Wolves eased past Everton to register their third win on the bounce in just six very happy days!

After being handed a 10 point deduction for breaking the Financial Fair Play rules, Everton had previously put on a stunning run themselves, regaining all 10 of those lost points back beating the likes of Newcastle and Chelsea.

However, they hit a bit of a turmoil prior to their Molineux trip, losing two on the trot against Tottenham and Manchester City.

Wolves, on the other hand were coming off two wins in succession, and looked to continue their purple patch of form.

Let’s take a look at what we learnt from this game.


1. Cunha delight

Having signed just around a year to the date, Matheus Cunha has shown plenty of signs of becoming an exciting talent in the Old Gold.

The record signing scored and assisted in a game where he looked very sharp and composed on the ball. The way he drifts past players is a joy to watch, and his playing style is one that gives the fans excitement whenever he is on the ball.

This now brings the Brazilian to six goals and five assists for the season, on track for his best return in his career. May his rich reign of form go on!


2. National duties

Hwang Hee Chan, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Boubacar Traore will be leaving the squad shortly to join up with their nationalities ahead of Afcon and the Asia cup.

This will be a tough period for Wolves, losing several important players. But, as Gary O’Neil said in his press conference, it gives us an opportunity to see how the group can cope without them and who can step up.

Not to mention there is the return of Pedro Neto to look forward to after his return from the bench here, and with Wolves expected to make some movement in the January transfer market, we should be able to perform to the standards that have been set in recent performances.


3. Show Man City the money!

Tommy Doyle joined Wolves on loan with an option to buy somewhere in the region of £5million in the summer. 

And I think that judging off his cameos so far and his performance against Everton, that’s an option well worth taking up. His ability to read the game is great, and will only get better with time and more experience. Not to mention his passing which is one of the best in the squad, if not the best.

For what he may be able to give us in the future, £5million is a steal and would strengthen the squad going forwards.


4. Goalscoring troubles solved?

In the 2022/23 season, Wolves scored a total of 31 goals. This season, 20 games in, we are just one goal off equalling this tally, scoring 30. Since O’Neil has come in, we have only failed to score in two fixtures. 

Against Brentford, Hee Chan Hwang became just the third player in Wolves’ history to score 10 or more goals in a season, and, with Cunha on track to do the same, we have found some genuine goal threats going forward at last.

For so long we have struggled to find the back of net on a regular basis, and it’s so refreshing to watch a Wolves team that are deadly going forward. Again, let’s hope that form goes on!


5. Dare to dream?

Wolves are currently sat in 11th, just three points off a European spot. Is it too early to dream? And is it a stretch to believe? 

The togetherness that we have in the squad is at its best, and that gives us more of a chance than ever. But we have to remember what this season is meant to be. The club have been vocal about this season being a transitional one, and no one would have been able to predict the position we are in today.

I think if we can have a good January window, then let’s see how far we can go in the second half of the season. But, for now let’s just enjoy the performances and the goals and see how it goes over the next couple of months.
