Wolverhampton Wanderers vs EvertonEnglish Premier League, KO: 15:00 May 20, 2023, Molineux
EVERTON'S desperate hunt for survival moves on their penultimate game in the league when they travel to an in-form Wolves team safe from the drop.
Wolves have done enough after winning three of their last six games which raised them above the dogfight. In fact, ominously for Everton, the Black Country side have now won all four of their last four games at Molineux without conceding a goal
They have been against Chelsea, Brentford, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa and although their away form has been poor, they will have been delighted to have confirmed survival well before the end of the season.
The question is which Everton will turn up here for what should be a pivotal game in their history. They ripped up every coupon in the land surely by going to a brilliant Brighton side this season and crushing them 5-1 at the Amex.
However, they were brought back to reality when champions-elect Manchester City brushed them aside in Liverpool with a 3-0 win.
They have a home game against Bournemouth to come and they could desperately do with the points here to guarantee they would be above the drop zone on the last day.
How the bookies view this
Presumably because of Everton's predicament and Wolves already reaching safety, Everton are marginal favourites here at 8/5 with bet365.
Wolves can be backed at 17/10 with William Hill and the draw is 23/10 with Skybet.
Recent head to heads
Wolves beat Everton at Goodison Park in Boxing Day this season in a 2-1 win. And Wolverhampton also did the double last season.
Players to watch
Ruben Neves netted from the penalty spot for Wolves in their penultimate game at Molineux and the Portuguese playmaker is 27/5 to score anything with UniBet.
Dwight McNeil scored a vital double in that incredible win at Brighton for Everton and he's hit form recently with five goals in his last ten games. He is 5/1 with Paddy Power to score anytime.
Anything else catch the eye?
Ignore the perilous situation Everton are in and go for a Wolves here at a juicy price.
The home side have turned into an impressive unit at Molineux and at this level, teams don't tend to switch off because of an imminent fortnight in Ibiza.
True, Everton could turn into world-beaters like they were at Brighton, but would you really be wanting to back them at favourites given they have only won two out of 18 away league games this season?
There were seven bookings in the last clash between them and given what is at stake for Everton, go for over 4.5 cards with bet365, especially with David Coote in charge, who flashed ten in the Championship play-off between Middlesbrough and Coventry City this week.
