Team News: Wolves
Leander Dendoncker (Knock), Jonny Otto (Knee Injury), Raúl Jiménez (Fractured Skull), Daniel Podence (Thigh Problems) and Renat Dadashov (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will not be taking part for Wolves gaffer Nuno Espírito Santo.
Team News: Everton
In an otherwise full-strength group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti to contend with. Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon rupture) won’t be in action.
We’re thinking that Everton should have enough to get a goal against this Wolves outfit, however that possibly won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We are anticipating both teams to score in a 2-1 victory for Wolves by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Hopefully this is a good one.
