Everton vs Wolverhampton Wanderers match preview
This new season may only be two games old but, given that these two kick off bottom and second bottom, this is an absolutely massive fixture for both.
Everton were, quite frankly, abysmal last Sunday, demolished 4-0 by Aston Villa, with the visitors lucky to only concede four, equally fortunate to score nil.
A week earlier, as the Toffees were beaten 1-0 by Fulham, it was the exact opposite scenario, with the Blues’ xG figure of 2.7 the highest of any team in Premier League history without scoring in a game.
Sean Dyche came in and saved Everton from relegated last season but, even with 36 games to go, there are justified concerns that the club’s 70-year stay in the top-flight will be coming to an end.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are also yet to get off the mark, narrowly losing their opener before shipping four, exactly the same as their hosts.
First, just six days after Gary O’Neil arrived as manager, Wolves played Manchester United off the park at Old Trafford, but still managed to lose 1-0, denied a stonewall penalty in stoppage time.
However, they certainly did not build on that last weekend, steamrollered 4-1 by Brighton at Molineux, conceding three times in a nine minute spree immediately after half time.
Hwang Hee-chan’s header later on the literal definition of a consolation goal.
Following a summer of turmoil, most predicted Wolves to go down before a ball was kicked, but a victory on Merseyside over relegation rivals could spark their campaign into life.
Wolves are unbeaten in four meetings with Everton, including winning both of their last two trips to Goodison, but who will be plunged into further despair following this clash?
Everton team news
Both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alex Iwobi went off injured at Villa Park on Sunday, the former getting an almighty thwack in the face, while Iwobi pulled his hamstring.
There is hope that Calvert-Lewin could feature, possibly in an Osimhen-esque mask, while Arnaut Danjuma is likely to come in out-wide.
Dwight McNeil, new arrival Jack Harrison, André Gomes, club captain Séamus Coleman and Dele all remain injured.
Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Keane, Young; Gana Gueye, Doucouré, Onana, Garner, Danjuma; Calvert-Lewin.
Wolverhampton Wanderers team news
Star midfielder Matheus Nunes, who’s been attracting interest from Man City, was sent off in stoppage time last weekend, so will sit this one out through suspension.
If Gary O’Neil decides to go for it, Pablo Sarabia or Hwang Hee-chan could come in out-wide,
Fábio Silva and Matheus Cunha led the line against Brighton, but Saša Kalajdžić will be hoping to start this time.
Predicted XI (4-4-2): José Sá; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Aït-Nouri; Lemina, Gomes, Hwang Hee-chan, Neto; Silva, Cunha.
