Everton vs Wolves preview

Everton are without Mason Holgate and James Garner through injury, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Andros Townsend are doubts for this match.

Wolves have more fitness issues to contend with than their opponents as Chiquinho, Pedro Neto and Sasa Kalajdzic are all still out.

Jonny is expected to miss this match, too, and Diego Costa is suspended.

All that leaves the visitors with a mountain to climb in this game as they absolutely must start picking up points.
