Wolverhampton vs. Newcastle / Premier League – At the end of the 26th round of Premier League, we have the unexpectedly good Wolverhampton and a big disappointment Newcastle. The difference of 14 points scored best shows how these rivals have played so far. The Wolves have played five matches without defeat, two of which in the FA Cup and they passed in the next round of the competition. Newcastle was eliminated from the FA Cup, and they were defeated in the championship after two triumphs. Wolverhampton has celebrated with 2-1 in their first this seasons’ duel.
Wolverhampton vs. Newcastle begins 11.02.2019 at 21:00 CET
Wolverhampton is again in the elite rank this season, but it definitely was not expected that they would be so good. More precisely, the Wolves are the best they can be objectively, because they are in the seventh place, and only the best teams are above them on the table. However, the leading six is a lot of points away, and they did not even hope they could be so high. It should also be said that they have four points more than Watford which is below them on the table and in the worst case they will enjoy the position they are currently at for another round.
They have made three major victories and in each of these duels they have achieved at least three goals. They did the same against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup, when they celebrated with 3-2 after a turnover. Jonny Castro has debuted in that match, the last name they have brought in the winter transitional period and he will probably also play now, while striker Jota is questionable, so maybe A.Traore jumps instead.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny Castro – R.Jimenez, A.Traore
It can be said that Newcastle has been playing a bit better lately, although they were defeated in the last round. They have lost three times in the previous five rounds, but it was all against very strong opponents. They were defeated with 2-0 from Manchester, while they played an even better match against Chelsea and lost with a minimum of 2-1. As soon as they met with the weaker rival Cardiff, it was evident that they were in the right rhythm and they celebrated with 3-0. Their best match was the one against the current champion Manchester City, which they mastered sensationally with 2-1 after the turnover. In the last round, they had another strong rival.
They played against Tottenham and they resisted for a long time, but then they received a goal and lost with 1-0. It should also be said that they between these two victories, lost against Watford in the FA Cup. It is logical that coach Benitez did not want to change anything after their victory over Manchester City and it seems that he has made a winning combination because they are not announcing any changes yet. They have brought a worthy reinforcement at the end of the transitional period in the form of offensive player Almiron, but he will now wait for his chance from the reserve bench.
Probable lineups Newcastle: Dubravka – Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Ritchie – A.Perez, Longstaff, Hayden, Atsu – Rondon
Wolverhampton vs. Newcastle PICK
Newcastle is not playing badly at all lately, but their problem now is that Wolverhampton plays even better. The host of this duel is very efficient, so we expect their domination and a victory, at least minimal, to continue their positive series.
