Wolverhampton will challenge Everton on the road at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday at Goodison Park.

Two expansive teams managed by Portuguese managers went toe-to-toe in a match that lived up to the pre-match hype and delivered five goals, the decisive one coming 10 minutes from time after Raul Jiminez had brought the visitors level five minutes ealier.

Marco Silva gave a start to Moise Kean, Fabian Delph and Alex Iwobi as Everton looked for a turn in fortunes, while Patrick Cutrone made his first start for Wolves in place of Diogo Jota.

But Everton and Richarlison were not to be denied as the Brazilian found the victor 10 minutes from time.

Richarlison re-stamped their dominance on 80 minutes as the Brazilian connected with Lucas Digne's inch-perfect cross to head beyond Patricio for his second of the day.

In addition to this, Wolves also have Europa League football to focus on and this will be taking a toll on their players and could possibly impact their performances in the Premier League, just as it did to Burnley last season.

Raul Jimenez's courageous header on 75 minutes earned him a boot to the face from Lucas Digne and the Wolves equaliser. The Frenchman powered his way towards the corner flag where his marker assumed there was little danger but a deep cross invited a towering jump by Richarlison who steered the ball beyond the despairing glove of the keeper.

Should they lose on Sunday, it will be the first time since 1960 that Wolves have recorded back-to-back away victories against the Toffees.

Everton came up short against Aston Villa, falling 0-2.
