Everton Wolves Premier League Tactical Analysis

Wolves cemented their grip on seventh place in the Premier League with a resounding 3-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park. Goals from Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker gave the Black Country side their first win away in the blue half of Merseyside since 1979. Andre Gomes restored parity for Marco Silva’s side midway through the first half, but it was Nuno Espirito Santo’s side who deservedly got the three goals and the all-important three points.

In this tactical analysis, we will focus on Wolves’ third goal – seeing as Neves’ goal was a penalty and Jimenez’s came from another Joao Moutinho set piece – Everton’s equaliser and a beautiful Belgian who continues to impress.

There were no shocks on either side. Perhaps the most surprising news was that Leighton Baines was passed fit and started for Everton. Rather unsurprisingly, he was substituted with the game still in the first half as Matt Doherty was getting the better of him with relative ease. This culminated in Wolves being awarded a penalty inside the first 10 minutes of the game and Neves beating Jordan Pickford from 12 yards.

I've got an unhealthy obsession with Wolves, Wolverhampton Wanderers, WWFC, whatever you fancy calling us today. When we win I'm on top of the world, when we lose I'm a nightmare to be around. It's been that way for as long as I can remember and people tell me that you're meant to grow out of it, however, I don't envisage that happening anytime soon. Anyway, I'm the lead analyst on here and while I try and keep my opinion out of my writing, sometimes it's too difficult to do that. I also use the terms 'we' and 'us' when talking about Wolves and I do try and remain impartial although it's debatable whether or not I do. In hindsight, I'm probably over critical of Wolves in the same manner that I'm over complimentary, so I guess it all balances itself out in the end. Grab yourself a cuppa and have a look around.
