Everton return to Premier League action this weekend as they face off Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday. 

At a time when the Toffees are languishing in 17th spot, the Wanderers have edged closer to the upper half of the league table following recent good results. 

Match Preview 

Everton will enter Saturday’s Premier League clash on the back of a frustrating 3-1 defeat to Manchester City

Sean Dyche’s side headed to the half time break with a 1-0 lead after Jack Harrison fired home the opener in the 29th minute. 

However, City launched a stunning comeback after the interval, with Phil Foden equalising with a thunderous strike on 53 minutes. 

Julian Alvarez extended their advantage from the spot before Bernardo Silva netted the visitors third, helping Pep Guardiola’s side to an excellent comeback win. 

The result leaves Everton on the edge of the relegation zone, with just a point separating them and Luton Town. 

Sean Dyche’s men will now be desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they visit the West Midlands this weekend. 

Wolves have seen an improvement in their fortunes in recent weeks. 

Their 4-1 success over Brentford was their second consecutive win in the English top-flight. 

The Wanderers were at the top of their game last time out at the Gtech Community Stadium as they put four past the Bees to register an emphatic victory. 

Hwang Hee-chan struck twice while Mario Lemina and Jeanricner Bellegarde were also on target, helping the visitors to a resounding Premier League success. 

Team News 

Everton have a few injury woes this weekend, with Abdoulaye Doucoure still not fully recovered from his hamstring injury. Dele Alli is also set to miss out due to fitness issues. 

Meanwhile, Wolves faced a scare after Hwang Hee-chan was forced off the pitch against Brentford. However, the good news for the Midlands outfit is that the South Korean’s injury is not thought to be very severe and he should be available for the Molineux game. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton potential line-ups 

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Sa; Kilman, Dawson, T Gomes; Semedo, J Gomes, Lemina, H Bueno; Sarabia, Cunha, Hwang

Everton: Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Gomes, Onana; Harrison, Garner, McNeil; Beto

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton prediction 

Wolves are on a two-game winning run in the English top-flight, while Everton have lost their previous two league matches. The Wanderers will also have home advantage, making things very difficult for the Toffees. 

Can they still spring a surprise and get a positive result from the Premier League clash this weekend? We don’t think they will, but it will not be a one-sided affair.
