Wolves found their touch once again, running riot over Everton at Molineux on Sunday afternoon to reclaim sixth place from Sheffield United.
Raul Jimenez slotted home a penalty at the stroke of half-time to hand Wolves a first-half lead for the first time since February. Leander Dendoncker then nodded in Pedro Neto’s free kick to make it two in the opening minute of the second period.
It was substitute Diogo Jota who drove more nails into the Toffees coffin, latching on to Ruben Neves’ long pass which he neatly connected into the net to seal his side’s first win in three matches with only 15 minutes remaining.
Ahead of kick-off, the Wolves and Everton players stood for a minutes silence in honour of Jack Charlton, the England 1966 World Cup winner who passed away earlier this week, aged 85.
