Our tipster thinks that there could be goals - at both ends - when Rafael Benitez's charges welcome Nuno Espirito Santo's side to St James' Park

Sunday's Premier League action comes from St James' Park as Newcastle United play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Both sides will come into this clash in good spirits, for Newcastle claimed a creditable point at Goodison Park on Wednesday night while Wolves came back from a goal down to stun Chelsea at Molineux.

Latest odds

Newcastle won three successive Premier League matches last month and SportPesa go 19/10 (2.90) that Benitez's men find a return to winning ways this weekend.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side are chalked up as a 33/20 (2.65) chance to claim victory on Tyneside, while SportPesa go 21/10 (3.10) that the two teams settle for a share of the spoils.

Team news

Matt Ritchie is back for the Magpies after serving a one-match ban but Paul Dummett is doubtful, while Florian Lejeune is out.

Jonny Otto remains sidelined for Wolves, who could welcome back Ruben Neves after the Portuguese midfielder missed Wednesday's match against Chelsea through suspension.

Goals at a premium?

Wolves' 2-1 defeat at Cardiff last weekend was the first match that Santo's side have contested on their travels this season that has featured more than two goals.

Each of Wolves' previous seven away matches had seen fewer than three goals and SportPesa offer 10/17 (1.59) that there are no more than two goals on Tyneside.

The same firm offer 20/27 (1.74) that either side fails to find the net - that play would have landed in five of Wolves' eight matches away from home this season, as well as in four of Newcastle's last five fixtures at St James' Park.

Prediction

However, both sides will be in buoyant mood after encouraging results and performances in midweek.

Indeed, the hosts have now lost just one of their last six games, while Wolves have found the net in four of their last five fixtures.

This tie, then, could be more entertaining than many observers are anticipating and the even money (2.0) quote for both teams to score could provide punters with a path to profit on Sunday afternoon.
