Everton vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Analysis and Prediction

After their unexpected 0-2 home defeat by Aston Villa, Everton have perhaps restructured themselves and are hoping to return to the winning ways when they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers. This will be their 4th match of the 2019/2020 season. The match will take place on Sunday 1st September 2019 at Goodson Park starting 14:00GMT.

Everton started the season with a low tempo in a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. They then did well to defeat Watford 1-0 before being beaten 0-2 by Aston Villa. Everton had a good purchase of players during the transfer window but their fruits haven’t started to be seen. This match will be perhaps their day to showcase their talent.

Wolves on the other hand started the season with their premier league matches being draws. This will be their fourth match of the season. They will be perhaps eyeing their first win of the season. The Wolves have had a busy month with Europa League qualifying third round and playoffs with them winning all of them. We expect a lot of fatigue but they have to soldier on for good things don’t come easy.

Everton are banking on the fatigue of Wolves to lower their performance. With their new reinforcements Everton is expected to be a real force this season even though things haven’t started shaping up for them. With time, they believe things will shape up. This match will perhaps confirm whether their expenditure during the summer transfer was worthwhile. Nevertheless, we expect the teams to share the spoils.
