Everton host Wolves on Wednesday night knowing that they need all 3 points if they are to keep their hopes of European football alive.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton take on Wolves knowing that nothing less than a victory is acceptable if they are to qualify for the Europa League next season.

The Toffees are currently in ninth place with 56 points, level with Leeds who have played a game more, a 2-0 victory against Southampton on Tuesday night.

Wolves come into the game in 12th place with 45 points, hoping to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Tottenham last time out.

That defeat meant Wolves can no longer secure a third successive top-half finish since their promotion to the Premier League in 2018.

Everton have now won only one of their last 11 league games at Goodison Park, with their home record only the 15th best in the division so far this season.
