As expected, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will field an unchanged side at Wolves today, and it’s the same side that easily beat Blackburn 3-1 at home last Saturday.
This will be the 7th league game in a row this season that Alan Pardew has chosen an unchanged defense, winch currently has the best record in the football league of all 92 clubs.
That means Best and Ba will again have an opportunity to score those goals for Newcastle and Tiote and Cabaye remain as top performers in Newcastle’s central midfield.
The subs bench is extremely strong – Rob Elliot, Davide Santon, Danny Guthrie, Sylvain Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi, Hatem Ben Arfa, Peter Lovenkrands
For Wolves, Steven Fletcher is back in the starting line-up with Dave Edwards dropping to the bench.
Wolves (4-4-2): Hennessey, Stearman, Berra, Johnson, Ward, Jarvis, Henry, O’Hara, Hunt, Fletcher, Doyle.
Subs: De Vries, Doherty, Zubar, Guedioura, Hammill, Edwards, Vokes.
Newcastle United (4-4-2): Krul; Simpson, Taylor (S), Coloccini (c), Taylor (R); Obertan, Cabaye, Tiote, Gutierrez; Best, Ba
Subs: Elliot, Santon, Guthrie, Marveaux, Ameobi (Sa), Ben Arfa, Lovenkrands
