Wolverhampton Wanderers haven’t attracted seven Premier League (PL) matches (W4, L3), guaranteeing three first-class wins in their initial five rounds of the period (L2) unexpectedly since 1979/80. Those triumphs all came ‘to nil’ with the scoring bound to one half while just Sheffield United’s association games saw fewer objectives than their normal of 2.4 objectives per game before this round.
At home, ‘Wolves’ scored precisely once in both group coordinates this term (W1, L1) however with seven clean sheets in nine PL games at Molineux (W5, D2, L2), they are difficult to beat here. Regularly thriving by striking late, it’s remarkable that they didn’t score before the 40th moment in any of their last seven home alliance matches (W4, D1, L2).
Newcastle United, in the interim, have made a conflicting beginning to their PL crusade (W2, D1, L2), with both of their successes coming by means of two-objective edges and the two thrashings through three-objective edges. Their alliance games have seen huge early and late activity: four objectives (25%) before the fifteenth moment and seven (43.75%) after the 75th.
The ‘Jaybirds’ are, nonetheless, unbeaten in three PL away matches (W1, D2) however are yet to score before the 55th moment out and about this class season. Worryingly, they’ve surrendered a normal of nine corners for every PL away game this season – a group high in front of this round.
Players to watch: Raúl Jiménez has scored three (60%) of Wolves’ five PL objectives this term. Seven of his last eight serious strikes opened the scoring.
Callum Wilson has had a major effect since marking in September, scoring in both of Newcastle’s PL away games this term. Every one of the four of his class strikes this season came after the 55th moment.
Hot streak: Newcastle has scored in any event once in each of the five past PL outings to Molineux (W1, D4), albeit those strikes preceded the 65th moment.
