Wolverhampton Wanderers called on a 97th-minute penalty from Raul Jimenez to salvage them a point in a poor, lacklustre performance against Burnley last week – this means the Wanderers have just three points from the first three games.
However, after the victory over Torino in midweek, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have confirmed their entry into the Europa League group stages.
But, with the Premier League back in next to no time, Wolves are travelling to Goodison Park today.
So, how will Santo line-up his side this time around? We’re going for continuity.
Both Willy Boly and Conor Coady continued their impressive form in midweek receiving a 7/10 and an 8/10 respectively (as per Birmingham Mail) – both should keep their place, whilst Ryan Bennett was rested in that game and should come back in for the sake of continuity.
Ruben Neves continues to pull the strings alongside last season’s player of the year Joao Moutinho. Neves averages 7.3 long balls per game right now [WhoScored.com], whilst Moutinho’s 2.3 key passes per game show just how important both are to this Wolves team.
Alongside them, after Leander Dendoncker scored midweek and registered a solid 8/10 display, he should keep his spot.
Elsewhere, Adama Traore put in another Man of the Match performance against Torino, just as he did in the away fixture. The Spaniard earned himself an 8/10 and now has three assists in seven matches, which should force him into the side.
Up top, the form of Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez is keeping summer signing Patrick Cutrone on the bench. Jimenez bagged again midweek, bringing his tally to seven in eight games [WhoScored.com], whilst Jota has three in nine alongside the Mexican [WhoScored.com].
