Wolverhampton Vs Newcastle United Preview
Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves seem to be moving from strength to strength, moving up the Top half to the 7th place from the 11th a couple of months ago. They host Newcastle on February 11th, Monday night, confident on the back of three straight Premier League wins over Leicester City, West Ham United and Everton.
The hosts have the excellent Raul Jimenez for their vaulted rankings to thank. The Mexican has scored nine times and combined with Diogo Jota form a fearsome forward duo. The Wolves have been sharp, clinical and full of creativity of late and most of all, without any injury issues, going into Monday night's game. Defense-wise Santo's team could have done better.
The 32 goals they have conceded is just one more than their Monday night's opponents who are eight places away and just three away from relegation.
The possible starting XI for the Wolves playing in a 3-5-2 formation:
Patricio (goal), Ryan Bennett, Willy Boly, Conor Coady (Defense); Matt Doherty, Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho,Jonathan Castro (midfield); Diogo Jota, Raul Jimenez (forwards).
Despite their low rankings on the EPL table, Rafa Benitez's Newcastle have been faring much better than they did a month ago. A potent mix of clinical finishing and some stoic defending helped the Magpies stage a sensational 2-1 win over title-holders Manchester City, but not before breezing pass Cardiff City with a 3-0 win at the St. James Park. They almost managed to hold Tottenham to a goalless draw at the Wembley last weekend but for an uncharacteristic error from custodian Martin Dubravka that allowed Son to score a very late winner.
Unlike his Wolves counterpart, Benitez has a few injury issues ahead of the Molineux stadium game with goalkeepers Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey out of action owing to injuries. However, midfielders Mo Diame and Ki Sung-Yueng and left back Paul Dummett have recovered and look all set to start on Monday.
The Magpies will be looking to their star Venezuelan forward Salomon Rondon to give them goals. Matt Ritchie, who's been doubling up as both left-back and left-winger will be someone the hosts will be worried of given his ability to deliver the ball into dangerous areas.
Newcastle's probable starting XI in a 5-4-1 formation:
Dubravka (goal); DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schar, Jamaal Lascelles, Florian Lejeune, Matt Ritchie; Ayoze Perez, Sean Longstaff, Isaac Hayden, Christian Atsu; Salomon Rondon;
Bookmakers are tipping the Wolves to walk away with three points from February 11's Molineux stadium game, although a win would not make any difference to their standings on the table.
Santo's team are still a distant nine points away from sixth-placed Arsenal and will need a lot of catching up with only a third of the 2018-19 season left.
