WOL vs NEW Dream11 Prediction: The Magpies take on the Wolves at the Molineux in the 6th round of the English Premier League. The Wolves faithful must have finally heaved a sigh of relief as their 3-game losing streak ended and they won their last two fixtures against newly promoted Fulham and Leeds United. They lost to Stoke City, resulting in them crashing out of the Carabao Cup which they followed with a 3-1 loss to Manchester City and a shock 4-0 loss to West Ham United. But they’ve scraped two wins on the bounce and that’s what they will be happy with at the moment. As for Newcastle, they have had a patchy start to the season with two wins, two losses and a draw. Their last game was a 4-1 loss at home to Manchester United, which came after a 4-game unbeaten run, which included a 7-0 win against Morecambe and a 1-1 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur. Steve Bruce’s summer signings have been great for the club but will have to do better if they are aiming for a finish in the top-half of the table. WOL vs NEW Prediction details follow next.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Jonny Castro Otto is the only absentee for Wolves.
Doubtful: Nuno Espirito Santo has no doubtful players.
Expected changes: New signing, Fernando Marcal will continue to start in place of the injured Jonny. Adama Traore found himself on the bench against Leeds United but will be looking to reclaim his place in the lineup. Should he return to the team, he will replace Daniel Podence. Nuno is unlikely to change a winning team and should name almost the same lineup.
WOL Playing 11 (probable):
Rui Patricio (GK)
Newcastle United Team News
Injury Report, Unavailability: Dwight Gayle is a long-term injury and remains unavailable. Martin Dubravka and Matt Ritchie are also expected to miss out with injuries.
Doubtful: Steve Bruce does not have any doubtful players.
Expected changes: Steve Bruce will have a dilemma as he has to choose three out of Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron, Ryan Fraser and Jeff Hendrick to play behind Callum Wilson with Joelinton likely to return to the bench.
NEW Playing 11 (probable):
Karl Darlow (GK)
WOL vs NEW Today Match Prediction follows in next section
Wolves enter this game as favourites with odds of 1.75 whereas the away team are at 5.25. Wolves have scored 0.67 goals in their last three games whereas Steve Bruce’s men have averaged 1.67 which will work in their favour but Nuno Espirito Santo will be very pleased with their last two results and will do everything possible to keep that going. A loss will be very poor for team morale whereas a win can really get them going. They will look to set-up in a 3-4-3 with Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker pulling the strings from the midfield. Newcastle will look to stop that by overcrowding the midfield, led by workhorse, Jonjo Shelvey who has plenty of experience in the Premier League. The last two games between the two sides have ended in a draw but Wolves have not drawn a game in their last 10 games so it will be a difficult one to predict. Check out WOL vs EVE Dream11 Prediction Captain options in next section.
Raul Jimenez – Jimenez ensured that Wolves got all three points against Leeds as his goal was the difference between the two sides. Jimenez has been one of the best strikers in the league for a while now, scoring 47 times and providing 18 assists for the Wolves. He has begun this season well with 3 goals in 5 Premier League games and will cause problems to Lascelles and Fernandez.
Callum Wilson – Wilson has been a very shrewd signing for the Magpies and is one that has provided dividends. He already has 4 goals and 1 assist in 5 Premier League games and is turning out to be quite an asset for Newcastle. Having scored 67 goals and provided 30 assists for his previous club, Bournemouth, Wilson will look to emulate or better those numbers.
Pedro Neto – The Portuguese youngster has started this season well with a goal and an assist and also scored the winning goal against Fulham. He also has a goal contribution every 165 minutes in the Premier League which is impressive for a 20-year-old.
X-factors (differential picks)
Jeff Hendrick – Another new signing, Jeff Hendrick, had a great start to the season but is yet to find the mark since his goal and assist on the opening day of the season. But throughout his career, Hendrick has a very good goal contributions per minute ratio of one every 104 minutes and it seems like just a matter of time before he hits top form.
Adama Traore – The Spanish speedster is a defender’s nightmare owing to his speed, strength, and dribbling abilities. His only concern is his lack of goal contributions, but he is still young and has time to change that. With only 7 goals and 15 assists for Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo will be expecting more from him.
Allan Saint-Maximin – Last but far from the least, is Allan Saint-Maximin. He is very similar to Adama Traore in terms of gameplay and is quite a dominant force in the final third with some great runs owing to his dribbling prowess. But he has started the season better than Adama by finding the net once and grabbing an assist as well.
