A LITTLE MORE HISTORY
Wolves 3 Everton 0 12th July 2020 in the Premier League at Molineux
Wolves started this game as they mean business in trying to get an early goal when Daniel Podence went down the right to test Jordan Pickford who saved it comfortably and smother the shot to stop Everton going behind.
Then Everton went up to the other end of the pitch and went and tested Rui Patricio in the Wolves goal only for him to save a shot made by Dominic Calvert Lewin.
Matt Doherty had a shot on target after playing a neat 1-2 with Leander Dendoncker but his shot on goal went wide of the mark.
After the drinks break Wolves had another chance at goal when Podence put in a perfectly placed ball towards Neto on the right-hand side only for Pickford & Digne to cut out the pass.
Neto had another opportunity at goal when got free from Michael Keane and Theo Walcott before firing low to the near post and Pickford was able to palm away the ball for a Wolves corner.
From the resulting corner Raul Jimenez did an overhead kick only for Pickford to do a comfortable save.
Then Wolves managed to take the lead before the end of the first half when Podence was causing problems in the Everton box by taking on three players only to be fouled by Digne who clipped him and the referee pointed to the spot, Jimenez then did his usual stuttered run up for the penalty to send Pickford the wrong way and made it 1-0 to Wolves keeping his record up of scoring everytime against them.
Half Time: Wolves 1 Everton 0
A matter of seconds of the second half of the Game Wolves managed to get another goal and this time it was by Leander Dendoncker who flicked in a header from a from a free kick on the right-hand side with the ball beyond Pickford.
Wolves then suffered an injury when Neto pulled up with an injury and then was assisted off the pitch to be replaced by Jota.
Jota then had a chance of extending the lead for Wolves when he was found by Neves to be one on one with Pickford when he tried only for him to stumble in the box.
Everton had rare chances in the game and didn’t trouble Patricio in the Wolves goal and Digne found some space on the left only for his shot went wide of the post.
Seconds after that shot by Everton Wolves managed to get a third goal when a Patricio pass found Jota who raced through goal to make it 3-0 to Wolves and hopefully keep the points for the hosts.
Wolves carried on trying to get more opportunities in the game with Traore with his pace but held on for the points and to become the first English club ever to win two competitive games in different Julys.
