Newcastle is on a mission to recover from their midweek Champions League home loss to Borussia Dortmund as they head to Molineux to face Wolves on Sunday.

On the other side, Newcastle’s Alexander Isak had to leave the field within the first 15 minutes of the match against Dortmund. His current fitness level is uncertain, casting doubt on his availability for this game.

Jacob Murphy, Harvey Barnes, and Sven Botman are still dealing with various injuries for Newcastle. Additionally, Sandro Tonali will be absent from the field for an extended period as he serves a 10-month suspension related to illegal betting activities.

The setback against Dortmund proved costly for Eddie Howe’s squad, as striker Alexander Isak and Jacob Murphy were added to an already lengthy injury list, which includes Sven Botman and Harvey Barnes.

To further complicate matters for the Magpies, they will be without Sandro Tonali until NEXT season due to a ten-month betting ban.

With these circumstances in mind, this matchup appears to be an opportune moment for Wolves to face Newcastle.

Gary O’Neil has consistently demonstrated his tactical prowess throughout his burgeoning managerial career, showcasing his ability to devise strategies that neutralize the opposition’s strengths.
