Everton and the Wolves face off on Monday in an English Premier League showdown at Goodison Park. When these two teams faced off on March 13th it was the Wolves that secured the 1-0 victory.
Everton comes into this game sitting in 17th place in the standings having picked up 14 points. While most teams had friendlies or games heading into this game, that wasn’t the case for Everton. The last game for Everton came on November 12th against AFC Bournemouth, and they were defeated 3-0 in that game. They had 65 percent of the possession and three shots on goal, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated. Everton had lost three games in a row and there is some real concern about this team. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is dealing with a knee issue, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. If he is able to go in this game, it’s expected that he will come off the bench. Conor Coady isn’t able to play either, going against his parent club.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wolves, who sit in 20th place in the standings, having picked up 10 points. The Wolves last game came on Tuesday in the EFL Cup against Gillingham. The Wolves scored two goals in that game and that led to the 2-0 victory. The Wolves had 25 shots, six shots on target, and two goals. Chiquinho, Pedro Neto, and Sasa Kalajdzic are all still dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game. This is a huge game for the Wolves, and although they really need three points, they have to come away with at least one point.
Being at home to Everton is a big boost, and this Wolves defense has had some major issues all season. This might not be a game where Everton scores three goals, but it should only take one or two goals to get the job done. Everton is going to score a couple of goals and will secure the victory.
