Saturday’s Premier League action concludes at Molinuex where Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Everton.

Nuno Espirito Santo guided Wolves to the Championship title last term, finishing nine points clear of second place Cardiff City and eleven ahead of eventual play-off winners Fulham who finished third.

The midlands club are certainly not back in the big time merely to make up the numbers with bookmakers making them almost as likely to finish in the top six than to be relegated.

There are ten new faces at the club, and a whole host of them are in line for their debuts this weekend though Adama Traore and Leander Dendoncker are unlikely to feature after only arriving in the last forty-eight hours.

Raul Jimenez is favourite to open the scoring at 5.8 (24/5) with Unibet ahead of 6.5 (11/2) chance Leo Bonatini.

The home win can be backed at 2.4 (7/5) with Betfair with the visitors 3.3 (40/17) with Unibet while the draw is available at the same price with the same firm.

The Toffees wrote the headlines on deadline day after finalising deals for Barcelona duo Yerry Mina and Andre Gomes and Brazil international Bernard.

Saturday’s game may come to soon for those three though Lucas Digne and Richalison could make their debuts as the Toffees look to build on last season’s eighth place finish.

Cenk Tosun is priced at 5.5 (11/2) to get the first goal of the game with Theo Walcott widely available at 10.0 (9/1).

It’s over six years since these sides last faced each other and that games finished goalless while you must go back to May 2004 for Wolves’ last victory in this fixture.

Everton won 2-1 when the sides last met on Merseyside and both of their goalscorers on that day – Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka – remain at the club.

With so much new talent on show you may fancy goals this time around and Sky Bet offer 4.0 (3/1) for there to be four or more scored here while the same firm offer 2.0 (1/1) for their to be a goal scored in both halves.
