              Newcastle vs Wolves Predictions & Betting Tips

              Newcastle host Wolves in what should be a competitive game in the Premier League at St James’ Park. Both sides will be hoping for three points to climb the table.

              • Date: 02/03/24
              • Kick-off time: 15:00
              • Venue: St James’ Park

              The hosts Newcastle will be looking to bounce back from a crushing 4-1 defeat to Arsenal last weekend. They were dominated throughout and as a result now sit in ninth, seven points behind the top six. After finishing in the top four last season, they face a tough battle for a second consecutive season of European football. A victory this weekend would see them keep pace with the teams above them and potentially cut the gap, but a defeat could allow the chasing teams below to overtake.

              Wolves’ victory over Sheffield United at the weekend has seen them leapfrog the Magpies, as they are now eighth. Given the low expectations of them prior to the season, Gary O’Neil has done an excellent job as they are firmly in the hunt for a European place. Three points this weekend would create a healthy four-point gap between them and their opponents.

              Both teams struggle to keep the ball out of the net, so goals should be expected at each end. Eddie Howe’s side have a much more potent attack, but the presence of Hwang Hee-Chan, who has scored 10 goals this season, could cause the Newcastle backline some problems. They will be hurt by the absence of Matheus Cunha, however. Alexander Isak made his return in the game against Arsenal which was a huge boost for Howe.

              Since 2018, these two sides have met in the Premier League 11 times, with both winning two games each. However, Wolves’ two defeats have come in the last four meetings. Six of the seven draws finished 1-1, so it would not be a surprise to see a similar scoreline this weekend. The visitors have won just once in the last five, with that coming all the way back in 2021. Hwang scored a brace in a 2-1 win.

              The points were shared in the reverse fixture earlier this season, as Wolves came from behind twice. Callum Wilson opened the scoring, before Mario Lemina levelled the score. Wilson grabbed his second on the stroke of half-time. Hwang found the back of the net with 20 minutes left to make it 2-2.

              Newcastle Team News

              Newcastle have a number of long-term absentees, with no returns imminent. Callum Wilson had chest surgery which will rule him out for a while. Joelinton and Nick Pope also remain sidelined.

              Wolves Team News

              Matheus Cunha is Wolves’ one absentee, as he is out with a hamstring injury. Though first feared to keep him out for longer, he may return by the end of next month.

              Form Guide

              Newcastle Form Guide

              In their last six games, Newcastle have won two, drawn two and lost one. Their most recent outing came against high-flying Arsenal, but they couldn’t get the better of the Gunners as they fell 4-1 at the Emirates.

              The first game in this stretch was a trip to Villa Park to take on an Aston Villa side who have been strong at home all season. However, they scored two goals in four minutes to take a 2-0 lead into half-time. An Alex Moreno own goal shortly after the restart put them three up and out of sight. Ollie Watkins pulled one back, but it was just a consolation as the Magpies took all the points.

              This preceded a thrilling 4-4 draw with Luton at St James’ Park. Sean Longstaff scored two goals either side of a Gabriel Osho equaliser. The Hatters then fought back to take the lead in the second half, going up 4-2 with half an hour to go. The hosts did not back down and came back to level the game with goals from Kieran Trippier and Harvey Barnes.

              They quickly got back to winning ways with a 3-2 away victory at Nottingham Forest. They took the lead twice in the first half, but were pegged back on both occasions. Bruno Guimaraes scored his second of the afternoon to win his side the game with 25 minutes to go. However, Eddie Howe’s side’s inconsistencies continued at home to Bournemouth, as they dropped points again. Dominic Solanke gave the visitors the lead but Anthony Gordon soon got Newcastle back on level terms from the spot. Antoine Semenyo restored the Cherries’ lead before Matt Richie salvaged a draw in the 92nd minute.

              On Tuesday night, the Magpies progressed through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on penalties following a thrilling 1-1 draw against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. Newcastle initially took the lead via a goal from Anthony Gordon with just 19 minutes to go, however, a 79th-minute equaliser from Sammie Szmodics forced the game to extra time, of which neither side could find a winner in the additional 30 minutes, meaning that Martin Dubravka would have to make himself the hero in the shootout.

              Wolves Form Guide

              In their last six games, Wolves have won four and lost two. This stretch began with a heartbreaking 4-3 defeat to Manchester United at Molineux. United had taken an early lead through Marcus Rashford which was doubled shortly after by Rasmus Hojlund. The hosts pulled one back in the 71st minute from the spot as Pablo Sarabia converted. This comeback was shortlived, however, as Scott McTominay added a third almost immediately. With the visitors comfortably heading for victory, Max Kilman found the back of the net to set up a nervy finish. They thought they had snatched a point with a 95th-minute equaliser from Pedro Neto. Youngster Kobbie Mainoo then won the game for the Red Devils with a fine finish to stun the home fans.

              They responded excellently to this late defeat with a big 4-2 win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea. The Blues had gone in front thanks to Cole Palmer, but a Matheus Cunha strike and own goal put them ahead at the break. Cunha completed a hat-trick in the second half to secure a huge victory. A defeat to Brentford dampened the mood, however, as Christian Norgaard and Ivan Toney goals condemned Wolves to a 2-0 loss.

              Another impressive win came at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as they beat Spurs 2-1. Joao Gomes scored either side of a Dujan Kulusevski equaliser to take home another crucial three points.

              Wolves progressed through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Wednesday night as they earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at Molineux thanks to a second-minute goal from Mario Lemina. Gary O'Neil's men will face Coventry City in the next round of the cup in mid-March.
