Newcastle face an uncertain future following Rafa Benitez’s departure with Sheffield Wednesday’s Steve Bruce being the current favorite to take over the vacant post. But things don’t look to good for the Northern club with a proposed takeover not looking likely and Mike Ashley unwilling to spend money.
Further the only 2 players to have scored more than 10 goals last season, Ayoze Perez and Rondon both have left the club leaving defender Schar as the highest scoring player still left in the club.
Wolves, on the other hand, seem to be heading in the other direction as a great 1st season in the Premier League saw them finish 7th and qualify for the Europa League qualifying stages. They will look to build on that solid season and have already signed both Jimenez and Dendoncker on permanent deals.
Newcastle travel to China without a manager, but the players will hope to get off to a positive start and even though the Premier League Asia Trophy might not be a competitive trophy, it never hurts to win competitions.
Wolves travel with a light squad as many of their players are on extended vacations due to international commitments. Thus many youngsters could get a chance to impress Nuno and try getting more first-team minutes.
Considering the condition of both squads and the fact that both teams will be rusty after their summer breaks, we predict Newcastle to nick a low scoring game 1-0.
