A debut brace for Richarlison nearly secured three points for Marco Silva's side against Wolves despite the Blues being reduced to ten men but a late Raul Jimenez header secured a point for the hosts. Even after Everton were reduced to 10 men, Wolves remained unusually conservative in attack, with their wing-backs dropping deep to form what was essentially a back 5 alongside the centre-backs.

10 man Everton (why is it 10 man and not 10 men?) take the lead at Wolves. Though this will not be an easy match by any means, Santo's side will feel confident they can get the right result this time if they work hard enough after stretching Everton at times today.
