Wolves v Newcastle (20:00 GMT)

Here's a stat for you: Wolves have been no lower than 12th since 25 August.

For a newly promoted team that is pretty phenomenal. A win later would move the seventh-place side to within nine points of sixth-place Chelsea.

Former Porto keeper Nuno Espirito Santo has been well backed in the transfer market with midfielders Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho, keeper Rui Patricio, winger Diogo Jota, defender Willy Boly and loan signing striker Raul Jimenez proving to be big successes since Nuno took over in 2017.

Meanwhile, long-time Wolves right-back Matt Doherty has been an extra bow in Nuno's attacking arrow with six goals and five assists.

Ironically, none of those signings have cost as much as Newcastle's new £20m record signing Miguel Almiron, who is likely to make his debut in the Magpies front line.

When the teams last met today's visitors battled for more than 30 minutes with 10 men and were undone by a 95th-minute winner.

Revenge is in the air at Molineux.

Wolves pair Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre have recovered from the problems that caused them to miss the FA Cup replay win over Shrewsbury.

Jota has been nursing a minor injury, while Vinagre was laid low by a virus.

New signing Miguel Almiron is among six additional players available to Newcastle since their defeat at Spurs.

Paul Dummett, Mohamed Diame, Ki Sung-yueng and Karl Darlow are back from injury, while Yoshinori Muto has returned from the Asian Cup.

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has resisted the urge to makes any changes to his starting XI and keeps faith with the side that won 3-1 at Everton in their last Premier League outing.

Wolves: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jonny, Jota, Jimenez

Subs: Ruddy, Cavaleiro, Costa, Gibbs-White, Saiss, Vinagre, Traore

The big news as far as Newcastle are concerned is that record signing Miguel Almiron only makes the bench. Manager Rafael Benitez retains the starting XI that narrowly lost to Tottenham in their last Premier League game.

Newcastle: Dubravka, Schar, Lascelles, Lejeune, Yedlin, Ritchie, Hayden, Atsu, Longstaff, Perez, Rondon

Subs: Woodman, Diame, Kenedy, Fernandez, Manquillo, Joselu, Almiron

Will Wolves be able to counter attack? Could be pretty 0-0ish. Have Newcastle played Almiron yet?

He'll probably the first defender they replace if they want to stay in the top half of the PL and push for Europe but he's been hard to drop. He's been solid and the fans seem to have taken to him.

Will Almiron come on (._. )

The Chronicle reported that he's fit to play a full match but likely to be eased into Rafa's system. If the game's safe for either team he might not even play, but if a goal would change things for Newcastle you should see him.

should I go down the corner shop and get some beer even though I am trying not to drink as much and have made it this far today without drinking?

Lascelles has been rubbish all season
I think Newcastle are only playing 3 CBs because Rafa is doesn't want to drop him and doesn't trust him in a back 4.

I like how defenders don't even bother trying to get tight to rondon because they know he'll just shrug them off

Leave this field blank:
