Everton midfielder Allan gives his verdict about Wolves so far

Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Everton tomorrow night in the Premier League.

Bruno Lage’s side are back at Molineux for match number 10, and are looking to heap more misery on the Toffees.

Rafa Benitez’s side were stunned last weekend as Watford ran out 5-2 winners.

A victory for Wolves would see them go above Everton in the table.

It’s four unbeaten at the moment, and Wolves have taken 13 points from the last 18 available.

Wolves will need to be much better than they were against Leeds in order to get back to winning ways.

Despite dipping in recent weeks in terms of performance, Everton midfielder Allan still praised Wolves ahead of the clash.

The £21 million star said (via Everton official): “Wolves are on a good run. They are a team that like to play with the ball and have strong, quick players who are very suited to playing on the counter-attack.

An accurate assessment

It seems the change in Wolves hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Wolves do like to play with the ball now following the arrival of Lage.

That said, Wolves can still play on the counter-attack if needs be, with Hwang and Traore particularly well suited to that kind of style.

Tomorrow, it would be nice to see Wolves get back to dominating the ball and creating chances, as was the case in the first few games.

Lage has openly talked about getting points on the board ahead of a tough run of fixtures at Christmas though. So it would be no surprise to see a more conservative approach with a plan to counter-attack.
