 ESPN Premier League Picks Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Newcastle United

The high flying Wolves host Newcastle on Monday in the Premier League, Wolves are looking for their fourth consecutive win – a landmark which has not been achieved, since January 1972 season. Newcastle, on the other hand, have won two of their last three matches which have kept them out of the relegation zone. A win here for Rafa Benitez side would see them five points clear of the bottom three. Wolves have already beaten Newcastle in the reverse fixture this season and would be looking to do a double over The Magpies in the same season. A thumping 3-0 win over Cardiff and an unexpected victory against Manchester City (2-1) had started a winning momentum for Newcastle, but a narrow 1-0 loss at Wembley to Spurs has ended their streak. Even a defeat for Wolves would see them stay on 7th in the table.

Wolves entered the Premier League with a star-studded lineup, and the objectives were not just to survive in the league but to stamp their authority on their opponents; their performance this season has shown what they’re capable of doing. Nuno’s side has made a habit of upsetting big teams this season, not just in the Premier League that goes for all competitions. Having said, Wolves would not take Newcastle likely if they are to win – The Magpies are four games unbeaten traveling away to Wolves. Wolves would be concerned about the fitness of Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre. Should Jota be unavailable for the match, expect Helder Costa to partner Raul Jimenez in the attack.

Every game from here on for Newcastle is crucial to their chances of surviving in the Premier League. Benitez has said quite often that staying in the league is their number one aim. The Magpies have been boosted with the arrival of record signing Miguel Almiron but is doubtful to start at the Molineux Stadium having just arrived at the club. Return to full fitness for players include – Ki Sung – Yeung, Paul Dummett, Mohamed Diame and Karl Darlow it would be interesting to see starting lineup. The defence has looked organized in recent outings and knowing that Wolves are aggressive opponents they would want that back four to come to the party.

ESPN Premier League Picks Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Newcastle United

It’s a clash between two completely different sides in terms of tactics. Wolves have some match-winning players who can upset any team with their attacking display while Newcastle will look to play to their strengths and wait for their chances on the counter. If Benitez’s plan works, Newcastle could salvage a valuable point. I’ll go for a draw here but expect an entertaining match.

Wolves 2 – 2 Newcastle
