Wolves were beaten once again in the Premier League on Tuesday night, losing 2-1 to Everton at Molineux.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were undone by a second-half header from Michael Keane, which has sent the Toffees fourth in the table.

Wolves made a terrible start, with Alex Iwobi ghosting into the area to convert Lucas Digne’s cross on six minutes.

But there was a response not long after – Rayan Ait-Nouri firing in a cross for an unmarked Ruben Neves to steer in at the back post.

Wolves had some good possession for the rest of the first half but, like against Brighton, it was a poor showing in the second 45.

Ultimately, Nuno’s side were toothless and were made to pay for a lack of a cutting edge, with Keane beating Romain Saiss in the air to score a tremendous header around 15 minutes from time.

The result makes Saturday’s Black Country Derby an absolutely massive game – defeat against West Brom would really set the alarm bells ringing.
