Newcastle United are back in action on Sunday when they welcome Wolves to St James’ Park.
The Magpies have endured a slide of late, struggling for form in the lead up to - and indeed since - the Carabao Cup final. Eddie Howe’s men are winless in five across all competitions, but they are still in a strong position in the Premier League, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with two games in hand.
A resurgent Wolves stand in the way of Howe’s men this weekend, and the Midlands side still have business to take care of as they look to avoid relegation.
Ahead of the game, we have rounded up all you need to know to tune in on television.

What Eddie Howe has said
Speaking about Newcastle’s recent dip in form, Howe has said ahead of this one: “Through every season there are difficult moments and there are patches where you don’t win the games maybe you should. That’s the time, I believe, you have to be really strong mentally and know it will change.”
What Julen Lopetegui has said
Wolves boss Lopetegui said ahead of his side’s trip to St James’ Park: “I think we’re going to play against one of the strongest teams in the Premier League. They have a fantastic squad, very good players and a very good coach. They play with one very clear style, rhythm with and without the ball.
“They are ready to fight for the Champions League, but in the same way we are going to go there with ambition and thinking we are able to compete with them and beat them. This is our aim, for sure. I think we are going to play a very hard match, but in the same way a very exciting match for us.”
