Wolverhampton vs Everton predictions for Sunday’s Premier League match at Molineux. Can Wolves recover from two defeats on the bounce to beat the Toffees?

Everton won just four of their 17 Premier League away games this season, and the Toffees were beaten in three of their last four away games.

Under 2.5 goals were scored in each of Wolves’ last three Premier League home games. Everton failed to score in two of their last three Premier League away assignments.

Back-to-back defeats for Wolves
Wolves’ quest to secure a top five finish this season and Champions League football for next year hit another major stumbling block when they were beaten at the death by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Wednesday evening.

Wanderers were denied what would have been a useful point against the Blades in Sheffield when John Egan, United’s match-changer for the second game in a row, powered home an injury time header from a corner.

The defeat, which follows hot on the heels of a loss against Arsenal, leaves Nuno Espirito Santo’s men six points behind in-form Man Utd in 5th spot, while one more poor result could see Wanderers overtaken by both Sheffield United and the Gunners.

Everton targeting away day improvement
Everton shared the spoils in their own mid-week assignment at home to Southampton on Thursday – a result that pushed their unbeaten run at Goodison Park to an impressive nine games after their 1-1 draw with the Saints.

However, while results have been promising on Merseyside, the Toffees inability to pick up points on the road remains a frustrating problem that Carlo Ancelotti just can’t seem to fix.

Ahead of their latest test at Molineux, Everton were beaten in four of their last seven top-flight tussles on their travels, and it’s worth noting that their only successes were secured on visits to relegation candidates West Ham (1-1), Watford (3-2) and Norwich City (1-0).

Wolves to get back on track
Everton’s continuing away day malaise has seen them win just four times in 17 attempts overall since August, and Wolves look generously priced to take advantage of the Toffees’ travel sickness on Sunday.

With defeats at Leicester, Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham already suffered this term, Everton have performed badly in away matches against the division’s top clubs this season, and 6th placed Wanderers, who also rank among the league’s best, should prove equally tricky opponents for the Blues.

Wanderers were turned over just twice in their last eight Premier League runouts at Molineux, and Wolves were the better side for large swathes of their most recent home reverse to Arsenal on July 4.

Having lost ground in the race for European qualification, Wolves will be determined to recentre themselves ahead of the campaign’s climactic fixtures, and with Everton’s dismal away record considered, Wolves are worth backing to win at the prices quoted.

Our correct score prediction of 1-0 anticipates a narrow margin of victory however. With just four goals in five league fixtures since the restart, Wolves’ output in the final third has been modest, though a sound defensive platform allowed them to keep clean sheets in three of those matches during the same period.

Everton meanwhile, failed to register in two of their last three on the road, and the Toffees should struggle to penetrate again against Wolves on Sunday.

Key Battle: Raul Jimenez vs Michael Keane
Mexican striker Raul Jimenez has scored a huge 33% of Wolves’ total Premier League goals this season, and the 29-year-old will again be Wanderers’ most potent attacking threat on Sunday.

Toffees centre-half Michael Keane has developed into one of Everton’s most reliable operators this term, though the England international was given a tough time when the Blues last played Wolves in September.

Everton eventually emerged on the right side of a five-goal thriller that day, though the influential Jimenez struck one of Wanderers goals. Keane will need to improve to keep Wolves’ prolific talisman off the scoresheet in Sunday’s rematch.

Adama Traore and Pedro Neto are both carrying knocks ahead of Sunday’s game, though Wanderers will hope to have both in reserve on the bench.

Nuno Espirito Santo has an otherwise clean bill of health and a full complement of personnel to choose from.

Wolves predicted line-up: Patricio – Boly, Coady, Saiss – Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny – Jimenez, Jota

Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Cenk Tosun and Fabian Delph are all still in the Everton treatment room, while Andre Gomes and Mason Holgate are also nursing ailments and could miss out.

Gylfi Sigurdsson could come back in to the starting XI after a decent showing from the bench in mid-week, while Theo Walcott could also be in line to start having made the squad for Thursday.

Everton predicted line-up: Pickford – Coleman, Keane, Mina, Digne – Davies, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Gordon, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
