Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton odds and betting statistics



Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton match preview

Can Everton claim a vital victory in their battle against the drop?

In their most-recent away game, 12 days ago, the Toffees scored 5+ on the road in a Premier League match for the first time since Boxing Day 2018.

Against all odds, Sean Dyche’s team demolished Brighton 5-1 in Sussex, with Abdoulaye Doucouré bagging a first half brace, before Dwight McNeil netted twice late on, with an own goal in-between.

However, the Blues could not back up this result last Sunday, swatted aside 3-0 by Manchester City at Goodison.

So, with two games to go, Everton are outside the relegation zone, but kick off just one point above Leeds and only two clear of Leicester.

On the final day, the Toffees welcome Bournemouth to Merseyside, a winnable fixture, but they need a victory in the Black County to ensure their fate remains in their own hands.

Julen Lopetegui’s team continue to be Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to home and away matches, suffering their third successive defeat on the road a week ago, beaten 2-0 by Man United.

In front of their own fans though, Wolves have won four successive top-flight matches for the first time since April 1975, beating Chelsea, Brentford, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa, all without conceding.

This leaves the Wanderers in 13th, looking forward to a sixth successive season of Premier League football.

Everton’s future is far more uncertain, so can Dyche’s team claim a precious three points at Molineux?

Julen Lopetegui handed a Premier League debut to goalkeeper Daniel Bentley at Old Trafford and, having made seven saves, recording a post-shot xG figure of 2.5, he’s set to keep his place.

In fact, an unchanged line-up is expected, with Diego Costa seeking to add to his four goals against Everton, only scoring more frequently in the Premier League against Swansea.

Predicted XI (4-4-2): Bentley; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Toti; Lemina, Neves, Nunes, Neto; Diego Costa, Cunha.

Everton team news

Nathan Patterson will continue to deputise for captain Séamus Coleman at right-back while, on the other side, it was Mason Holgate who get the nod against Manchester City

With Vitalii Mykolenko still sidelined, Holgate is set to continue to fill-in out of position.

James Garner’s excellent form will see him keep his place in midfield, chosen over Amadou Onana.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was taken off at half time last Sunday and, if he’s out, Everton really could be destine for the drop.

Predicted XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Mina, Holgate; Gana Gueye, Doucouré, Garner, McNeil, Iwobi; Calvert-Lewin.
