That's all for now. Goodbye.
Wolves are up into sixth place, while Everton remain 11th. Ancelotti's side are winless in three, and put in an abject display today.
Wolves have hammered Everton, to keep their hopes of possibly securing a Champions League place alive. Jimenez's penalty in the first half got them started, with Dendoncker heading in a second after the break – Jota wrapping up the result late on. 
90' + 2' There will be four minutes of added time.
90' Wolves get through again, with Traore bursting down the right and driving in a cross. It’s a brilliant one, but Coleman manages to get a block on it.
87' OFF THE BAR! Jota gets the better of Davies with ease, and proceeds to hammer a low cross into the six-yard box. Traore meets it, but slams his effort against the woodwork.
85' Given Everton have no changes left, Digne will have to carry on.
83' Digne is down receiving treatment for what could be cramp, though he is clutching his hamstring.
81' Wolves have been able to treat this match like a training game since the start of the second half, when Dendoncker put them 2-0 up. Everton have been totally devoid of ideas throughout.
João Moutinho
R. Jiménez
78' A change for Wolves. Jimenez has been replaced by Moutinho.
76' Dendoncker has two goals in his last four Premier League games – he only scored twice in his first 31 this season before this.
Rúben Neves
74' The pass from Neves was exceptional, with Jota keeping his cool to apply the finish.
Diogo Jota
74' GOOOOAAALLL!!! WOLVES HAVE ANOTHER!  A brilliant pass from Neves takes Everton’s defence out of the game, with Jota racing through and, this time, he makes no mistake, drilling a finish beyond Pickford, who should have done better.
73' Wide! Keane gets in for Everton, but drags his finish across the face of goal.
Adama Traoré
Daniel Podence
70' Here is that change for Wolves. Podence is off, with Traore coming on. 
68' With Everton building up some pressure, Wolves are about to make another change, with the rapid Traore preparing to come on.
67' Iwobi cuts inside from the right and drills a neat ball to Digne, whose cross is deflected out to the edge of the box. Sigurdsson meets it, but Neves blocks the shot.
65' CHANCE! Everton get caught on the break – Jota racing through behind Davies, who had tried to play offside. The forward is through one-on-one, but hesitates, giving Pickford the chance to make the save, with Jimenez unable to apply the finish on the rebound.
64' A sliced clearance gives Everton the chance to make some headway, with Calvert-Lewin finding Digne, who picks out Coleman. The full-back directs a header goalwards, but it is blocked at the near post.
M. Kean
63' A final change for Everton. Richarlison, who has struggled to get involved at all today, makes way for Kean.
62' CLOSE! Pickford makes another terrible error. Podence got in behind Digne so easily, before hammering a strike at goal. It is covered by Pickford at the near post, yet he lets it slip through his grasp, and he only just manages to recover before it goes over the line.
60' Only Mo Salah, with 10, has more Premier League goals in 2020 than Jimenez, who now has eight to his name after that earlier penalty.
M. Keane
Yellow Card
58' Keane goes into the book, having clattered into Jimenez from behind.
Diogo Jota
Pedro Neto
56' Neto cannot continue, and he has been replaced by Jota.
A. Iwobi
A. Gordon
56' Substitution Anthony Gordon Alex Iwobi
T. Walcott
56' Gordon has also made way for the visitors, with Bernard replacing the youngster.
54' Neto has gone down clutching his knee, and is receiving treatment.
53' Everton work it forward, but there is no urgency about their play. Coleman eventually drops in a cross, but Patricio is able to collect it with ease.
51' Dendoncker has two goals in his last four Premier League games – he only scored twice in his first 31 this season before this.
49' Everton’s hopes of getting anything out of this match look bleak. The Toffees have offered nothing going forward and look defensively fragile. For Ancelotti, it seems now to be a case of limping on to the end of the season, with his side in need of several reinforcements in the transfer window.
Pedro Neto
46' Neto gets the assist, having whipped in a wonderful free-kick, but the Everton defending left a lot to be desired.
L. Dendoncker
46' GOOOOAAALLLL!!! WOLVES LEAD 2-0! A nightmare start for Branthwaite, who lets Dendoncker loose from a free-kick, with the Belgian flicking a header beyond Pickford.
46' KICK-OFF! Wolves get proceedings back underway.
J. Branthwaite
L. Baines
46' A change for Everton. Branthwaite is on for his Everton debut, replacing Baines, which will likely mean a switch back to 4-4-2.
Ancelotti’s switch in system has not helped Everton much, with the Toffees’ sluggish midfield a major issue. Wolves, meanwhile, now have the platform to push on. As it stands, they’re heading back into the top six.
A first-half of few chances comes to a close with Wolves having taken the lead through Jimenez’s coolly taken penalty, following a foul on Podence by Digne. The hosts have been well on top, with Everton offering little attacking threat.
R. Jiménez
Penalty Goal
45' + 2' GOAL! Cool from Jimenez, who sends Pickford down to his left and plants a fine finish into the other corner. It’s 1-0 to Wolves.
45' + 1' PENALTY TO WOLVES! Right on the stroke of half-time, Wolves have the chance to take the lead. Podence turns away and draws a tackle from Digne. It did not appear the France international made much contact, but the spot-kick is awarded.
45' + 1' There will be a minimum of two minutes stoppage time before half-time.
45' Keane plays a ball over the top, with Calvert-Lewin looking to latch onto it, but he is marshalled by Coady, who wins possession with ease.
43' Richarlison scored his 30th Premier League goal last time out, becoming the fifth Brazilian to reach this figure after Roberto Firmino (56), Philippe Coutinho (41), Gabriel Jesus (38) and Willian (37). However, Everton's talisman has had little support or service so far today.
40' Wolves have had complete control, though bar Podence’s strike and the ambitious effort from Jimenez, they have not tested Everton too much. That being said, the visitors have offered nothing of note going forward, with Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin mere spectators.
38' Pickford makes a complete mess of collecting a cross from Neto, with the England goalkeeper dropping the ball. Fortunately for him, it is at the feet of Keane, who clears Everton’s lines.
36' There is little pressure on Wolves when they forge attacks, especially from Everton’s midfield. It has been a problem area for Ancelotti, and neither Davies or Sigurdsson have managed to have any impact so far.
33' Davies attempts to pick out either Baines or Richarlison with a long pass, yet the youngster hits his effort straight through the pair of them.
S. Coleman
Y. Mina
31' Mina is off, with Coleman coming on. Keane will likely move to the centre of defence.
31' Mina, who sustained that injury while passing the ball out from the back, will not be able to carry on.
29' An injury worry for Everton, who are already short at numbers at the back, with Mina down clutching his right thigh.
27' CLOSE! Jimenez sets himself with two touches before attempting a bicycle kick. He makes good contact, but Pickford had read it and gets down to his right to make the save.
26' SAVE! Wolves break through Everton’s defence with a neat move – Podence easily getting beyond Keane with some clever footwork. The former Olympiacos man gets a low shot off, but Pickford reacts sharply to parry it wide at the near post.
24' Wolves are winless in their last four Premier League home games against Everton, since a 2-1 win in May 2004.
22' We’ve reached the game’s first drinks break.
L. Digne
Yellow Card
19' Digne receives the first booking of the game, having dragged back on Neto to prevent a Wolves counter-attack.
18' Away from home, Everton have won just two of their last seven Premier League games, with both victories coming against sides in the relegation zone. Indeed, against sides starting the day in the top half, Everton have won just three of their last 31 Premier League away games.
16' A neat turn from Gordon opens up space for Everton, with Sigurdsson eventually feeding Walcott, whose cross is a good one but just evades a blue shirt. Baines and Digne keep it alive, finding Gordon, but his shot is blocked.
14' Everton youngster Gordon was a bright spark against both Spurs and Southampton, though he has failed to get himself involved so far today. He is playing in a preferred central role, justbehind a front two of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin.
12' Wolves take the corner short, with Neto playing it to Podence. The forward attempts a one-two, but Davies reads it and stewards it out for a corner.
11' Everton manage to sustain a spell of possession, only for a long ball from Keane to hand it back to Wolves. The hosts ease their way into the opposition’s half, though Everton are staying compact in their defensive third, with Digne eventually conceding a corner.
9' Everton are looking to complete their first league double over Wolves since the 1975-76 campaign, following their 3-2 win at Goodison Park in September.
7' Doherty combines with Jimenez and gets beyond Everton’s midfield with what would have been far too much ease for Ancelotti’s liking. The wing-back gets off a shot from the edge of the area but, thankfully for the visitors, drags it well wide.
6' It appears Digne is actually playing in Everton’s back three alongside Mina and Keane, with Baines taking up the position of left wing-back – Walcott, playing in the 500th match of his club career – offering the width on the other side.
4' A first sighting of goal for Wolves, as they work a patient move from one side to the other – Saiss eventually feeding Podence, whose low shot is saved easily by Pickford. Everton respond brightly, Walcott getting down the right and supplying a pass for Calvert-Lewin, but his effort does not trouble Patricio.
3' Everton have mainly played in a 4-4-2 shape under Ancelotti, but the Italian has switched his tactics today. The Toffees looked stagnant against Southampton and Tottenham, and perhaps this tweak in shape will help spark some more creativity.
1' KICK-OFF! After a moment of silence in remembrance of Jack Charlton, Everton get proceedings underway.
The teams are making their way out at Molineux, with kick-off coming next.
Three changes in terms of personnel for Everton, with Baines, Sigurdsson and Walcott coming in for Coleman, Gomes – who is injured – and Iwobi respectively. However, Ancelotti has changed the shape of his side, possibly in an attempt to match up with Wolves.
EVERTON SUBSTITUTES: Alex Iwobi, Djibril Sidibe, Bernard, Maarten Stekelenburg, Seamus Coleman, Moise Kean, Joao Virgini, Jarrad Branthwaite, Beni Baningime.
EVERTON (3-5-2): Jordan Pickford; Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Leighton Baines; Theo Walcott, Tom Davies, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Anthony Gordon, Lucas Digne; Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
Three changes in total for Wolves, with Dendoncker, Neto and Podence – making his full Premier League debut – coming in.
WOLVES SUBSTITUTES: Bruno Jordan, Morgan Gibbs-White, Diogo Jota, John Ruddy, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Vinagre, Adama Traore, Maximilian Kilman, Oskar Buur.
WOLVES (3-4-3): Rui Patricio; Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Matt Doherty, Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker, Jonny; Pedro Neto, Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence.
Everton, meanwhile, are entrenched in mid-table. Having lost and drawn their last two matches, it seems a European push is a bit too much of an ask for the Toffees, who have had another frustrating season despite Carlo Ancelotti taking over as manager.
Two successive defeats have rather stalled Wolves’ progress up the table, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side sitting seventh. A win today, however, would take them above Sheffield United and back into the top six.
