Wolverhampton hosts Everton in round 18 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 12th at Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton)
Wolverhampton finally broke its black streak. The Wolves hosted Crystal Palace on Friday. And Adama Traore, who scored the first goal in more than 30 matches, brought the hosts such a difficult victory. Still, the weakness of the attack of Nuno Espirito Santo’s team was manifested in that match. The coach lacks Raul Jimenez too much. The Mexican has already started light training, but he will not return soon. Not surprisingly, the club's bosses are going to acquire a striker in the January transfer window. After all, the results in December are very weak - four matches without victories and only five points scored in seven rounds. And nobody removes the task of at least repeating the results of previous seasons (7th place in the Premier League).

The Toffees have been alternating between victories and defeats lately. By the way, on Saturday, Everton had to spend much more energy in the cup match against Rotherham than expected. Doukure was able to score the winning goal after a pass from James Rodriguez only in added time (in the 93rd minute). Before that, the Liverpool club lost to the middle peasant, West Ham (who is coached by its ex-mentor, David Moyes), and there was a defeat to Manchester United in the League Cup quarterfinals in December. On the other hand, before a misfire with the Hammers, Everton won four times in a row in the championship (one more match, with Manchester City, was postponed due to the coronavirus), having beaten Chelsea, Leicester, and Arsenal. Thus, the Toffees showed in practice that they are worthy to fight for a return to the Champions League.
Wolverhampton prefers a pragmatic style of the game. Everton is not doing well in the attack either. Therefore, we think the upcoming match will not be rich in goals.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
