Separated by just three points in last season’s Premier League, Everton and Wolves should be fairly evenly matched when they meet at Goodison Park on Sunday.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men narrowly pipped their opponents to a seventh-placed finish in their first season following promotion, securing a place in the Europa League in the process.

Everton vs Wolves latest odds

Unbeaten in nine league and European matches so far this campaign, they are priced at 5/2 (3.50) with bet365 to record back-to-back top-flight victories at this ground for the first time since 1979.

However, the Toffees have won each of their last five league matches in front of their own fans, and are 6/5 (2.20) favourites to make it six in a row by coming out on top.

The guests have drawn all three of their league games so far this campaign, and you can get odds of 9/4 (3.25) on them settling for a single point yet again in this one.

Everton vs Wolves team news

Jean-Philippe Gbamin has been ruled out for two months due to a thigh injury, although Fabian Delph is fit once again after making his debut in Wednesday’s 4-2 Carabao Cup win over Lincoln.

Ryan Bennett, Matt Doherty and Ruben Neves are all likely to return to Wolves' starting line-up, having been rested for Thursday's Europa League victory over Torino.

Everton vs Wolves preview

As well as five consecutive home wins, Marco Silva’s team has not conceded a single goal in six fixtures in their own back yard.

They will surely back themselves to hold strong once again when they take on a visiting attack that has scored just three goals in their last five league matches, and failed to find the net in four out of seven on the road.

Everton vs Wolves predictions

Considering Everton have scored just a single league goal so far themselves, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem like solid value on no more than one team finding the net when they take on a Wolves team that has only conceded twice in three league games this season.
