Matt Doherty late show gives Wolves win

Wolves left it late before moving back up into the Premier League's top half with a dramatic 2-1 win at ten-man Newcastle.

Matt Doherty was the goalscoring hero for the visitors, notching in injury-time, to send Nuno's men up to tenth.

Diogo Jota had earlier given Wolves the lead, only for Ayoze Perez to equalise but the match turned on the red card dished out to Newcastle right-back DeAndre Yedlin for a professional foul and Doherty eventually made the extra man count.

Sky Bet cut 15th-place Newcastle to 7-2 to be relegated, while Wolves are generally available at 8-15 to finish in the top ten.

In terms of the title it's 2-5 Man City and league leaders Liverpool can be backed at 11-4 with the champions 4-1 with bet365 to eventually run out winners by at least ten points.

Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick for Liverpool in their 4-0 win at Bournemouth and Betfred responded by cutting him to 5-2 to retain his Golden Boot. Salah is on ten goals alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Sheff Utd v Crystal Palace

Expert verdict
Crystal Palace held Everton to a goalless draw on the opening day and they could play out another low-scoring affair when they take on Sheffield United. Palace lacked guile last weekend while the Blades also look a little short going forward and may struggle to break their visitors down.
