Wolves Recent Form & Team News
Wolves cannot be happy with their performances midway through the Premier League season. Namely, they accumulated fewer points after 17 rounds than in each of their last two campaigns (W6, D4, L7). They’ve also allowed the opening goal in each of their previous seven games in the league. On the contrary, though, only Liverpool (45) and Manchester United (44) collected more points from losing positions (41) since the start of the 2018/19 season.
Wolves lost two of their eight league games at home so far (W3, D3, L2). Yet, despite that relatively decent record, they’re usually slow to get the things going. Espirito Santo’s men have led at the interval in only one of their PL games at Molineux so far (HT: W1, D5, L2). They scored 77.78% of their home goals in the second 45 minutes.
Player to watch: In-form defender Romain Saiss bagged two goals in his last three PL matches, as many as in his previous 40.
Nuno Espirito Santo cannot count on Raul Jimenez (concussion), Jonny (knee), Fernando Marcal (groin), and Daniel Podence (calf). Willy Boly (thigh) is questionable to feature.
Everton Recent Form & Team News
Everton’s loss in the previous round of the Premier League was their only defeat in six league games (W4, D1, L1). The Toffees also won five games away from home this term (W5, D1, L2), as many as in the entire last PL campaign (W5, D3, L11). Furthermore, five of their previous seven goals in away matches came in the opening half.
Each of the last four H2H encounters in the league provide over 2.5 goals, although the Toffees couldn’t find the back of the net in three of their last five trips to Molineux (W1, D3, L1). Everton also received a yellow card in the opening 20 minutes in each of their previous two duels there.
Player to watch: Richarlison netted four goals in his last four appearances against Wolves.
Hot stat: Only Manchester United won more matches when both teams have scored than Everton. The Red Devils did that on five occasions.
Carlo Ancelotti will be without Allan (thigh), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (thigh), Fabian Delph (thigh), and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon).
