Everton will be looking to bounce back after a nightmare showing at Tottenham on Monday night when they found themselves three goals down in 37 minutes and went on to lose 5-0. The defeat was their third straight in the league and means they have taken just four points in their last ten. It means that the Merseysiders were 17th going into the weekend with just one place and point seperating them from the drop zone. They need to find goals from somewhere having blanked in each of their last three.
At Goodison Park, the Toffees have won just two their last nine and have suffered defeat in three of their last four. They have a difficult set of home games remaining with Chelsea, Man Utd, Wolves and in-form Newcastle still to travel here. One player who likes playing at home is Anthony Gordon and he has three from three in front of his own fans. Only two of the last nine visitors here (Leeds and Spurs) have failed to net.
Wolves bounced back from a three-game losing run in emphatic fashion in midweek as they hammered Watford 4-0. The result was probably too late for their Champions League hopes (they are eighth, five points Arsenal and played three games more) but should be great for returning confidence. It also marked a first clean sheet in four for a side normally known for their defensive resolve. Ruben Neves and Daniel Podence both have two goals from their last five games.
Away from Molineux, Wanderers have lost their last two (defeats at Arsenal and West Ham) but won the four prior to that. Games tend to be tight when Wolves are on the road with eight of their last ten going under 2.5 goals. Joao Moutinho has managed to grab two goals from his last five appearances on his travels. Five of the last eight Wolves away games have been goalless going into the break.
Everton vs Wolves: Match Stats
Wolves expected goals data is being to catch up with them as their defensive has started to concede more goals than earlier this season. In just one of their last five have they kept clean sheet and that was against a toothless Watford during the week. Anthony Gordon has three in his last three at home so back him to score at any time.
Ruben Neves is a combatative player with five bookings from his last nine starts and he might be in trouble here. Danny Van Der Beek will likely start in midfield for the Toffees and his skillful range of passing and ball control could be tough to handle. Neves to be shown a card at any time looks a sensible bet.
