The 10th round of the new Premier League season is set to conclude with an eagerly anticipated football match pitting Wolverhampton against Newcastle United.

Wolverhampton, also known as the Wolves, has recently displayed significant improvement in their performance. They achieved victories against both Manchester City and Bournemouth, and managed to secure draws with Aston Villa.

These successes should boost their confidence as they prepare to host Newcastle. Notably, Gary O’Neil is expected to have a full squad at his disposal for the upcoming game.

On the other side, Newcastle United, commonly referred to as the Magpies, is coming off a thrilling 4-0 win against Crystal Palace. However, considering Wolverhampton’s impressive form, it seems there is considerable value in placing a bet on a draw outcome.

The visiting team will still be without key players Joseph Willock and Harvey Barnes due to injuries, but Alex Murphy is likely to recover in time to face the Wolves. All signs point to a shared result at Molineux Stadium.

Team News:

Wolves achieved victory at the Vitality Stadium, even without the services of two regular players, Mario Lemina and Nelson Semedo, who were suspended. Both of them are set to rejoin the squad on Saturday, creating a pleasant selection dilemma for O’Neil.

Semedo is expected to regain his place in the starting XI, possibly replacing Matt Doherty, while Lemina might take over from Joao Gomes. Gomes, who only managed to stay on the field for 45 minutes during their last weekend’s win over Bournemouth, was substituted for tactical reasons during the halftime break.

Currently, only Hugo Bueno (hamstring) and Jean-Ricner Bellegarde (muscle) are in the Molineux treatment room. Despite his effective contributions as a substitute down south, Kalajdzic is likely to continue in his super-sub role, with Cunha joining Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-chan in the attacking trio.

Meanwhile, Newcastle faced additional setbacks on Tuesday as Isak was forced to leave the field within the first 15 minutes due to a groin injury, and substitute Jacob Murphy had to be substituted just five minutes after coming on, with a suspected shoulder dislocation.

Neither of these players is expected to be part of the matchday squad at Molineux. In addition to this, Harvey Barnes (foot) and Sven Botman (knee) will also be unavailable. However, Joe Willock was able to make a 20-minute appearance against Dortmund after his recent fitness issues.

As Isak returns to the treatment room, a recall for Callum Wilson is in the works. Additionally, Sandro Tonali’s 10-month ban for illegal betting has been confirmed, and the Italian international will begin his prolonged absence from the sport this weekend.
