Everton will face off against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Monday night as they try to secure all three points on their travels. The Toffees suffered a 5-2 defeat at the hands of Watford in their last outing, so they will be desperate to pick up a win versus Wolves.
Rafael Benitez will opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to bring Richarlison back for this game. However, the Spanish head coach will have to do without Dominic Calvert-Lewin (quadriceps injury) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot injury) in this Premier League clash.
4-2-3-1 Everton Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Jordan Pickford will function in goal for the Toffees despite shipping in five goals versus the Hornets in his last league start. Michael Keane will resume his centre-back partnership with Ben Godfrey at the heart of the Everton backline as they hope to keep things solid at the back this Monday night.
Seamus Coleman will resume his duties at right-back while Lucas Digne features on the other side as the left-back. Benitez will give both his full-backs a chance to express themselves in the final third so that they can orchestrate enough goal-scoring chances for their teammates up top.
Yerry Mina is unlikely to be risked in this game but Mason Holgate will be available for selection on the bench as he provides cover for the defensive positions.
Allan will anchor the midfield along with Tom Davies as they focus on disrupting the opposition’s rhythm in the game at the centre of the park. Davies got his name on the scoresheet versus the Hornets, so he will head into this contest full of confidence and eager to prove his worth at the heart of Benitez’s midfield.
The talented trio of Anthony Gordon, Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend will operate just ahead of them as part of the Toffees attack. Both Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes are probably going to miss this clash but Benitez will have Alex Iwobi on his bench and could use him in the latter stages of the game if needed.
Richarlison will get the nod to lead the line for the Merseyside outfit up top in the injury absence of Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The Brazilian forward will have to find ways to cause a few problems for the Wolves centre-backs on Monday night.
