Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo will head into Saturday’s trip to Everton with no new injury worries, according to BBC Sport.

The Wolves head coach will also be boosted by the return of Willy Boly, who is available for selection following a three-match suspension after being sent-off in their 3-0 loss to Manchester City.

Despite heading into this fixture with a fully fit squad, Santo is bringing his men to a ground where they have a terrible record.

Wolves have only won at Goodison Park once in their last 14 visits, and that victory came way back in 1979 when the two sides met in the top flight.

The key to breaking that curse could lie at the feet of Raul Jimenez, as the striker has been directly involved in 13 goals this season, racking up eight goals and five assists.

If Everton manage to contain the Mexican striker, Wolves can also turn to Diogo Jota as the Portuguese midfielder has two assists and five goals to his name in his last six appearances.

It has been a brilliant season for Santo’s side, as they sit in seventh place and are set to set a new club record this season.

One more Wolves victory will take their tally to 11 and equal their record for most Premier League wins in a season, and they have 14 games remaining to reach that milestone.

With their opponents sat just two points behind them, Wolves will be hoping to go one better than their opening day draw against Everton and get the better of the Merseyside outfit this time out.
