With no striker arriving late on for Wolverhampton Wanderers in January’s deadline day, it was all eyes to today’s trip to Goodison Park to face Everton in the Premier League.
A bright start from head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s side saw Ruben Neves open the scoring seven minutes in as he converted the penalty that came our way and although the hosts responded with a goal of their own midway through the first period, Raul Jimenez restored our advantage in the 45th minute.
Things got better for Wolves in the second half as Leander Dendoncker added a third shortly after the hour mark in the game to make it 3-1 and although that’s where the scoring ended, it was a pretty comfortable victory all things considered.
A good end to a reasonable week with Jonny signing his permanent deal as we look further to the future.
Speaking to the BBC following the fulltime whistle, a delighted Santo explained.
“We are proud of the work we did. We were better in the first half and in the second half both teams were organised. It requires a lot of shape and being compact but when we achieved the third goal the game was done for us. Everton are a very good team, good manager. It’s tough to come here with atmosphere but we will go game by game, this is the approach we have. There is a long way to go and we can improve. We are not looking at the table until we go again.”
