Goals from Alexander Isak, Anthony Gordon and Tino Livramento helped Newcastle overcome Wolves and register their first home win in the Premier League since mid-December.  Sweden international Isak nodded in at the end of a sweeping counter-attack involving Gordon and Bruno Guimaraes, whose left-footed shot deflected off Craig Dawson and into the striker's path.  Eddie Howe's team doubled their advantage when Jose Sa and Max Kilman failed to deal with Jacob Murphy's low cross and Gordon pounced on the loose ball to fire home.  Wolves had the lion's share of possession at St James' Park but failed to test Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka until midway through the second half, when half-time substitute Nathan Fraser's low shot from the edge of the box was palmed clear.  Dubravka produced a superb stop to deny Pablo Sarabia moments later, but Livramento struck his first Newcastle goal in stoppage time to put the seal on the Magpies' first home victory since their 3-0 win over Fulham on 16 December.  The win lifted Newcastle up to eighth in the table, while Wolves dropped to 10th.

Mario's goal https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/68418190


Mario Lemina scored the only goal of the game as Wolves beat Brighton to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals where they will host Championship side Coventry City.  Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele spilled a Jean-Ricner Bellegarde cross and Lemina slid in at the back post to finish at the second attempt after just two minutes.  Matt Doherty headed wide at the near post from Tommy Doyle's cross moments later as the home side began the game in the ascendency.  Danny Welbeck had a header off target in the closing stages but Brighton were unable to break the deadlock as they exited the competition.

Wolves reached the FA Cup quarter-finals for the third time this century, previously doing so in 2002-03 and 2018-19, but it came at a cost.  

Hwang Hee-chan went down injured after kicking the ball in the 54th minute, holding his hamstring and looking inconsolable which could prove to be a damaging injury for Gary O'Neil's side.

Lemina, who was tackled down the back of his Achilles by Pascal Gross just before half-time, went off a minute later seemingly still struggling from the effects of that challenge.

"Highlights" https://www.skysports.com/football/wolverhampton-wanderers-vs-sheffield-united/report/482850

Pablo Sarabia's header was one of two Wolves efforts on target - his first-half header gave Wolves a hard-fought Premier League win over bottom club Sheffield United at Molineux.

The Spain winger was left totally unmarked as he registered his third goal of the campaign for the hosts, flicking Rayan Ait-Nouri's left-wing delivery into the top right corner.  The result lifts Gary O'Neil's side up to eighth in the table and boosts their hopes of appearing in Europe next season.  It was far from a vintage display from Wolves, with Sarabia's header their only effort on target until a stoppage-time shot from Joao Gomes, in a contest that saw their determined opponents sit deep and attempt to counter with pace on the break.  And the manner of the Blades' performance, although not the outcome, will have pleased boss Chris Wilder, who saw his side carve out several good opportunities.

, Sarabia's clinical header ensured it is the quickest Wolves have reached 40 goals in a top-flight campaign since 1971-72.   However, O'Neil will be aware that his side will have to improve if they are to advance when they host Brighton in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday (19:45 GMT).

Wolves manager Gary O'Neil praised his side's "almost perfect" performance as Joao Gomes' double sank Tottenham - nudging Spurs out of the Premier League's top four.  The visitors went ahead just before half-time when Gomes was left unmarked eight yards out and rose well to powerfully head home Pablo Sarabia's right-wing corner.  But Tottenham made it 1-1 after only 34 seconds of the second half. Wolves failed to clear a Spurs throw-in and Dejan Kulusevski ran past Craig Dawson and prodded the ball through Jose Sa's legs.  Tottenham had fought back after conceding the first goal to beat Brentford and Brighton in their past two home games and Kulusevski had two chances to put the hosts in front this time.  However, Sa made an excellent save low down to his left and Nelson Semedo blocked a goalbound effort to keep it level. Those squandered chances proved significant as Wolves sprang a quick counter-attack with Pedro Neto pulling the ball back for Gomes to side-foot home what proved to be the winning goal.

The hosts pushed for a late leveller, but Micky van de Ven and Ben Davies missed chances late on as the visitors held on for the victory.

Ivan Toney scored his third goal in four Premier League games as Brentford clinched a deserved victory over misfiring Wolves at Molineux.  Christian Norgaard put the Bees ahead just after the half hour with a close-range header from a corner.   Craig Dawson thought he had equalised with a glancing header only for the Video Assistant Referee to determine he was in an offside position.  

Toney secured the three points 13 minutes before the final whistle with a crisp finish from Vitaly Janelt's low cross.   Brentford's victory - their first away win since 28 October - has given Thomas Frank's side a healthy six-point cushion above the relegation zone, with a game in hand.  Wolves remain in 10th after back-to-back home defeats - four points adrift of West Ham in the seventh, and final, European spot.

Rare day when Wolves lack bite

Toney almost joined Wolves in 2014 only for the deal to reportedly fall through because of a failed medical.  They could have done with a striker with his cutting edge in this encounter given their impressive wide play but lack of penalty-box threat.

Matheus Cunha now has nine goals and six assists in 23 Premier League appearances this season

Matheus Cunha scored a hat-trick as Wolves came from behind to stun Chelsea and replace the Blues in the top half of the Premier League table.  

Cole Palmer gave Mauricio Pochettino's hosts a 19th-minute lead when he calmly slotted past Jose Sa following Moises Caicedo's defence-splitting pass.  But Wolves levelled less than three minutes later when Cunha's shot took a significant deflection off Thiago Silva and wrong-footed Djordje Petrovic.  The turnaround was complete shortly before the break, courtesy of another deflected shot, as Rayan Ait-Nouri met Pedro Neto's cutback and sent the ball in off Axel Disasi.  The home supporters greeted the half-time whistle with boos but Chelsea were unable to produce a fightback of their own, instead falling two goals behind when the electric Neto beat Silva for pace and picked out Cunha for his second.   The Brazilian then completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot after being brought down by Malo Gusto, sending Petrovic the wrong way with eight minutes remaining to put the result beyond doubt before Silva headed in a late consolation.  Wolves' thoroughly deserved victory moved Gary O'Neil's side up to 10th, one point and one place above Chelsea after 23 games.

Marcus Rashford had opened the scoring five minutes into his United return, having been absent from the FA Cup fourth round with illness amid reports he had missed training following a night out in Belfast, before Rasmus Hojlund doubled the lead. Pablo Sarabia pulled one back from the penalty spot, before Scott McTominay seemingly made it safe for the visitors by heading in a corner with 15 minutes left shortly after coming on as a second-half substitute. But that was only the start of the late chaos. Wolves captain Kilman ensured a grandstand finish by scoring from close range following a corner. Then, in the sixth of nine added minutes, Neto struck home past the wrong-footed Andre Onana as United were caught on the break.    Wolves celebrated wildly - but it proved premature as Mainoo had the final word in a remarkable game.

West Brom v Wolves suspended following crowd trouble. isgraceful scenes of crowd disorder marred the Black Country derby and halted play for 34 minutes as Wolves beat West Brom in the FA Cup at the Hawthorn s

Wolves' victory was significant in the sense it was their first against West Brom in the FA Cup since 1949 and their first at the Hawthorns since 1996.    Skipper Jed Wallace is one of the Baggies most saleable assets and it was the 29-year-old that Alex Mowatt was trying to find with the corner that led to Wolves' opener.  Wallace had dropped deep for the pre-planned set-piece, but Matt Doherty read it, intercepted and set Neto free.  The Portugal star wasn't smooth in his approach to the Baggies box but he eventually got enough control to send a low shot beyond Josh Griffiths.  Cunha's goal was also a breakaway, although by then the energy had gone out of West Brom's play.

Brighton and Wolves cancelled each other out in a goalless Premier League affair at Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls' best chance came in the 11th minute when Facundo Buonanotte met a corner at the back post but his header was cleared off the line by Tommy Doyle.  Brighton also struck the woodwork when Wolves captain Max Kilman deflected Jack Hinshelwood's cross on to his own post after 54 minutes.  Wolves went closest just after the restart with Brighton keeper Jason Steele diving to keep out Matheus Cunha before the visiting forward fired over the bar on the rebound.  A point helped Brighton move above Manchester United into seventh, while Wolves extended their unbeaten league run to four matches and are 11th.

. Shortly after the home side hit the post, Joao Pedro drove into the box, before being tackled by Nelson Semedo just as he was about to unleash a close-range shot. And, despite playing some nice football in midfield, Brighton's attacking momentum ultimately fizzled out.

  Wolves were hoping to win four successive top-flight matches for the first time since January 1972, when they were managed by Bill McGarry.

Matheus Cunha has scored seven goals in 22 appearances for Wolves this season

Wolves booked an FA Cup fourth-round derby trip to West Brom after local boy Nathan Fraser came off the bench to turn the replay against Brentford on its head.  Despite leading three times in the tie overall, and playing 80 minutes with a man advantage in the first game, Brentford were unable to secure victory as Matheus Cunha's extra-time penalty sent Wolves through.  

Brentford struck early in both halves.  Former Wolves defender Nathan Collins took just 13 minutes to put the visitors ahead when he swivelled and fired home and the second period was only seven minutes old when the ball bounced into the path of Neal Maupay, who found the net, just as he did in the first game.  But, just as they did at Brentford, Wolves pulled themselves back into the game.  

Nelson Semedo was able to tap the first equaliser into an empty net as the rebound fell kindly after Thomas Strakosha had repelled the Portuguese defender's initial effort. Then Fraser struck.  The 18-year-old was born and raised in Wolverhampton and came through the club's academy. He had only been on the field two for two minutes when he drove a superb effort into the far corner.  Fraser must have thought he had won it two minutes later when another powerful shot was somehow kept out by Strakosha to ensure the contest went to extra time.  

It took a controversial penalty to swing the tie in the hosts' favour, Brentford complaining bitterly as Pedro Neto hit the deck.  However, referee Andrew Madley was unmoved, VAR Graham Scott backed him up and Cunha set up Wolves' first meeting with West Brom in front of supporters since 2012, given the Premier League encounters three years ago were both played in empty stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wolves earned an FA Cup third-round replay with Premier League rivals Brentford despite having Joao Gomes sent off after just nine minutes.  Midfielder Gomes was given a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Brentford captain Christian Norgaard. The hosts dominated possession at Brentford Community Stadium and led on 41 minutes when Neal Maupay fired home. But Wolves grabbed a draw in fine style as Tommy Doyle drove in from 25 yards for his first goal for the club

Two Brentford actions should also have been red according to GON The tackle on Tommy Doyle [by Damsgaard] is a straight leg with studs, just as bad as Joao.  Then [Lewis-Potter] grabbing Nelson Semedo by the throat is a red. We were saying on the bench, it will be a red, VAR will give a red, so I was really surprised
