Newcastle will be looking for a huge three points in their battle against relegation when they travel to Molineux on Monday night.
Wins for Cardiff and Burnley over the weekend didn’t help the Magpies’ cause with Rafa Benitez’s side now only outside the bottom three on goal difference.
United will be buoyed by their last three league performances, wins against Cardiff and Manchester City followed by a narrow defeat at Wembley last weekend.
Their opponents meanwhile are in scintillating form, winning their last three league games and scoring at least three in each one.
There was late heartbreak for Newcastle in the reverse fixture at St James’ Park when Matt Doherty scored an injury-time winner following DeAndre Yedlin’s earlier dismissal.
All eyes will be on club-record signing Miguel Almiron when the teams are released to see if the Paraguayan will make his debut.
Benitez is able to welcome back some players from injury for this clash with Paul Dummett, Ki Sung-yueng and Mohamed Diame all back fit.
Here is how we predict Newcastle to line up against Wolves.
GK - Martin Dubravka
Expected to keep his place despite his mistake that cost his side last weekend.
RWB - DeAndre Yedlin
The American defender is likely to stay in the team as the right wing-back.
CB - Fabian Schar
Schar has excelled recently and is now one of the first names on the team-sheet.
CB - Jamaal Lascelles
Lascelles will captain the side at Molineux as normal.
CB - Florian Lejeune
Likely to play on the left of the back three with the current defensive unit having a strong run of games.
LWB - Matt Ritchie
Now has competition for this position with the recent signing of Barreca and return of Dummett but Ritchie has impressed in this new left wing-back role.
CM - Isaac Hayden
Could well be replaced by the returning Ki Sung-yueng or Mohamed Diame but has given little reason for Benitez to do so.
CM - Sean Longstaff
Will feel hard done by if he doesn’t keep his place after grabbing his opportunity with both hands.
CM - Miguel Almiron
Could well be the only change the playmaker likely to take the place of Christian Atsu. Newcastle fans will be hoping to see him in action sooner rather than later.
CAM - Ayoze Perez
His position is also under threat from Almiron but I believe he has done more than Atsu to warrant a starting place.
ST - Salomon Rondon
An easy decision for Benitez with Rondon by far the best striker at the club.
