The game between Newcastle and Wolverhampton is the only match on Sunday in the Premier League. Newcastle are on 15 place in the standings, two points ahead of the relegation zone. In the last month, The Magpies improved their performance and have won ten points in five games. Their previous fixture was against Everton and ended as a 1-1 draw.
During the weekend Wolverhampton achieved a fantastic comeback and won against Chelsea with 2-1 at home. This was the first win Wolves had in the previous eight games. The Wanderers are playing unbelievable against the top 6 in the league, and the team have won eight points against them. The club hasn’t scored in their away games in only two occasions – against Leicester and Brighton.
Even after Newcastle improved their form, the team is still shaky in defence. They conceded a goal in every one of their last four games. At home, they had just one clean sheet. Wolverhampton also is not performing great in defence in the previous month, but the same cannot be said for their attack. The team don’t have a problem to score. We expect the tendency to be kept and both sides to score. I will back Both Teams To Score, with Newcastle 2-1 Correct Score.
