Wolverhampton est en train de réaliser un joli coup pour son retour en Premier League avec une belle 7ème place actuelle et ne compte pas baisser au niveau du rythme. Dans une belle période où ils n'ont pas perdu depuis 5 matchs, ils veulent profiter de la réception de Newcastle pour engranger 3 points de plus. Et ils devraient sûrement y arriver au vu de la forme actuelle des Magpies qui ont du mal et ne possèdent qu'une infime marge d'avance sur la zone rouge. On parie sur une victoire des Wolves.
Newcastle's new signing Miguel Almiron should make his debut and I am looking forward to seeing how he gets on. I have seen lots of footage of him and he looks like a player but it will be an interesting night for him because the Premier League is very different to the MLS, and Wolves are a team in form. Of all the teams chasing seventh place, Nuno Espirito Santo's team are definitely the most consistent in terms of performances, and I can see them getting a fourth-straight win on Monday.
The December meeting between the pair resulted in an away win for Wolves by a 2-1 scoreline. The home side come into this fixture off the back of three wins in the league beating Everton 3-1 last time out. Newcastle have won two of their last three fixtures one of which an excellent result against Manchester City. Their away form leaves a lot to be desired winning just two of twelve but they have played five of the top six away from home which would be tough enough for any side. They have a couple of impressive results away at Watford and Everton getting 1-1 draws at both. Wolves will meet a Newcastle side looking to choose their moments and give up a lot of the ball to Wolves. I fancy a draw between the sides as Newcastle do have the quality to trouble most sides.
Wolves will really fancy their chances on Monday night. They have won 7 of their last 11 in the league and 4 of their last 6 at Molineux, including a fantastic win against Chelsea. Newcastle, meanwhile, have lost 4 of their last 7 league games and 3 of their last 4 on the road. They have won just 2 away games all season, so backing a Wolves Win here.
Wolverhampton in last weekend picked up a potentially crucial 3-1 win away to Everton, keeping them in 7th place in the Premier League. 7th place is likely to yield a Europa League qualifying spot, so a victory against one of their main challengers for that position is a massive boost to their chances of continental qualification. There’s no doubting that they deserve it either. The Molineux club have lived up to all of the high expectations placed upon them since their promotion from the Championship. That win over The Toffees made it 3 wins on the bounce in the Premier League, and they have only lost 3 of their last 11 league outings. Newcastle are having a less successful season, with a dismal start to the campaign still haunting them as we head into the business end of the season. Their unfortunate loss to Spurs last weekend leaves them 15th in the table, just 2 points clear of the first of the relegation spots.
