Newcastle United go in search of a much-needed three points when they make the trip to in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers for Premier League action on Monday evening.

Due to results over the weekend, the Magpies start the clash in 17th position and only above the relegation zone due to their better goal difference than 18th-placed Southampton.

Newcastle lost their last league match – a 1-0 defeat at Tottenham – and Rafael Benitez‘s men have failed to pick up a league win on the road from their last four attempts.

A win for the North-East outfit could take them up to 13th place and fans will be hoping to see record signing Miguel Almiron, who arrived from Atlanta United on deadline-day for around £20million, make his debut.

The 25-year-old scored 22 MLS goals from 68 league appearances during his time with Atlanta and he can be found at 5/1 to score anytime during the contest at Molineux.

Benitez was coy when asked about his team selection in a press conference on Friday although Paul Dummett, Mohamed Diame, Ki Sung-yueng and Joselu are all available after recovering from injury.

A debut for Almiron would likely mean a change in formation, with Benitez changing from a 3-4-2-1 to a 4-2-3-1, with the new arrival slotting in behind lone striker Salomon Rondon.

Wolves have won four of their last five matches in all competitions and they will be looking to do the double over Newcastle, having won the reverse fixture at St James’ Park 2-1 back in December.

Nuno Espirito Santo‘s men have tasted success in their last four home games – beating Liverpool, Leicester, West Ham United and Shrewsbury Town – and they have averaged three goals a game during that run.

Last season’s Championship winners are the 4/6 favourites to add another three points to their tally, whilst it is 6/5 for there to be over 2.5 goals in the match.

Mexican forward Raul Jimenez scored a brace in the 3-0 win over the Hammers and he can be found at 7/2 to open the scoring in Monday’s spectacle.
