2019-20 Premier League: Week 35 – Wolves vs Everton

Date: Sunday 12 July (12:00pm BST), Venue: Molineux

Wolves kick off a quadruple Super Sunday header as they welcome Everton to Molineux in a huge test of the hosts’ top five hopes.

A win for Wolves can return them to sixth position whilst Everton will remain in eleventh position regardless of their result here.

Pedro Neto and Adama Traore could be available for Wolves if they both pass late fitness tests on a respective knock and shoulder injury. 

Everton could welcome Mason Holgate back from a knock if he passes a late fitness test. 

Andre Gomes (ankle) will face a fitness test but Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles), Fabian Delph (muscle) and Cenk Tosun (knee) remain ruled out. 

 

Stat Attack

  • Wolves are unbeaten in three of last five meetings against Everton (W1, D2, L2).
  • Everton are unbeaten in their last four trips to Molineux, of which two games finished goalless (W1, D3).
  • Wolves’ Raul Jimenez has scored once in each of his three appearances against Everton (W1, D1, L1). 
  • No Premier League defender has registered more shots on target than Wolves’ Matt Doherty, who has produced 16 attempts upon goal in 32 appearances this season. 
  • Everton strikers, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (4) and Richarlison (3) has scored seven headed goals between them this season. 

 

Prediction

After two below par performances, Wolves simply have to rediscover that clinical edge if want to rescue their rapidly fading top four hopes. 

Everton meanwhile did a solid job to scrape a point against a solid Southampton team, which will benefit them here if can be more consistent and pressurise Wolves into more mistakes. 

I therefore am not expecting an exciting encounter but I do think that Wolves will have enough to snatch a win here.

Prediction: Wolves 1-0 Everton

Result: Wolves 3-0 Everton
