šŸ”„Wolves v NewcastlešŸ”„[LIVE]

Hope yā€™all had a good festive break and feeling refreshed and ready to finish in the top 4 and win the Europa cup

Wolves remain without Diogo Jota because of the dead leg he sustained against Watford on New Year's Day.

Patrick Cutrone appears set to join Fiorentina, but Morgan Gibbs-White is finally available after a back problem.

Newcastle's injury problems are easing, with Ciaran Clark, Paul Dummett, Jetro Willems, Andy Carroll, Miguel Almiron and Dwight Gayle all fit again.
@ConorMcNamaraIE: With 12 Europa League games on top of their domestic matches, Wolves' gruelling schedule was bound to take its toll at some stage.

Back-to-back league defeats against Liverpool and Watford - followed by last weekend's FA Cup draw with Manchester United - mean that Nuno Espirito Santo is now looking for a first win in four games.

Having appeared to turn a corner with three wins in four games from the start of December, Newcastle have now lost their past three Premier League matches.

On the plus side, Steve Bruce says "there's light at the end of the tunnel" concerning the Magpies' recent injury crisis.

VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo: "We need to bring in players and we will bring players. It needs time, needs proper decisions for us to bring players that can really help us and bring different characteristics to our squad.

"We have to evaluate what we have, the squad, what and how we want to proceed competing, and that has a final weight on the decisions you make."

Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce: "We've got to find that resilience again and we've got to stop making individual errors. That's cost us badly in the last couple of games, especially away.

"We'll have to defend well, catch them, and create something at the other end."

LAWRO'S PREDICTION Fack off Lawro you caaaant

As a manager, Steve Bruce has had league wins over Wolves with six different clubs
He has earned victory with Huddersfield, Crystal Palace, Birmingham, Sunderland, Hull and Aston Villa.
MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

Wolves have failed to win any of their past five home league matches against Newcastle (D2, L3).
Six of the nine Premier League meetings have ended in a draw, including the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves could lose three consecutive league games for the first time this season, equalling their longest losing streak under Nuno Espirito Santo.
They have kept just two clean sheets in their 10 league fixtures at Molineux in 2019-20.
Nuno Espirito Santo's side have conceded the first goal in an unrivalled 14 league games this season, including the last five in a row.
None of Wolves' last 49 Premier League goals have been scored by an Englishman, excluding own goals.
Raul Jimenez is one goal short of equalling Steven Fletcher's club record of 22 Premier League goals.
Joao Moutinho has provided five Premier League assists since the start of November - a tally bettered only by Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Newcastle United

Newcastle could lose four consecutive league games for the first time since May 2018.
The Magpies have led for just 342 minutes in the Premier League this season - only Wolves and Crystal Palace have spent less time in front.
Newcastle are the only club not to have been awarded or conceded a Premier League penalty this season.
Newcastle need one more goal to reach 500 away goals in the Premier League - they would be the ninth team to reach that mark.
Andy Carroll has failed to score in 27 Premier League appearances, but he has provided assists for four of Newcastle's last six league goals.
