Wolverhampton Wanderers host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Both navigated their way through EFL Cup ties against lower-league opposition in midweek by the same 2-1 scoreline. While Wolves' triumph against Championship side Preston was their first win of the season, Newcastle extended their unbeaten run to six matches across all competitions with a triumph over fourth-tier Tranmere Rovers.

Wolves team news
Bruno Lage gleefully granted Raul Jimenez his first start of the season in midweek after injury hampered his early involvement. The 46-year-old admitted: "We have missed him in the first three games," after watching Jimenez score in the win over Preston.
With the youngster Chiquinho the only first team absentee, Lage may restore his number nine to the starting XI this weekend.
Wolves predicted lineup vs Newcastle
Wolves Starting 11: Sa; Jonny, Collins, Kilman, Ait Nouri; Nunes, Neves, Moutinho; Podence, Jimenez, Guedes.
Bench: Sarkic, Hwang, Boly, Semedo, Gomes, Dendoncker, Traore, Cundle, Bueno.
Newcastle team news
The imminent arrival of Newcastle's record signing Alexander Isak may be required sooner rather than later. Callum Wilson limped off with a hamstring concern during Newcastle's 3-3 draw with Manchester City last Sunday. Eddie Howe was quick to quell any fretting over the injury-prone striker before this latest niggle is thoroughly assessed.
Dan Burn was also forced off against the reigning champions as Howe later confirmed that the defender did suffer a concussion when his own teammate cleared the ball into his face.
Ryan Fraser flagged a problem with his groin in the warmup to Sunday's match and didn't make the midweek trip to Prenton Park. Jonjo Shelvey isn't expected to return from surgery on his thigh until after Christmas.
Without any contact from an opposition player, fullback Emil Krafth picked up a left knee injury to put a dampener on Wednesday's cup win.
Newcastle predicted lineup vs Wolves
Newcastle Starting 11: Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Targett; Willock, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Wood, Saint-Maximin.
Bench: Dubravka, Darlow, Lascelles, Ritchie, Murphy, Anderson, Longstaff, Fernandez, Manquillo.
Wolves vs Newcastle score prediction
Goals, as ever, have proven tough to come by for Wolves. Only the three relegated sides scored fewer than Lage's team last season. The West Midlands outfit have only found the net once this term. While they aren't shy in taking aim, Wolves have consistently struggled to carve open clear shooting chances, regularly blasting speculative efforts from range.
Newcastle demonstrated their goal threat against last season's tightest defence just last weekend. It may not be as exciting as that thriller but the Magpies could earn an even better result this Sunday.
Prediction: Wolves 0-1 Newcastle
