Mark Lawrenson slates 'pallid' Newcastle United & makes Wolves score prediction
Newcastle United are back in action this weekend, when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James' Park on Saturday evening.
In his weekly predictions column for BBC Sport, pundit and broadcaster Mark Lawrenson tipped the visitors to pick up a 2-0 away against Steve Bruce's side.
Justifying his prediction, the ex-Liverpool defender claimed: "Newcastle are sinking like a stone. They have the pallid look of relegation about them, and it's hard to know where their next win is coming from.
"In contrast, Wolves are looking like the team they were last season, and have won their past two games. I think they will make it three in a row at St James' Park."
Meanwhile, Lawro's opponent for the week, London Grammar member Dot Major, backed Nuno Espirito Santo's side to earn a narrow 1-0 victory.
When the two sides last met, back in October, a late Jacob Murphy goal snatched a late point for the Magpies at Molineux.
Newcastle have failed to beat the West Midlands side in their last five meetings, and have produced 1-1 scorelines in their last three encounters.
Should the Magpies lose and Fulham beat Crystal Palace on Sunday, Bruce's side will finish the weekend in the dreaded relegation zone.
Here are all of Lawro's predictions in full:
Manchester City 2-0 West Ham United
West Bromwich 1-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
Leeds United 2-0 Aston Villa
Newcastle United 0-2 Wolves
Crystal Palace 2-1 Fulham
Leicester 2-1 Arsenal
Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Burnley
Chelsea 1-1 Man Utd
Sheffield United 0-2 Liverpool
Everton 2-0 Southampton
