in the EPL, scoring seven goals in total. Not too surprisingly they are going as favourites for this one. Overall only 38% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.

The last two have done so through with Wolves coming alive in front of goal. Wolves have earned a clean sheet now in 31% of their home fixtures and half of their home wins have been by a one-goal margin. Wolves haven’t been involved in a home game in any of their last eleven.

Wolves have scored 79% of their home goals after the half time break in games. 8 of their 15 second-half goals have been produced in the final fifteen minutes of games. Raul Jimenez has three goals in his last two games for them as they drive towards a top ten finish.

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle came away with a 1-0 loss against Spurs in their last league game. That burst their bubble as they had won back to back league games prior to that. There is a pretty clear picture which Newcastle have pained this season. They are undefeated in all games against sides currently 14th or lower.

But they have still lost thirteen games this season, so they haven’t handled themselves against the better sides. Newcastle have only collected the two points from their games against sides who are currently residing in the top half of the league table.

Overall this season Newcastle are a W2 D5 L5 on their top-flight travels. In that sequence of away games, Newcastle have netted just the nine goals. They have collected just the one point from their last four on the road. Less than half of Newcastle’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals.

The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in a third of their road fixtures, but have failed to take one in any of their last four. They have been level at the half time break in eight of their road games. Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle.
