The Newcastle vs Wolves live stream is an important fixture for both sides, but for very different reasons. Wolves are looking to move up the table, as European qualification is still within reach, whereas Newcastle are in danger of sliding back towards the relegation zone if they don’t start picking up points soon.

Less than a month ago the feeling in the Newcastle camp was one of jubilation. The side was enjoying a nine-game unbeaten streak and any fears of relegation seemed a distant memory. How quickly the tables can turn. After three defeats in a row, including a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Spurs, a sense of nervousness is spreading across the Toon Army.  

With the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Leicester still to play in their final eight games, Newcastle need to start picking up points soon or their final matchday showdown with Burnley could be a relegation decider. The North-Eastern club may sit seven points from the drop zone currently, but that margin will shrink quickly unless they find a way to win again. 

The chief concern for head coach Eddie Howe is surely the side’s inability to score. Newcastle haven't netted from open play for more than five hours of football, and they've only scored a single goal in their last three matches (while conceding seven). The absence of first-choice striker Callum Wilson is being keenly felt and the on-field leadership of Kieran Trippier is also a miss — neither is expected to play again for several weeks yet. 

Meanwhile, Wolves also desperately need points but for a very different reason. The club is fighting to secure qualification for next season's Europa League competition. The midlands side come into this one off the back of a solid 2-1 win over Aston Villa, which was much-needed in the wake of a second-half collapse against Leeds. 

The reverse fixture finished 2-1 to Wolves, but that scoreline really doesn’t tell the story of the match. Wolves dominated Newcastle, carving them open to score two very well worked goals, whereas Newcastle’s strike was arguable a fluke. Since that day in October, Newcastle have undergone a massive transformation with a new manager, new wealthy (and very controversial) owners and £92m worth of new players. 

If Wolves manager Bruno Lage is feeling any nerves of his own about facing this new-look Newcastle United, he can take confidence from the fact his side are unbeaten against the Magpies since the sides met in the Championship back in February 2017. 

We’re entering the business end of the season, and both these teams desperately want to get points on the board. Expect a fiercely contested match, although don’t expect many goals from the home side. 

Here's how they line up: 

Newcastle: Dubravka, Schar, Joelinton, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Targett, Krafth, Wood, Fraser, Burn, Guimaraes.

Wolves: Sa, Marcal, Trincao, Boly, Coady, Silva, Jonny, Kilman, Hwang, Moutinho, Cundle.
