Goodison Park

Punter's Pick

Both these teams are evenly matched and picking an outright winner is difficult. We feel that the over 2.5 goals market is well priced by Bet365 at 6/5. Both their games last season yielded four goals apiece and with Everton looking to attack at home and avoid a repeat of last seasons result, it is likely that this market will materialise. Wolves’ exertions in midweek may also play a part and Everton will be buoyed by the game time and options their new signings in Delph, Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi will give them. The corner count has also traditionally been low between these teams and backing under 11 at 8/11 is also a good bet with the same bookmaker.

Everton host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Goodison Park as they look to get their Premier League campaign back on track after a surprise loss. Wolves remain unbeaten this season but will be looking to get their first Premier League win of the season.

Everton come into this game off the back of a surprise 2-0 loss at Aston Villa. After getting four points in their first two games, the Toffee’s were fancied against the Midlanders, only to be sunk by goals from Wesley and Anwar El Ghazi. They did stable the ship by coming through their Carabao Cup game against Lincoln, winning 4-2 but Marco Silva will be concerned that his team will be blighted by inconsistency as they were last season. The positive news after the League Cup game was that new signing Alex Iwobi scored his first goal for the club and Moise Kean, signed from Juventus, played 74 minutes of the fixture. It was a better showing from the blue side of Merseyside and they will be desperate to make home advantage count on Sunday.

Wolves have had an impressive start to the season as they look to replicate their success of last year. The team have already played nine games in all competitions but remain unbeaten. However Nuno Espirito Santo will be keen to get his first league win under his belt as their first three league games have been draws against Leicester, Manchester United and Burnley. They managed another impressive display in beating Torino at home in the Europa League winning 2-1 courtesy of goals from Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker. Santo played a strong team on Thursday which could affect the players on Sunday given the lack of depth in their squad.

In team news, Everton were boosted by Fabian Delph making his first start for the club in the Carabao Cup and the England international could feature on Sunday. Their vast array of attacking talent will all be vying for starting berths as Moise Kean, Alex Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin and Andre Gomes all compete for spots up the top end of the field. Marco Silva has a strong squad to choose from with no casualties to any star players.

Wolves also haven’t reported any fresh injury concerns after their Europa League exertions. The small squad of Santo has gelled together well and got through much of last season without too much change. It remains to be seen how midweek football in Europe affects them but the Portuguese coach is likely to start with many of his team from their last league game against Burnley.

In head to heads last season, Wolves have just shaded the honours having drawn 2-2 at Molineux and winning 3-1 at Goodison Park. Everton will be keen to avoid a repeat when Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker all netted to give Wolves the three points.
