Newcastle United will clash heads with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they try to put an end to their winless run of results in the Premier League over the past month. The Magpies could only manage to grind out a 1-1 draw against Watford recently, so they will be eager to get back to winning ways in league football this weekend.

Steve Bruce will probably set his players up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to name Allan Saint-Maximin as his makeshift centre-forward in the injury absence of Callum Wilson. The Newcastle boss could be inclined to name an unchanged side for this game.

Defence

Karl Darlow will continue to feature in between the sticks for the Magpies after shipping in one goal versus the Hornets in his last league start. Ciaran Clark will resume his centre-half partnership with Jamaal Lascelles at the centre of the Newcastle backline as they look to restrict the opposition from scoring during the 90 minutes.

Javier Manquillo will try to produce a solid defensive showing at right-back while Matt Ritchie fills in on the other flank as the left-back. Bruce will ask both of them to maintain a solid defensive shape and also make a few energetic runs out on the wide areas.

Emil Krafth will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.

Midfield

Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden will assume the duties of the holding midfielders as they focus on getting a foothold in the game at the centre of the park. Joelinton will once again get the nod to function as the left-sided wide player while Miguel Almiron hopes to put his pace to good use down the right flank.

Joe Willock will probably get the freedom to operate in the number ten position and is likely to carry most of the creative workload for his team.

Jeff Hendrick and Ryan Fraser will be named on the Magpies bench but could come on to make an impact in the second half if required.

Attack

Allan Saint-Maximin is expected to serve as Newcastle’s primary centre-forward up top. He will be Bruce’s best hope for a goal in this game. Dwight Gayle will act as his back-up on the bench but could influence the game in the latter stages if needed.
