While they aren’t in scintillating form, Wolves rarely lose matches at home. Everton have just one win in the last five meetings between the clubs with a draw likely at Molineux.
Wolves have had a difficult month or so, with below par results seeing them slip to 13th in the Premier League table. They are winless in their last four Premier League matches, starting with a 2-1 loss away to Burnley. That was followed up with a 1-1 draw at home to Tottenham, a 1-0 draw away to Manchester United and a 3-3 draw away to Brighton. Last time out, Wolves got back to winning ways after beating Crystal Palace in the FA Cup. Adama Traore scored the only goal of the game in the 35th minute. Wolves are facing the prospect of missing Daniel Podence, Willy Boly, Fernando Marcal, Raul Jimenezand Jonny through injury.
Everton have risen to 7th in the Premier League table after a strong run of form in the league that saw them win four matches in a row. Carlo Ancelotti’s team defeated Chelsea, Leicester City and Arsenal in successive weeks before a late 1-0 win away to Sheffield United thanks to Gylfi Sigurdsson. They did, however, lose their last away game after falling to a 1-0 loss at home to West Ham. The Toffees also needed extra time to defeat Rotherham in the FA Cup at the weekend. Cenk Tosun and Abdoulaye Doucoure scored as they battled to a 2-1 win at Goodison Park. Everton are set to be without midfielders Allan, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin due to injury. Dominic Calvert Lewin is also set to miss out on Tuesday’s action.
Wolves have 46 wins in this fixture, while Everton have 61 matches. There have also been 27 draws played out between the two sides. Wolves have drawn 2 of their last 3 matches.
