There’s not much to separate these two teams after nine Premier League games played. Everton started the season brightly although they have taken just four points from their previous five top-flight encounters and the only win came against Norwich City. There are injury problems, with Abdoulaye Doucoure and Dominic Calvert-Lewin being big misses.

Rafael Benitez will certainly want to address the defensive leakiness which saw five goals conceded at home to Watford, with the Spaniard pointing to individual errors that were to blame for the collapse at the end of the game at Goodison Park. Surely we will see a more steely resolve from his team here.

Wolves have been fairly shot-shy at Molineux this term and it has only been a match against Newcastle where we’ve seen Bruno Lage’s side find the net. Wanderers have picked up form-wise after three successive defeats which opened the season and Hee-Chan Hwang has proved to be a smart loan signing from RB Leipzig.

We think that Lage’s team keep a nice defensive shape which includes Conor Coady operating in front of Jose Sa and it points towards a low-scoring encounter.
