Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle v Wolves – Not great reading
The Premier League form table ahead of Newcastle United taking on Wolves.
It seems an awful lot longer than three months ago when Newcastle lined up against Wolves in the Premier League Asia Trophy.
NUFC were hammered 4-0 in that pre-season tournament in the week that Steve Bruce was appointed.
After the defeat at Chelsea, Newcastle are 18th in this Premier League form table.
This six game run having one win, two draws and three defeats.
Indeed, the Premier League form table exactly copies the full PL table at the bottom, with only Watford and Norwich worse off than Newcastle.
As for Wolves, they stand eleventh in the Premier League form table, with two wins, two draws and two defeats.
However, that only tells part of the story.
Possibly affected by the number of Europa League qualifying games they had to play, Wolves made a terrible start to the season, losing two and drawing three of their first five Premier League games.
However, they have then won two and drawn two, including that victory at Man City in their last away game.
Indeed in all competitions, Wolves are unbeaten in six, winning four and drawing two.
Steve Bruce will be hoping that the away Europa League game in Bratislava will negatively affect Wolves, as they now look like a team back on the up, whilst Newcastle continue their struggle for both points and goals.
A massive game on Sunday for Newcastle, as the other teams in the bottom five all have home games where they look as though they could pick up points.
Here is the Premier League form table which covers the past six matches for all teams:
Wolves’ last six results with latest one listed first:
Wolves 1 Southampton 1
Man City 0 Wolves 2
Wolves 2 Watford 0
Crystal Palace 1 Wolves 1
