Premier League Matchday 26 of 38 Ends With The Wolves And NewcastlePublished February 11, 2019 by Sol FH
Miguel Almiron could get his first start tonight as Newcastle visit Wolverhampton tonight at 20:00 GMT.
The Wolves are hungry for a big win tonight to creep ever-closer to Chelsea in sixth place after the Blues suffered an embarrassing loss to City 6-0 last night. Wolverhampton is having the best season they've ever had and currently reside in the seventh spot on the table with 38-points. A win tonight would bring them to 41, leaving only nine between them and Chelsea / Arsenal, going into Matchday 27. The only thing standing in their way is Newcastle, who may or may not start their lucrative new acquisition, Miguel Almiron.
Rafa Benitez has said that he is not in any rush to start Newcastle's new record signing, but, Almiron, who comes to the Premier League from Atlanta United in the MLS, and a Paraguayan national. Newcastle spent €21 million to bring him over, and Benitez thinks that he will make an instant impact for the Magpies and bring them out of the bottom of the league. One of the reasons for Benitez to wait with his new star is the major adjustment that most players go through when entering a new league, "To come to another league is quite difficult. They need time to adapt," he related.
There is no question about it though; Wolves are the favorites to win tonight. But, after Newcastle shocked City last week with a 2-1 win, anything can happen in the Premier League.
