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.

While it has not been the most convincing stuff from Everton this season, they will be going out in search of landing back-to-back wins on Saturday. After taking an away win at Huddersfield, they get the chance to follow up on home soil as they face Wolves. Wolves enjoyed a big success in midweek in thumping West Ham.

Everton got themselves a very welcome three points on a trip to bottom side Huddersfield on Tuesday. They got a goal on the board early in the game, but couldn’t find a second, ending up winning the game 1-0. They did finish the game with 10 men. It is back to Goodison Park for them on the weekend where they have a W6 D3 L3 Premier League record this season. Things haven’t been going too well for them there. A 2-0 win over Bournemouth in their last home fixture snapped a four-match winless streak on Merseyside for them (D2 L2). Overall home and away Everton have lost five of their last eight league fixtures (D3).
The Toffees have averaged 1.7 goals per home game this season and 33% of their games at Goodison Park have ended up over 3.5 goals. Everton have taken a clean sheet in a third of their home fixtures and in fact, four of their five home wins this season have been with one. Everton have had a big trend of being level at the half-time break in Premier League games this season. In 16 of their 24 games played this term, they have been drawing at half-time. 11 of those 16 half-time draws were 0-0 scorelines. Everton have scored the opening goal in eight of their 12 home games played.
Everton earned a point in a 2-2 draw at Wolves earlier this season
Three of the last five meetings have ended in a draw
Everton have scored at least two goals in three of their last four against Wolves
Wolves are winless in their last eight trips to Goodison Park
If anyone needs a model of how to survive in the Premier League following Championship promotion, they should just look at Wolves. Wolves took a 3-0 home win over West Ham on Tuesday making it back-to-back league victories for them. They produced seven goals in those two games as well. Overall this season away in the top flight, Wolves have posted a W4 D3 L3 record. Three of those away wins have been against sides who are currently sat in the bottom half of the table. However, they have lost just one of their four away games played against sides currently in the top eight.
Wolves lost 3-0 Manchester City their last away game, but in the away fixture before that they took a fantastic win at Tottenham. Wolves have averaged exactly one goal per away game this season and they have been defensively tight as well, conceding just 13 in those 11 games. Only 36% of Wolves away games have ended over 2.5 goals. If you look at the bigger picture of their away form they have only suffered one defeat (the game at Man City) in their last four road fixtures. Of the away goals they have produced 73% have been after the half-time break, and Wolves have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last seven on the road.
Everton can land a bit of home cheer in this one. It’s not been all doom and gloom at Goodison Park this season and they can get across the line with three points in this one. It’ll probably be a tight game though, so Everton to win by a one-goal margin.

You have to admire the way that Wolves have gone about their business this season in the Premier League. They start this game one point above West Ham inside the top 10.

West Ham 11/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 25th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Wolves took a dramatic 4-3 victory at home against Leicester in their last Premier League fixture. That moved them onto a W5 D2 L5 record on home soil in the top flight. What the victory did as well, was it snapped a two-match losing streak that they were on at home. So that was a big result for Wolves with Diogo Jota netting a hat-trick in the game. Wolves have scored 16 goals at home this season and have conceded 18. Just 33% of their home games have made it over the 2.5 goals line this season. A large part of that is because Wolves have earned a clean sheet in a quarter of their home fixtures.
They haven’t managed to dig out a clean sheet in any of their last three on home soil, actually conceding at least two goals in each of those fixtures. Six of the nine League wins that Wolves have earned this season have all been by a one-goal margin. Of the home goals that Wolves outscored, 75% of them have been in the second half of fixtures. Just twice have they been leading at the halftime break on home soil. Wolves have conceded the opening goal in seven of their 12 home fixtures this season. Victory for them at home on Tuesday would really solidify their place inside the top 10.
Wolves and a 1-0 away win at West Ham at the start of September
From the five previous EPL fixtures, things are even with two wins each and one draw
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
Each of the last four games between have ended under 2.5 goals
West Ham have been on a bit of a rollercoaster with their results lately as they are W2 D1 L3 in their last six League fixtures. West Ham have struggled on the road recently having lost back-to-back games against Burnley and then Bournemouth by 2-0 score lines. Before that the way slump they have been on a three-match winning streak on their travels, unbeaten in five. The overall way record that West Ham have produced in the EPL this season is W4 D2 L5.
West Ham have produced 13 goals away from home this season, conceding 16. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. The Hammers have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last three games on the road. Overall this season they have taken a clean sheet in 18% of away games, but they have failed to score in 36% of road games. Victory would lift the Hammers above Wolves in the standings and a good finish in midweek action as high as seventh.
Wolves are capable of pulling out the goods on home soil in this one. Both can be a bit hit and miss, but the home side may just have that extra bit of intensity with the crowd behind them. Home win.

Wolves collected three points at home against Bournemouth last weekend to make it three straight EPL wins. Those points left them in seventh place last weekend. This season on home soil in the top flight Wolves have posted a W4 D2 L3 record. They are on a two-match winning streak at home, one of those being a victory over Chelsea. Only 33% of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals and that has been down to how well their defence has done overall. They have produced 12 goals in their ten home games, conceding 11. Wolves have earned a clean sheet in 33% of their home games
Wolves have been leading at half time in just one home game this season. In their last two home games, they have scored exactly two goals in each. So things are reading positive for them. They have netted in each of their last four Premier League games (home and away combined). 83% of their home goals this season have happened in the second half of games. Only four teams have a better defensive record than Wolves have in this season’s EPL, but Friday’s opponents are one of those.
This is the first league meeting since the 2011/12 EPL season
They met in 2017 in an FA Cup tie at Anfield which Wolves won 2-1

Wolves have failed to score in their last three home games against Liverpool

They have averaged just over two goals per game away from Anfield. 66% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. It has been just the five goals they have conceded away this season and have taken a clean sheet in 44% of their road games
They have won 44% of their away games to nil this season.

They are currently on a nine-match scoring streak in the top flight. They have also scored the opening goal in seven of their nine away games this season as well. Only Spurs have a better away record than Liverpool this season (but Spurs have played a game more). But it is Jurgen Klopp’s men who currently boast the best defensive record in the EPL.
As well as Wolves have done lately it is still hard to see an upset happening in this. Liverpool have shown that they know how to dig in and grind out away results when they have to. We can see that happening here. Liverpool to win to nil.

Wolves have had a positive upturn in form after a 2-1 win at Newcastle last weekend. That is back to back wins (both 2-1 scorelines) that they have picked up now. Considering they had gone D1 L5 in their six games prior to that, it’s a massive upturn from them. At Molineux this season Wolves are W3 D2 L3 this season. In their last home game, they defied the odds in putting a 2-1 victory over Chelsea on the board after having been trailing 1-0 at the break. That snapped a three-match losing streak at home. Wolves have tallied 10 home goals, conceding 11
Only 38% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals and in the league fixtures at Molineux this season, both teams have scored in 50% of those games. Wolves have not found themselves being ahead at the halftime break in any of their home games this season (D4 L4). Of the 10 home goals that they have scored, nine of them have been after the half time break. Wolves have opened the scoring in 3 of 8 league home games this term. As a huge positive for Wolves, only each of the current top four have a better defensive record than Wolves have
This is the first meeting since the 2014/15 Championship season
Bournemouth took back to back 2-1 wins over Wolves in that season
The Cherries are on a three-match winning streak against Wolves (all 2-1 wins)
Wolves are winless in five against Bournemouth (D2 L3)
The Cherries took a 4-0 battering at the Vitality last weekend as Liverpool paid a visit. That is just a poor W1 L5 record that the Cherries have bagged in their last six games now in the EPL. In their last away game, they suffered a 3-1 loss at Man City but that’s almost a given for anyone going there. Bournemouth’s overall record this season on their travels is W3 L4 and in that run of away games, they have scored 11 and conceded 12 goals. A big 86% of their road games have made it above the 2.5 goal line.
43% of away games involving Bournemouth this season have ended up over the 3.5 goal line in fact. The Cherries have taken a clean sheet in 29% of their away games and they have scored the opening goal in two of their seven road games. In five of their last six league outings, Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals and they have lost their last two EPL away games. They have put together a four-match scoring streak away from the Vitality in the top flight (W2 L2) and have been a threat in front of goal all season.
* (betting odds taken from December 11th, 2018 at 10:03 pm)
The draw in the match outright appeals the most for us in this one. Wolves have done much better lately, but they aren’t a high-scoring side. Bournemouth have plenty of goals in them and may be able to do enough to bag themselves a point at Molineux.
