Newcastle News and Form
Newcastle battled their way to a good point in a 1-1 draw at Everton in midweek, despite a severe lack of possession in the fixture. It’s back to home soil on the weekend where they are W2 D0 L6 this season. The two wins in that home form have both been produced in their last three home games though as a positive. Not so good is that in their last fixture at St James’ Park the Magpies were beaten 3-0 by West Ham. There has been just the six home goals produced by Newcastle this season, while they have conceded 13. There has been just the one home clean sheet from them.
62% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals. No league game hosted at St James’ Park this season in the league has produced at least four goals. Four of Newcastle’s six home defeats have been by a one-goal margin and their two wins have both been by a one-goal margin only. Newcastle have been losing at half time in four of their eight home games (W1 D3). In none of their last four league games (home and away combined) have the Magpies managed to earn a clean sheet. Newcastle have opened the scoring in just two home games this season.
Only four teams have collected fewer home points than Newcastle this season. They are the third lowest scorers in the top flight currently.

Wolves News and Form
Wolves enjoyed a tremendous success in midweek with a 2-1 home win over Chelsea after having been trailing at the half time break. It was a rousing performance which saw them snap a six-match winless streak of league form (D1 L5). Out on their travels, this season in the league Wolves have produced a W2 D2 L3 record. They have earned just the one point from their last three away games though. In total Wolves have produced only the five away goals and they have conceded just seven goals on their travels which is good.
Just one of their away games this season in the top flight have made it over 2.5 goals so there’s a strong nod towards a low scoring game appearing here. Wolves have taken a clean sheet in 29% of away games but home and away combined they have failed to bank a clean sheet in any of their last seven EPL games. Wolves have actually scored first in four of their seven road games. Going into the game Wolves hold a six-point advantage over Newcastle in the top flight. Both teams have failed to score in each of the last three meetings between the two clubs.
