Newcastle vs Wolves Prediction & Match Preview



27 February 2021 21:00 CET Premier League St James' Park

There will be fireworks when Newcastle United and Wolverhampton go head to head at St. James’ Park in the Premier League round 26. 

The Magpies have been anything but impressive in the national championship this season, with the team sitting in 17th position in the standings, only three points clear of the relegation zone. 

Newcastle United head into the match following back-to-back losses to Man Utd and Chelsea, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping.

The Wolves, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late. 

Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and they are surely capable of spoiling Newcastle’s party at St. James’ Park. 

Newcastle key attacker Callum Wilson remains in the recovery room, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.

Team News:

Karl Darlow has produced a string of stellar performances in the Newcastle goal this season, but he is reportedly set to be replaced by Martin Dubravka after his underwhelming showing at Old Trafford.

As well as long-term absentee Callum Wilson, Newcastle forward Joelinton was forced off against United with back trouble and may not make the cut this weekend.

Dwight Gayle or Andy Carroll could therefore be in contention to start this game, and Bruce also expects to have Federico Fernandez back in the fold for Saturday.

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez continues to make great strides in his recovery as he was pictured with the ball at his feet in training, but he still has a long road ahead of him.

Marcal was brought on as a substitute against Leeds but lasted a little over 20 minutes before succumbing to another muscular problem, so he is not expected to make the journey to St James' Park.

Daniel Podence and Willy Boly also remain sidelined for the visitors, who are expected to keep changes to a minimum amid their strong run of form.

Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis; Hayden, Willock, Shelvey; Almiron, Gayle, Saint-Maximin

Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny; Traore, Jose, Neto
