Wolves have some nice from behind them in the Premier League at the moment as they are on a three-match winning streak. They will get a chance to extend that a little further as they play host to Newcastle. The Magpies will start just the two points clear of the drop zone.

Wolves have taken three straight wins in the top flight, beating Leicester, West Ham and Everton in that run. There’s more to that as well because Wolves have produced at least three goals in each of those. So they are pretty hot right now and looking back a little further have four wins in their last six played. On home soil, they have won their last two (scoring seven goals in total). Not too surprisingly they are going as favourites for this one. Overall only 38% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
The last two have done so though. Wolves have taken ac elan sheet in 31% of home games this season and half of their home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They haven’t been involved in a home draw in eleven now. The home record of Wolves this season reads W6 D2 L5. Of the goals which they have produced at home so far this season, 79% of them have been in the second half of matches. 8 of their 15 second-half goals have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Raul Jimenez has three goals in his last two games.
Wolves were 2-1 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Wolves have lost only one of their last four league games against Newcastle (W2 D1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings (all competitions)
Newcastle are unbeaten in four league trips to Wolves (W2 D2)
Newcastle suffered a 1-0 reverse against Spurs last time out. That snapped some positive form as they had won their previous two games. There has been a clear picture of Newcastle’s season. They have remained undefeated home and away against sides 14th or lower in the table this season. Considering they have lost 13 games this season overall you can see that they have had real troubles against the better sides. The Magpies have taken two points from their seven away games against sides currently in the top half of the t table.
Overall this season Newcastle are a W2 D5 L5 on their top flight travels. In that sequence of away games, Newcastle have netted just the nine goals. They have earned only the one point from their last four on the road and have failed to score in two of those four. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Newcastle have earned a clean sheet in 33% of away games but haven’t earned one in their last four. They have been level at the half time break in eight of their road games. Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle.
Wolves are in a confident mood at the moment and are growing in confidence in front of goal as well. They look as if they can hold their own against a low-scoring Newcastle side. Wolves to win to nil.

Tottenham clutched victory from the jaws of defeat on Wednesday night as they left it late to come from behind to beat Watford at home. That was an important effort from them as well as they struggle through this difficult period without Harry Kane. Next up for the Lilywhites are Newcastle who pulled off one of the shocks of the season in beating Manchester City in midweek. Read our Tottenham v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
Spurs looked to be heading to their third defeat in five Premier League games, trailing at home against Watford on Wednesday. But they came up with two goals inside the final 10 mins to turn the match on its head and bank themselves three points. That does leave them with back-to-back wins in the league, and both of those victories incidentally were 2-1 scorelines for them.
Tottenham have produced a home record of W7 L4 this season in the Premier League. That home win over Watford on Wednesday snapped a two-match losing sequence that they were on at Wembley. So that three points which they got were hugely important in terms of their push for a top-four finish.
Tottenham have produced 20 goals at home this season, conceding 11. Home and away combined Spurs have come up with just the one clean sheet in their last five Premier League fixtures. 64% of their home games this season have ended up over 2.5 goals, while they have taken a clean sheet in 27% of home fixtures.
Spurs are on a three-match streak at home without a clean sheet behind them. Of the league goals which they have conceded at Wembley this season 64% of them have come after the halftime break. Spurs have opened the scoring in seven of their 11 league home games, and they have been leading at the halftime break in six of those. Can the Lilywhites keep themselves just ticking over?
Spurs collected a 2-1 away win at St James’ Park back in August
Newcastle have lost their last three against the Lilywhites
The Magpies have won three of their last four away games in the EPL against Spurs
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven league meetings
Newcastle pulled off one of the shocks of the season on Tuesday night as they produced a 2-1 victory over Manchester City, which was after having fallen behind in the first minute of the game. That leaves the Magpies with back-to-back league wins now and suddenly their survival hopes have been boosted massively.
Those two recent victories though were both at home and out on their travels, they have only won twice this season. Newcastle’s overall way record is W2 D5 L4 this term. All four of those away defeats have been against sides currently sitting in the top six.
The Magpies have only scored nine goals on their travels this season, with only 45% of their away games ending up over 2.5 goals. Newcastle are winless in their last three out on the road, collecting just one point in that sequence.
Newcastle have earned a clean sheet in 36% of their away games but they are without one in three. Newcastle have been level at half-time in seven of their 11 away games this season. They have conceded 64% of their 14 away goals in the second half of matches. Only Cardiff and Huddersfield have produced fewer league goals and Newcastle this season.
The Magpies can frustrate teams at times with their set up, but they don’t look likely to win away at a top-four side at all. Spurs will be happy to get across the line with a one-goal margin victory, which appeals to us.

The Magpies gave themselves a lift with a big win over Cardiff last time out. That moved them out of the relegation zone. They get a tough match to follow that now though as they face Man City.

Man City 1/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Newcastle got themselves an important three points last time out in the Premier League. They got a big 3-0 home win over Cardiff. That saw them move out of the Premier League relegation zone at the expense of the Bluebirds. Newcastle’s home record this season in the top flight is pretty poor, standing at just W3 D1 L8. They were on a four-match winless streak of form (D1 L3) before their victory over Cardiff. Newcastle have produced just 10 goals at St James’ Park this season. None of Newcastle’s home games this term have gone over 3.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 25% of home fixtures. Going back to their lack of scoring, Newcastle have failed to score in 42% of their home fixtures. Of the eight home defeats which they have suffered this season five of them have been by a one-goal margin only. Just twice this season have Newcastle been leading at the half-time break on home soil. Just three times have they open the scoring in a home game as well. There are going to have to dig deep because they face Tottenham in the very next fixture after having faced the Citizens.
Man City edged out a 2-1 scoreline at home against Newcastle in September
The Citizens are on a three-match winning streak against the Magpies
Newcastle are winless in six in all competitions against the Citizens
Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings
Manchester City are fully back in their groove now and they are on a four-match winning streak in the top flight. Their December troubles look far behind them now and the Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games. They have also earned back-to-back clean sheets in the top flight. So far at this season in their three games played against sides currently residing in the bottom half of the table, Manchester City have won each of them. In fact, they scored a total of 11 goals in goals three such fixtures.
Manchester City have taken back-to-back away League wins beating Southampton 3-1 and then Huddersfield 3-0. City have averaged exactly 2 goals per game away from home this season. 55% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals and the Citizens have taken a clean sheet in 55% of their away games as well. Each of their last seven League games, home and away combined have ended over 2.5 goals. The Citizens have been leading at the half-time break in seven of their of 11 away fixtures. City have opened the scoring in eight of their road games this term and have scored 64% of their away goals in the first half of matches.
Manchester City know they can’t take their foot off the gas. They struggled in the first meeting against Newcastle, but still, they have to be backed to get the win. Man City can get a victory with a clean sheet behind them.

Newcastle dropped into the relegation zone last weekend and they had to go through an extra midweek game in an FA Cup replay.

Only Fulham have a worse EPL record than Cardiff this season
Newcastle are only one of two sides to have scored fewer league goals than Cardiff have
The draw has the most appeal here. Cardiff held out for an important point in the end against Huddersfield last weekend. Newcastle have had a really poor season on home soil and we can see the visitors digging in and doing enough for a point.

Newcastle lifted themselves with three points out at second-from-bottom Huddersfield last weekend. That was a good three points for the Magpies who now play host to bottom side Fulham this weekend. After a home defeat against West Ham last weekend the Cottagers remain in heaps of trouble. Read our Newcastle v Fulham betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 18th, 2018 at 1:37 p.m.)
Newcastle collected a very good three points for themselves last weekend out on the road at Huddersfield. That haul of points left the Magpies four points clear of the relegation zone. It also snapped a three-match winless streak of form that they had been on in the top flight. Their form at St James’ Park is W2 D0 L7 in the Premier League this season. In that sequence of games, the Magpies have come up with seven goals. Despite that low tally still 67% of their fixtures at St James’ Park have gone over 2.5 goals.
It’s just the one home clean sheet from Newcastle this season and they have lost their last two on home soil. Those were defeats against West Ham and Wolves. Newcastle have conceded 15 goals in their nine home games. Both teams have scored in 56% of league games at St James’ Park this season. They have found themselves leading at the half time break in just one home game this season. Three points for Newcastle at home on the weekend would put further distance between themselves and one of the teams beneath them.
This is the first meeting since the 2016/17 Championship season
Fulham are on a three-match winning streak against the Magpies
Newcastle have won three of their last four home games against Fulham (L1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings
Four of the last five meetings have produced a 1-0 home win
The Cottagers lost 2-0 at home against West Ham last time out and remain in a whole world of trouble at the foot of the table. They have lost their last two Premier League games and now are D1 L3 in their last four played. So there has been little change of fortunes since Claudio Ranieri arrived. They have lost their two away fixtures in the top flight under the Italian so far, but they were tough games at Chelsea and Manchester United to be fair. They still look to be a mess defensively. Fulham are still looking for their first away win of the season, holding a D1 L8 record from nine road games.
The Cottagers have produced only the six goals on the road so far while their defence has taken a beating. They have conceded 24 goals (2.67 average per game) away from Craven Cottage. It is no great surprise that they haven’t earned a clean sheet on their travels yet this term. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three away games. In their last four have games, Fulham have only produced the one goal, which was from the penalty spot against Manchester United. The Cottagers have been trailing at half time in two-thirds of their away games as well. In six of their nine away games, Fulham have also been losing at halftime
The Magpies to get themselves a home win does look a good proposition here. Fulham just aren’t there with their quality and after their win at Huddersfield last weekend, the Magpies should be able to deliver three points against the Cottagers.

This is a clash between two sides looking to snap themselves out of slumps. Huddersfield are currently on a three-match losing streak in the league and start the weekend in the drop zone, with the poorest offensive record in the top flight. Newcastle have managed one point from the last nine available and would see the Terriers pull level with them if they lose. Read our Huddersfield v Newcastle betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
The Terriers went to Arsenal last weekend and suffered a 1-0 loss after putting in a decent showing against an in-form team. That still was their third defeat on the bounce in the top flight and they are back in trouble once again. It is a slump after looking as if they had just turned the corner having taken seven points of nine. Their home form in the top flight reads W1 D2 L5 so far. There was a loss for them in their last home game, a 2-1 reverse against Brighton. The Terriers have struggled for goals, having netted just three at home so far, conceding 10.
They have failed to score in 62% of home games. There has been a home clean sheet for them in 25% of fixtures though so that is some kind of positive. Just 25% of games at the John Smith’s have ended over 2.5 goals this season. Another positive for Huddersfield it that they have at least scored in each of their last three at home in the league. But less positive is the fact that the Terriers have been trailing at half-time in four of their eight home fixtures
There were 1-0 home wins for each last season in the EPL
The season before in the Championship, they traded away wins
The home team has scored exactly one goal in each of the last four meetings
The Magpies lost 2-1 at home against Wolves in their last fixture and they have just hit a sticky patch with two losses in their last three games (D1). Away from St James’ Park this season it hasn’t been good from Newcastle as they have put up numbers of W1 D4 L2 so far. Newcastle though are unbeaten in their last three away games (W1 D2). In their run of away games, this term Newcastle have come up with just the six goals, conceding seven. 43% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals.
The Magpies have earned a clean sheet in 43% of their away games so that has been a pretty decent defensive effort from them. They haven’t been losing at half time in any of their away games this season either. Five of their seven away games have been level at the end of the first half so that’s a strong trend to have a look at. The Magpies haven’t hit a second-half goal on their travels yet his season and there has been no clean sheet in any of their last five league outing for them. In just one of their away games, this season have Newcastle scored the opening goal of a game. Only Southampton and Huddersfield have scored fewer away goals than Newcastle have.
Our prediction is going to be the home win and a much-needed one for the Terriers. They have scored in their last three home games while Newcastle have really struggled in away games against the bottom sides this season.
