🔥Everton v Wolves🔥[LIVE]

Game day already, I’m knackered from the match thread frenzy, so I’m sure the players must feel fatigued. On a plus note....we’re only playing against Liverpool’s 3rd best football club, so we should be able to get something out of this game

Fabian Delph could play his first Premier League game for Everton after making his comeback from a groin injury in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

Injured midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin is their only unavailable player.

Wolves' Adama Traore will hope to start his first league game of the season after impressing in the Europa League qualifying win against Torino.

Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Ryan Bennett did not play on Thursday and could return to the starting 11

They're strong at home though, and really ought to make it six Goodison wins in a row, especially against a team burdened by Europa League qualification since July.

I say 'burdened', but ever-impressive Wolves have made it look a breeze, with relatively little rotation of players too.

The Thursday-Sunday pattern they are committed to will really test the squad, and the sooner they get a first Premier League win the better.

After another busy week, they'd surely settle for still being unbeaten after this.

VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT

Everton manager Marco Silva: "They [Wolves] had a very good season last season, this will be the third season where almost all the players are playing together, they know each other well.

"They [are] a strong team, a solid team, they are really strong in a counter-attack, they will be solid every time, waiting for the right moment in a counter-attack to create problems for us and in set-pieces as well.

"For us to play in our way, we have to be always in a good balance, prepare well in our attacking moments but be ready to lose the ball because in that moment they are really strong."

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head

Wolves can win back-to-back league games at Goodison Park for the first time since 1960.
They could also secure consecutive league wins in this fixture for the first time since 1979.
Everton

Everton's loss against Aston Villa was just their third in 14 top-flight games.
The Toffees have kept clean sheets in their last six league games at Goodison, winning the last five of those matches.
They could set a new club record by winning six successive Premier League home fixtures without conceding a goal.
Everton have not conceded a top-flight goal at Goodison since a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on 6 February.
The Merseysiders have recorded 12 top-flight clean sheets this calendar year - a tally exceeded only by Manchester City (prior to the latest round of matches), who have 13.
Everton's three Premier League games this season have seen a league-low three goals scored, with the Toffees having the joint-worst attack (one goal) and the joint-best defence (two goals conceded) in the competition.
Jordan Pickford has completed 90 minutes in all 110 of his top-flight appearances. He is one shy of equalling the record for the most Premier League games while playing the full 90 minutes in each one, matching Ali Al Habsi's tally (for Bolton and Wigan).
Wolves

Wolves have drawn their opening three league games for only the second time in their history and first since 1938.
They have won only one of their last eight Premier League away fixtures (D3, L4), a 2-1 victory at Watford on 27 April.
Wolves have gained 16 points from losing positions since the start of last season, a joint league-high with Liverpool.
They have come from behind to salvage a point in their last two Premier League matches.
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has faced Marco Silva away from home three times previously in league football - twice in the Portuguese top flight and once in the Premier League - and won all three games.
Raul Jimenez has scored seven goals in seven starts in all competitions in 2019-20.

Amusing thing is Scotland get a second chance with the play off which they will host which will involve likely Norway, Serbia and one of Bulgaria or Israel.

Yes, that really will be amusing watching them blow that chance as well 😂😂

It was 50 years ago this week that Peter Knowles made the amazing decision to give up football and become a Jehova’s Witness. He was to become a window cleaner, a milkman then a warehouseman in the marks and spencer store in Wolverhampton.

One of the most talented players to play for the club he would probably have gone on to be an England international and Robbie Keane is the most similar player we have had since. He scored over 60 goals for Wolves averaging more than one every three games from midfield.

Wolves fans have ever since wondered how good he could have become, but evidently his retirement is something he has never regretted

Certainly more to do with your life than play football.

Cleaning windows is just one example.

You think Scotland would beat any of them? Poor nations like them should be put in qualifiers against the Ikea of Malta, Gibraltar, San Marino then only winners of that go onto another qualifying stage against the likes of Moldova, Luxembourg etc. Even then the Jocks would fail ha ha ha ha ha
