The Premier League is back in action this weekend as Newcastle United host Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James’ Park. The Magpies are desperate to end their winless run, having not tasted victory in their last five league games.
Wolves, meanwhile, have been in good form of late, winning three of their last four league matches. They are currently in seventh place in the table, just two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
The two sides have met twice this season, with Wolves winning both games. The first was a 1-0 victory at Molineux in October, while the second was a 3-1 win at St James’ Park in December.
Newcastle have been struggling for form in recent weeks, but they will be hoping to turn things around against Wolves. They have been boosted by the return of striker Callum Wilson, who has been out since December with a hamstring injury.
The Magpies have also been boosted by the return of defender Jamaal Lascelles, who has been out since February with a knee injury.
Wolves, meanwhile, will be without defender Willy Boly, who is out with a hamstring injury. They will also be without midfielder Ruben Neves, who is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. Kick-off is at 3pm BST.
Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers is a crucial match for both sides. The Magpies are desperate to end their winless run, while Wolves are looking to keep their European hopes alive. It promises to be an exciting game, and one that could have a big impact on the rest of the season.
