Everton vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Everton were denied a spot in the Europa League this season after Wolves did just enough in the previous campaign to make it through to the qualifiers. The chance to get back at this foe has finally arrived for the Toffees, and with home advantage at hand, they will surely be fancying their chances.
However, Marco Silva’s men have not got off to the best of starts, and have just one win under their belt from three games so far. The hosts were given a run for their money last week when they traveled to Villa Park, as their counterparts managed to slot two unanswered goals past them without breaking much of a sweat.
Wolves are currently one of the only three teams in the Premier League that are yet to admit defeat. However, the squad have been forced to share the spoils in all of their fixtures, and have picked up just three points from a possible nine.
Given that the Wanderers will be coming into the matchup on the back of a 3-2 win against Torino in their last trip on the road, get ready for an exciting clash this Sunday.
Everton vs Wolves Head to head (h2h)
- Three of their previous four games have been high scoring ones.

- Both sides have failed to find the back of the net just once in their last six matchups.
Everton vs Wolves Prediction
It is too soon to call a winner in this one, as Everton have been a confident bunch, to say the least, at home and have won without conceding in their last five Premier League games here.
Having said that, prior to their unbeaten run, the squad lost to this very same opponent. Wolves have not tasted defeat in their last three outings in a row either. However, what is certain, though, is that there will be goals down each end in this one.
Five of the last seven goals that the home team have scored so far have come in the opening forty-five minutes of the game. Considering that their last two meetings at this venue have also seen a total of seven goals in the first half, there is definitely reason to believe that the deadlock will be broken before the teams head for the break.
Four of the last seven away goals that Wolves have netted, have come in the latter forty-five minutes. Taking into account that all of their goals in the new campaign have also found their way into the back of the net during that time frame, you can count on the Wanderers to breach their opponents post the restart without fail.
