Wolverhampton Wanderers face Everton tonight and are looking to exact revenge on the Toffees.

The reverse fixture resulted in a 2-1 win for Carlo Ancelotti’s men, with Alex Iwobi and Michael Keane grabbing their goals, and Ruben Neves scoring for Wolves.

Everton are not in good form right now, and have been particularly poor at home this season.

They’ve only won five at Goodison Park in the league this term, which should give Wolves confidence.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has been previewing tonight’s contest, and has given his thoughts about Wolves.

He said (evertonfc.com): “We know it will be a tough game against Wolves. They’ve had a few injuries and they’ve had to adapt because of that, but they’re are a good side and we’ll need to be at our best to get the three points.”

 

There have certainly been a few injuries at Molineux in 2020/21, and the off-season really can’t come a moment too soon for the club.

Wolves need to rediscover competitive edge

Pickford – a £30 million signing back in 2017 (BBC Sport) – believes Everton are in for a tough game, and Wolves need to ensure he’s right with those comments.

Against Spurs it was all a bit lacking in urgency and intensity.

And it was the same against Burnley a couple of weeks ago.

One or two have looked like they’re already on holiday, and if there’s any more of that tonight then three points will be unlikely.
