JUST IN : Paul Merson predicts the score for Wolves vs Newcastle on Saturday

Following their loss in the Champions League on Wednesday, Newcastle United is set to return to Premier League action this weekend.

Eddie Howe will lead his Newcastle team to Molineux for a clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers, who currently sit 12th in the Premier League. Gary O’Neil’s squad trails the Magpies by five points and anticipates a challenging match on Saturday evening.

However, Newcastle is grappling with several injuries as they approach this fixture. Elliot Anderson is sidelined, and Alexander Isak and Jacob Murphy sustained injuries during their match against Borussia Dortmund. Additionally, Sandro Tonali has been banned from playing until August next year due to betting.

Despite the depletion of their squad, the traveling Toon Army is eager to witness their team secure three points, a sentiment shared by former Arsenal forward Paul Merson. In his recent Sportskeeda column, Merson has predicted the outcomes of all Premier League matches this weekend, and he believes that Newcastle will triumph over Wolves, forecasting a 2-1 victory at Molineux.

Paul Merson predicts the score for Wolves vs Newcastle on Saturday

Merson acknowledges Wolves as a decent team with good results this season but is still favoring Newcastle for the win, despite their midweek defeat to Borussia Dortmund. He expressed surprise at the outcome of that match, initially expecting Newcastle to dominate the Bundesliga side.

Merson envisions a narrow victory for Newcastle, which would be a commendable response following their Champions League engagements. In their post-Champions League games, Newcastle has played away from home, with an impressive 8-0 victory against Sheffield United and a 2-2 draw with West Ham. The Wolves pose another intriguing challenge, and the hope is that there won’t be any lingering effects from their European defeat.

Newcastle would welcome any type of victory at this point, with the primary concern being to avoid further injuries. The aspiration is that Merson’s prediction holds true, unlike his expectations for Newcastle in their Wednesday match, where they fell short to Borussia Dortmund.
