Player to watch – Alexander Isak

Newcastle's 24-year-old striker played just over an hour of Newcastle's FA Cup win over Blackburn Rovers in midweek and looks set to lead the line against Wolves on Saturday.

Newcastle Swedish striker is back from injury

Isak top scores in the league for Newcastle this season with 10 goals, only two of which have arrived in the form of a penalty. It's really important for Eddie Howe's plans that Isak gets back to full fitness and avoids any further injuries as he is Newcastle's best source of goals and the club really needs him to start banging in the goals again so that they can claim the table and challenge for the European places.
