On Wednesday, Wolverhampton Wanderers suffer an away defeat to Everton at Goodison Park. With each team arriving on the back of a league defeat, they were both keen to pick up points. Everton were looking forward to meeting again, following a previous defeat to Sheffield United. Wolves lost 2-0 in the last match they played against Tottenham Hotspur. As things stand, Everton and Wolves sit in position 8th (59 points) and 12th (45 points) respectively.

After a goalless first half, Everton certainly were out of the blocks quickly in the second half, with an early goal from Richarlison in the 48th minute. The final result, Everton 1, Wolves 0.

Everton brought on Tom Davies, Andre Gomes and Mason Holgate for Seamus Coleman, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Abdoulaye Doucoure. Wolves brought on Willian Jose, Leander Dendoncker and Vitinha, to replace Morgan Gibbs-White, Willy Boly and Joao Moutinho.

The referee booked Nelson Semedo for Wolves.
