Wolves vs Newcastle United Prediction
Wolves failed to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat at the hands of the league leaders and were taken down by Watford on the road. Despite entering that latter clash as the favorites to come away with all three points, their foes pulled off a stunning display to post a 2-1 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes.
The hosts have now admitted defeat in three of their past five clashes in the Premier League, garnering just six points from a possible fifteen in the process.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, are on a dismal losing streak of their own at the moment. The guests have stumbled in each of their previous three PL fixtures on the trot, the most recent of which was against Leicester at home by a hefty 3-0 scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that the Magpies have not been coping any better on the road. They have come away with the win on just three occasions in their last ten outings.
In sharp contrast, Wolves have lost just twice in front of the home crowd. As such, it looks like Newcastle United are about to slump even further down the ladder.
Furthermore, the hosts have been depending on their frontline to outscore their opponents as they have just not looked sharp in their own defensive third lately. The home side have kept a clean sheet in just two of their last ten games here, and have conceded fourteen goals to go with it as well.
Taking into account that Newcastle have been consistent in finding the back of the net in each of their last six visits here too, expect both teams to have their names on the scoresheet this Saturday.
