For the first time in his managerial career, Eddie Howe avoided defeat against Pep Guardiola on Sunday after his Newcastle went toe-to-toe with the champions and came out with a 3-3 draw. The Geordies were fantastic after going behind in the 5th minute to Ilkay Gundogan’s strike, with Allan Saint-Maximin causing Kyle Walker all sorts of problems down the right hand side and providing two assists in a Premier League game for just the third time in his career.
Kieran Trippier scored his third direct free-kick out of four attempts in the Premier League since January, before two goals in Erling Haaland and Bernardo Silva denied the home side a famous win.
Wolves looked bright in the first half against Tottenham, but couldn’t make the most of their chances before eventually losing the game 1-0 thanks a Harry Kane header. Bruno Lage started seven Portuguese players at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, with Wolves’ goalkeeper, entire midfield and attack all coming from Portugal, a joint record for the number of overseas players from the same nation in a Premier League starting XI.
Their defeat against Antonio Conte’s men means Wolves are now without a win in each of their last 10 Premier League games (D3 L7) and have failed to win any of their first three games of a season in both 2021/22 and 2022/23 under Bruno Lage.

Wolves vs Newcastle match stats
Newcastle have scored in all 14 of their Premier League games against Wolves, but have only kept one clean sheet against Sunday’s opponents in that time. Five of the last seven meetings between these two sides have finished as a draw, with the score finishing 1-1 in five consecutive league games between February 2019 and February 2021.
On the back of his superb free-kick against champions Man City last weekend, Kieran Trippier came on to rescue Newcastle yet again against Tranmere in the Carabao Cup, with a superb assist for Chris Wood’s winning goal. The Bury Beckham was subbed on in the 39th minute after replacing the injured Emil Krafth, and put on a fantastic display.
The full-back found a teammate with four of his seven crosses, created six chances (including four big chances) and provided an assist, showing just how important his creativity is to this Newcastle side.
