Wolverhampton Wanderers punched above their weight under Bruno Lage last season and their top half finish was at odds with the expected goals stats. Therefore, it was no surprise when the Midlands side struggled from the off in the 2022/23 season and the Portuguese was given the heave-ho, with the club now recruiting Julen Lopetegui.

Lopetegui was in charge of Sevilla at the beginning of the campaign having previously steered the Spanish side into the Champions League, with the Spaniard tasked with now engineering a great escape as part of his first management position in England. Three points in Merseyside will be a huge boost.

It’s likely that the visitors will reshape their squad in January and might be regretting the decision to allow Conor Coady to leave, with the latter now turning out for Everton and he’ll be determined to help the Toffees move away from the bottom three places, although scoring goals has also been an issue.

Losing Richarlison to Tottenham was a blow and the constant injury problems for Dominic Calvert-Lewin means that we might see a low-scoring clash at Goodison Park. You can go for Under 2.5 Goals or alternatively side with BTTS No. The draw could also come into sharp focus.
