Everton face another tricky Premier League fixture on Saturday as they square off with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium. With the holiday season seeing games played throughout the week, you can follow EPL live scores for today’s matches in real time and also ensure you follow Everton’s results even if you are away on holiday. 

The Toffees are currently sitting on the edge of the relegation zone, while the Wanderers have climbed to 11th after back-to-back top-flight wins. 

Match Preview 

Everton’s four-game winning run came to an end last weekend after Tottenham Hotspur defeated them 2-1 in North London. 

The Toffees then slumped to another disappointing 3-1 loss to Manchester City on Wednesday to further increase their relegation fears to the Championship. 

City dominated possession but it was the hosts who took the lead against the run of play. Jack Harrison fired home from close range in the 29th minute after being brilliantly set up by Dwight McNeil. 

Pep Guardiola’s side restored parity early in the second half with a thunderous strike from Phil Foden. 

Julian Alvarez added another from the penalty spot before Bernardo Silva capped off an excellent comeback victory with a late third. 

The result leaves Sean Dyche’s side just a point ahead of 18th-placed Luton Town, who beat Sheffield United 3-2 on Boxing Day. 

Everton have shown a great response since being hit with a 10-point deduction penalty for breaching the financial rules. 

However, recent results haven’t been very positive and they need to pick up points to ensure their Premier League survival. 

The Merseyside outfit face another difficult test this weekend as they travel to the West Midlands to take on Wolves. 

The Wanderers have recently seen an upturn in their fortunes, picking up an impressive 10 points from their last five matches. 

Gary O’Neil’s men cruised past Brentford on Wednesday following their 2-1 home success against Chelsea. 

Hwang Hee-chan netted a brace while Mario Lemina and Jeanricner Bellegarde also scored to help Wolves to a comfortable 4-1 victory. 

Team News 

Abdoulaye Doucoure wasn’t part of the Everton squad in midweek against City. The 30-year-old is said to be recovering well from his hamstring injury but the Wolves game may come too soon for him. Idrissa Gueye was also missing last time out, and it is uncertain whether he will be available for Saturday’s game at the Molineux Stadium. 

As for Wolves, Hwang Hee-chan was forced off the pitch before halftime against Brentford. But manager Gary O’Neil confirmed afterwards that his injury is not severe and that he should be available for the upcoming league fixture. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton potential line-ups 

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Sa; Kilman, Dawson, T Gomes; Semedo, J Gomes, Lemina, H Bueno; Sarabia, Cunha, Hwang

Everton: Pickford; Patterson, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Gomes, Onana; Harrison, Garner, McNeil; Beto

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Everton prediction 

Everton will be highly motivated to seal maximum points this weekend to widen the gap with the relegation zone. However, their recent record against Wolves has been terrible, with the Toffees losing four of their last five league meetings with the Wanderers. 

Everton played well against Tottenham and Manchester City, even though they ended up losing both games. We believe they will do enough to come away with a point from the Molineux Stadium.
