Wolverhampton Wanderers bounced back from consecutive defeats with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Everton earlier today at the Molineux Stadium as Nuno Espírito Santo’s side continue their fight for a place in next season’s Champions League.
Raul Jimenez scored Wolves first from the penalty spot in the first-half’s injury-time following a clumsy Lucas Digne foul on Daniel Podence. Leander Dendoncker headed in the second just a minute after the restart before a game-sealing third from Diogo Jota with 15 minutes to go.
Everton committed so much of their efforts in keeping the home side at bay and as a result offered little at the other end of the pitch, as Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison were given scraps to feed off at best.
The victory sees Wolves move back up into 6th place three points behind the high flying Manchester United in 5th (a position that could be good enough to earn a place in Europe’s top club competition next season).
Meanwhile, the defeat leaves the Toffees 11th and surely ends their hopes of securing a Europa League spot for the 2020/2021 season, and there was more bad news for manager Carlo Ancelotti, who was already without Mason Holgate, saw fellow centre-back Yerry Mina limp off in the first half with what appeared to be a thigh injury.
