Wolves to silence St James’ Park


Buoyed by their midweek victory against Chelsea, Wolves can make it two wins in a row by triumphing in a low-scoring match at Newcastle United.

Rafa Benitez’s side have lost six of their eight Premier League matches on Tyneside this season and, although they did well to pick up a point at Everton in midweek, they were dreadful last Saturday when losing 3-0 to West Ham United on Tyneside.

Under 1.5 goals in the match @ 9/5

Newcastle, who had won three games in a row before the setback against the Hammers, have only scored six goals at home while Wolves’ tally on the road is just five, although Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have only lost three of their seven Premier League away matches to date.

There may only be one goal in the match with Wolves available at 25/4 to win the encounter 1-0 while the visitors are 21/2 to triumph 2-0, as they did when the two teams last met at St James’ Park in the Championship in September 2016.

The last Premier League clash between the Magpies and Wolves on Tyneside occurred in 2011/12 when the match ended 2-2. Another draw on Sunday is available at 43/20.

Wolves to keep a clean sheet @ 17/10

After picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at Everton, Fabian Schar will miss Sunday’s game as he is suspended but there is some good news for Benitez as Matt Ritchie is available for selection again after serving his ban.

Salomon Rondon, who netted against Everton in midweek, is 7/1 to score the first goal against Wolves, while Ritchie is 7/2 to score at any time.

Wolves, who had only taken one point from six matches before beating Chelsea, have failed to keep a clean sheet since September when they beat Southampton 2-0. However, they can bring that eight-match sequence to an end by keeping one against Newcastle.
