Everton play against Wolves in a Premier League encounter at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Toffees will be looking to bounce back after tasting defeat at the hands of Aston Villa during their last league game.

Everton will be up against a Wolves side who will be looking to regain confidence after playing out three dull draws during their opening three Premier League fixtures of the season.

Fabian Delph could be set to be handed his Premier League debut for the Toffees after making a return to action during the Merseysiders’ 4-2 victory against Lincoln City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, as reported by BBC Sport. 

Everton do not have too many injury concerns as Jean-Philippe Gbamin is their only unavailable player.

The teams are pretty evenly matched on paper, however the Toffees could have a slight advantage as they will be playing at home.

In addition to this, Wolves also have Europa League football to focus on and this will be taking a toll on their players and could possibly impact their performances in the Premier League, just as it did to Burnley last season.

Marco Silva’s Everton side can however not afford to take this game lightly as they did lose to Wolves at Goodison Park last season.

Should they lose on Sunday, it will be the first time since 1960 that Wolves have recorded back-to-back away victories against the Toffees.

Everton have been in relatively good form recently at Goodison with the last time that they conceded at home being against Manchester City back in February.
