AWAY DAYS

  • End of 2nd Half
 

FULL TIME

Everton head into the top four in the Premier League after snatching all three points in a 2-1 win over Wolves at the Molineux.

They were by far the better side for the first 10 minutes and the last ten minutes, and sometimes inbetween. They've made it count and done enough to get across the line here and head fourth in the Premier League.

One point off Liverpool, four points off top. Huge.

90+5' 

Richarlison almost finishes the job but runs into trouble one on one!

90+4' 

Hoever meets the ball but his header is just wide.

Toffees fans breathe a sigh of relief because that was too close for comfort.

90+3' 

Wolves look desperate for a leveller but they're quality in the final third is costing them with some weird and wayward passes.

But they've got a corner...

90+1' 

Everton are heading for a huge three points here.

This will put them fourth in the Premier League. Both these sides have ambitions for Europe and while Wolves' quest has stunted somewhat this season Everton look well on their way.

FIVE ADDED MINUTES TO RUIN THIS ANALYSIS

89' 

Just two minutes or regular time left.

Everton defending so well but it's all Wolves as you'd expect.

87' 

Wolves change: Moutinho is off, Vitinha is on. Attack, attack, attack.

Everton change: Coleman comes on for James...defend, defend, defend.

86' 

Neves has a free-kick in a very Neves position, and it skims off the top of the bar. Great effort.

85' 

That header is the first attempt on target for either side in the second half.

83' 

HEADERS

82' 

Everton looked so blunt up top with their patchwork frontline, but one quality ball in and a big man in the box is sometimes all it takes. None of this fancy recognised striker stuff.

CHANCE!

James is in behind and he should probably go for goal himself but instead his squares for Sigurdsson/Iwobi and the two get in eachother's way.

Big opportunity missed.

Richarlison is on!

75' 

Everton need to get Richarlison on there is just absolutely no one to aim for inside the box. The thrill ride that this game was inside the first 15 minutes feels a lifetime ago.

73' 

Richarlison is getting ready...

71' 

Neves goes full James 2014 World Cup for Colombia and tees himself up for the most ambitious volley that flies over the bar. Would have been a Puskas winner.

  • Mason Holgate

Wolves corner, out by Mina. Back in, out by Iwobi.

The hosts on top now. Can they turn this around and complete the fightback.

61' 

This one has turned into more of a midfield battle than anything else. A few fouls creeping into the match now while neither side can seem to get a foothold in the game.

If I had to call it, I'd say Wolves were slightly edging the second half.

57' 

Neto releases some frustration and brings down James. He looks pretty apologetic though, perhaps he thought it was Godfrey.

55' 

Neto is finally back up after a somewhat dramatic spell on the ground. The free-kick is whipped in to Dendoncker who can't keep his header down.

53' 

Neto is down injured. A crowd has gathered.

He's having a right go at Godfrey too.

  • Abdoulaye Doucouré

49' 

Everton are playing with Sigurdsson and James up top in the absence of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.

Tosun and Richarlison are on the bench but Ancelotti has trusted his two midfielders to come up with the goods so far.

A gamble but they managed a goal inside six minutes. Digne looked their main attacking outlet in the first half to be honest.

HERE WE GO AGAIN

  • End of 1st Half
 

HALF TIME

All square at the break. A lightning start to the match saw Iwobi put the Toffees ahead, but a Wolves equaliser through Neves against the run of play put the hosts level and since then there's been little to separate the two sides.

45 minutes left to separate them.

45+1' 

Digne plays another spectacular ball into the box and wins his side a corner as the Wolves backline panic.

Mina gets a touch on the corner but there's too much on the flick and the ball heads well over.

43' 

Both sides look fairly set on getting into the half without falling behind and fewer risks are being taken in the final minutes of the first period.

Two to go!

40' 

Everton are four on four on the attack but James cannot quite get the ball forward through to Digne quick enough and the attack breaks down.

38' 

Ouch! Godfrey clashes Gibbs-White to slow down a potential Wolves counter-attack.

He's completely floored him.

There's a little too much on the pass from the free-kick and Semedo can't quite get there. Good idea though.

35' 

A Semedo ball in narrowly evades both Dendoncker and Silva. Dangerous stuff. Any sort of contact and that's a goal you'd think.

33' 

Wolves are on top now with all the possession. This game has had a fair few twists inside just the first half an hour. The hosts look unrecognisable since they equalised and are pressing from another.

30' 

Digne gives away a handball and he's pretty furious about it. There's not much he could've done about it but it's certainly smashed his elbow.

He swears loudly and even the fake crowd noise isn't going to hide that.

29' 

Patricio follows suit and does exactly the same by giving away a needless corner as he accidentally carries the ball behind.

Corner is well cleared.

27' 

Neves has a go from distance this time and Pickford gives away a needless corner because while the shot was drifting harmlessly wide the goalie has still pushed it behind.

Ancelotti turns away in frustration but Mina clears the corner anyway.

23' 

FIRST TIMER

23' 

Everton taking the sting out of Wolves' momentum here by just passing it around the back a bit. I wouldn't mind a calmer five minutes either to be honest.

21' 

CHANCE!

Another great chance here for Iwobi to double his tally and put Everton back in front.

James plays the winger in but he opts for a slow guided pass-type finish rather than a solid belt. Patricio collects all too easily.

17' 

SAVE!

Wolves smell blood but Pickford to the rescue!

Fabio Silva gets a snapshot on goal from near the penalty spot but Pickford does really well to get down to his right.

  • Rúben Neves

14' 

Digne gets another ball in but Neves does well to chest into the arms of Patricio. Very cool.

Up the other end Wolves win a corner after some smart work by Semedo who rinses Digne with a dummy.

12' 

Everton with all the momentum at the moment and have a real spring in their step. James is roaming around at will, spraying balls out wide, mainly over to Digne.

Wolves stuck in their own half. Can the Toffees kill them off early?

9' 

Digne is an electric full-back and a fantasy football must-have.

Wolves switched of their and Iwobi approached completely unmarked. They've made things hard for themselves early on here. Everton fourth as things stand.

Mina picks out Digne on the left as Everton patiently wait for an opening.

3' 

Everton look to make a quick start here and Digne is quickly in behind before squaring to an orange shirt.

Semedo clears but Digne is pressing high and putting the hosts under some early pressure.

Martin Atkinson gets us underway with an Everton kick-off.

Ancelotti has yet to get the best of Nuno after their clashes in La Liga some years ago. Another chance tonight!

IN THE TUNNEL

And on the pitch!

21:09 

INSPIRATION FROM BRAMMALL LANE

Wolve are only four unbeaten but they could take spirit from Sheffield United who have just now ended the longest winless run in Premier League history after beating Newcastle 1-0.

Three points closer to avoiding Derby's record of a league-low 11 points. I *think* Derby also beat Newcastle that season...

WOLVES PUSHING FOR EUROPE

Wolves, meanwhile, are winless in four and have really struggled since star man Jimenez was sidelined with a fractured skull a couple months back.

They are 13th, but their strong start to the season ahs given them a sturdy foundation and a win would send them 11th and above Arsenal. It's a tight old table.

20:41 

EVERTON FLYING HIGH

Everton were on a hot streak of four wins in a row until West Ham suckerpunched them last time out. They keep toying with the Champions League spots and even an outside look at top spot before slipping up when it matters most.

But make no mistake, this is still the Toffees best season in recent memory.

They've a game in hand on league leaders Liverpool and can go within one point of their Merseyside rivals tonight. A win will send them fourth, level on points with Leicester but just behind on goal difference.
