Matchday 10 is almost upon us and after having a weekend of action that started on Friday and ended with Liverpool’s annihilation of Manchester United, this upcoming group of Premier League fixtures will see the schedule close on Monday night instead.
Indeed, fans will be treated to a rather interesting clash in England’s top division as they will be taken to Molineux where they will be able to see Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Everton for the spoils in front of the lights.
The game promises to be an entertaining spectacle as both football clubs appear to be rather similar in regards to how the 21/22 season has gone so far, however it would seem home advantage could play a role as Wolves are priced at 6/5 and slight favourites on Betway Sportsbook to take all three points.
The Old Gold have improved significantly under Bruno Lage in recent games as they have finally managed to find their shooting boots in front of goal. They had once found it difficult to convert their chances but now it seems Hwang Hee-chan has started to adapt and show why the club decided to sign him on a season-long loan with the option to buy.
The South Korean has three goals in his last three Premier League games for Wolves and looks deadly when in the box, which is something that Everton are going to clearly have to keep an eye on.
As a result, he has helped Wolves to build on a slow start and put them on a run of four unbeaten games in England’s top flight, however Everton are on a bit of a slippery slope at the moment.
The Toffees had started the campaign in fine fashion as Rafa Benitez started life at Goodison Park with his own four-game unbeaten run, however just one win and one draw in their next five games has seen a cause for concern breed.
Indeed, this will have been a long week for Everton, as well, as they were thumped in front of their own fans at the weekend when they hosted Watford. Former player, Josh King, played a real nightmare on them the weekend before Halloween as well, as he netted a hat-trick at the club where he was rarely given an opportunity to shine under Carlo Ancelotti.
Both teams will want to go for the win on Monday night and with both perhaps feeling that they still have something to prove, it could be an excellent encounter.
