LIVE: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton

Rafa Benitez’s Everton will be looking to bounce back from their shock 2-5 loss to Watford last weekend when they travel to Molineux to take on an in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers side. The West Midlands outfit have won four of their last six matches but the Toffees have won three of their previous four meetings between the two sides – with all of them being by a one-goal margin. The Merseyside club currently sit in 8th position in the league table on 14 points and Bruno Large’s side 11th on 13 points.

  • Full-time! Wolves 2-1 Everton

    It is all over at Molineux as Bruno Lage’s Wolves pick up their fourth victory in five Premier League games. The hosts were magnificent in the first half and thoroughly deserved to take their two-goal lead into the interval.

     

    The Toffees improved in the second period but could not do enough to salvage any points.

     

    Wolves have now won four of their last five Premier League games. As for Everton, they have suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time under Rafa Benitez.

     

    Final score – Wolves 2-1 Everton.

     

     

  • Substitution – Wolves

    90+4: Bruno Lage makes his second substitution this evening bringing on Fabio Silva to replace Hwang Hee-chan.

     

    2-1.

  • Yellow cards

    90+2: We very nearly went the entire game without seeing a yellow card; however, Seamus Coleman has been booked for clash with Ait-Nouri.

     

    90+3: Rayan Ait-Nouri has also been booked himself for the incident.

     

    2-1.

  • A change for both teams and five minutes added time

    90: Leander Dendoncker comes on to replace the current match-winner Raul Jimenez and Salomon Rondon comes on to replace Demari Gray for the visitors.

    The visitors have five minutes to try and find an equaliser which will surely earn them a valuable draw.

     

    2-1.

  • What a save by Sa!!

    86: Sa makes an excellent save to deny Anthony Gordon his first-ever senior goal. The 20-year-old’s header looks destined to find the back of the net but is excellently pushed away by the 28-year-old goalkeeper.

     

    It remains 2-1.

  • Time running out for Everton

    83: Time is very much against Toffees now. They have seven minutes plus added time to find an equaliser.

     

    2-1.

  • Substitution – Wolves

    79: Bruno Lage makes his first change of the evening bringing on Daniel Podence to replace Francisco Trincao.

     

    2-1.

  • Substitution – Everton

    78: The Toffees make their second change of the evening with Anthony Gordon coming on to replace the visitors’ goal-scorer Alex Iwobi.

     

    2-1.

  • Nearly a penalty to Wolves!

    74: Mason Holgate is lucky here. Trincao goes on a ruin down the right-hand side Holgate fouls him literally just outside the penalty area. the free-kick also comes to nothing.

     

    2-1.

  • Trincao puts it wide!

    68: Wolves have a chance to immediately regain their two-goal advantage! Hwang plays the ball into Trincao in the penalty area but he somehow shoots wide with his right foot! That could be a huge moment.

     

    It remains 2-1.
