Bruno Lage initially bet on José Sá, Rúben Neves and João Moutinho. On the bench were Podence, Trincão, Chiquinho, Toti Gomes and Fábio Silva, the first to come on after 15 minutes due to Hwang’s injury, Trincão and Fábio would also come. Nélson Semedo is injured. André Gomes, for the caramels, did not leave the bench.
Wolves arrived tired (they had three fewer rest days than their opponents) and Richarlison had the first chance of danger, in the 5th minute, with José Sá responding perfectly from the spot. Then ten strange minutes, the Korean Hwang trying three times to stay in the match after injuring his left hip. He was helped twice, three times he came back – already under a chorus of whistles from Everton supporters – but he ended up leaving, making way for Daniel Podence. Until the half-hour Everton were more pressing, but then Wolves loosened up and Jiménez was close to scoring in the 38th minute; two minutes later he played in an over the top bike shot.
Bruno Lage’s team entered the second half with the will to resolve and scored after a free kick: free kick from the left, the ball is cleared by the Everton defense on the right and Rúben Neves, the on his birthday, crosses the line for Coady to head in. . Richarlison still had a few chances but Kenny’s dismissal, within five minutes, ten minutes from time, ended Everton’s hopes.

Wolves reach 46 points in 7th place, Everton rack up the fourth defeat in a row and are caught by Watford, both with 22 points on the fold, despite being three games adrift.
