Wolves and Newcastle United are two sides with strong attacking potential. This game is expected to be a tight affair but Wolves can still pack a punch when they’re at their best. However, at the moment Newcastle United are the better team and should be able to come away with a win.
Willy Boly to start for Wolves
Wolves will hope to have Willy Boly back in their lineup for Sunday’s match against Newcastle United. The Belgian international has missed two matches since testing positive for COVID-19 in early April. Boly is expected to have a break over the summer to recuperate. However, he could be available for the match after returning to training. His presence in the lineup would provide Wolves with a strong defensive presence.
Willy Boly has not played in the Premier League this season, only featuring once in the EFL Cup defeat against Tottenham in September. Despite his lack of Premier League experience, the player has represented his country at the international level and was due to feature at the Africa Cup of Nations this summer. While his appearances have been limited, he is a popular choice amongst Wolves fans.
In the last match against Newcastle, Willy Boly’s late goal against Newcastle was crucial. With Isaac Hayden’s goal in the 56th minute, Wolves looked to be out of the game but Willy Boly climbed over Martin Dubravka and nodded home in time to make it 1-1. Newcastle players furiously appealed for a foul, but referee Graham Scott waved the appeals away.
Willy Burn to continue at left-back
Wolves will be hoping to continue their unbeaten start in the Championship with a win over Newcastle United on Saturday. Despite the good start to the season, Wolves have been a little sluggish up top and have struggled to get into the opposition box. The 31-year-old Mexican has a good record against Newcastle, with two goals and an assist in six appearances.
Newcastle United’s first-half goal was chalked off for offside after VAR ruled the striker was offside. The visitors had two great chances after the break but were unable to convert. However, after the break, Newcastle had a penalty awarded after Allan Saint-Maximin was brought down in the box.
Wolves are in danger of dropping out of the top six, so they must win the game to stay up. A win tonight will help them leapfrog both Manchester United and West Ham United in the table. Both sides have had contrasting starts to the season, with the former sitting in fifth place with 23 points, while Wolves are in eighth place with fifteen.
Willy Traore to start for Newcastle
Willy Traore is one of the most exciting young players in English football. The Guinea international has been linked with Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona. While he has been a key player at Newcastle, he has not been able to convince the Newcastle management that he is worthy of starting for the club.
Traore has a great reputation in France, but has yet to make his debut for Newcastle. He has been training with the first team for the past two years and has already scored four goals in a Newcastle shirt. He has made five appearances for the club and is a popular choice for fans.
Willy Boly scored the late equaliser in the English Premier League. Wolves drew 1-1 with Newcastle on Monday. Isaac Hayden’s header in the 56th minute looked to have sealed a win for Newcastle, but Willy Boly nodded in from the penalty spot to level the game. Rafa Benitez, meanwhile, was furious at the goal.
Willy Burn to start at left-back for Newcastle
Newcastle fans should not be too surprised to see the former Tottenham defender starting at left-back. Burn has been consistently good for the club over the last two seasons and is a very popular player. The club has tried to sign him on a permanent basis but he has failed to secure the move. However, the manager is trying to get rid of his defensive problems, so he is bringing in new faces.
The recent January transfer window has changed Newcastle’s style of play, despite the fact that they were still missing Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier. The duo are expected to start as the Magpies are short on options. In addition, Newcastle are missing Joe Willock and Miguel Almiron due to injuries. In case Willock can’t start, Bruno Guimaraes could replace him.
Luke Shaw’s career has been a mixed bag. The Scot spent 20 years with Newcastle, and he helped them win three league titles and an FA Cup final. He is also credited with inventing the offside trap, which forced the FA to change its rules. He could have made 600 appearances if he had his way.
