Wolves vs Everton: Top free betting tips
Wolves take on Everton at Molineux on Saturday 30 December with the home side flying after their emphatic 4-1 away win against Brentford on Wednesday night. Gary O'Neil will welcome Sean Dyche and Everton to Molineux and the Toffees will be looking to bounce back from their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday. Our Wolves vs Everton prediction is for a home win provided Hwang Hee-Chan is fit enough to play from the start for the hosts.
Match result prediction: Wolves to win
This season has been somewhat of a rollercoaster for Wolves so far but they are upward trending at the minute after beating Chelsea at home and Brentford away in their last two league fixtures. Everton's season has been fairly similar but they are downward trending after following their Carabao Cup exit up with back-to-back Premier League defeats. The form and momentum is with Wolves and with Pedro Neto reportedly ready to return to action on Saturday, they should be even better.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Without their points deduction, Everton would be in the top half of the Premier League table and to be in that position they have been very good all season at creating chances. They are still underperforming their season Xg but have still managed to score at least one goal in each of their last seven appearances in all competitions. Wolves, meanwhile, have scored in nine of their last ten Premier League matches.
Correct score prediction: Wolves 2-1 Everton
Wolves have the narrow edge here but if Hwang Hee-Chan is ruled out and/or if Pedro Neto still isn't risked from the start then a result for Everton would not be a shock in the slightest. However, the news around both men sounds positive and their partnership with Cunha at the top of the pitch should be too much for a depleted Everton defence to handle.
Wolves vs Everton team news
Wolves predicted lineup vs Everton
The biggest question mark this weekend for Wolves surrounds Hwang Hee-Chan who came off against Brentford with a back spasm after scoring a first-half brace. Gary O'Neil is optimistic that the South Korean will be available for this one while Pedro Neto could be in line for his first start since injuring his hamstring two months ago. Craig Dawson will also face a late fitness test while Fabio Silva has joined Rangers on loan so won't take up his usual space on the Wolves bench.
Sa – Semedo, Kilman, Toti, Bueno, Ait-Nouri – Lemina, Gomes – Hee-Chan, Cunha, Neto
Everton predicted lineup vs Wolves
Everton will be without two of their most important players again for the trip to Wolves as Idrissa Gueye and Abdoulaye Doucoure both look set to miss out due to injury. The club still have a problem at full-back too with both Ashley Young and Seamus Coleman doubts ahead of the trip. At the top of the pitch, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will probably start the match after being rested from the start against Man City.
Pickford – Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko – Onana, Garner, Gomes – Harrison, Calvert-Lewin, McNeil
