It hardly matters who is home or away, high or low on the table, Wolves vs Newcastle has led to a distinct result more often than not in recent Premier League history (start time 10am ET Saturday online via Peacock Premium).
So perhaps Newcastle can pick up a result despite Wolves’ status as the better team by almost every early-season metric.
Newcastle and Wolves have drawn 1-1 in their last five Premier League meetings, but Raul Jimenez has put his name back onto the score sheet and will be planning for more at the Molineux on Saturday morning.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Wolves vs Newcastle.

Newcastle’s produced its fair share of surprises but Wolves have looked better and better en route to the win column. Without Shelvey and Wilson, the Magpies are also more shorthanded than Neto and Jonny-less Wolves. Adama Traore, Miguel Almiron, Jimenez, and Allan Saint-Maximin will still entertain. Oh, heck, let’s do it: Wolves 1-1 Newcastle.
