WOLVERHAMPTON Wanderers gave Everton their third consecutive Premier League loss after Max Kilman and Raul Jimenez led Wolves to a 2-1 victory at Molineux on Tuesday (2/11) early in the morning WIB.
Bruno Lage’s side took control of the first half thanks to Kilman’s first goal for Wolves and a brilliant finish from Jimenez.
Alex Iwobi slashed Everton in the second half, but Wolves managed to hold onto their lead to extend their Premier League unbeaten run to five games.

With four wins in five games unbeaten, Wolves moved up to seventh place in the standings while Everton fell to tenth.
After a crushing 52 loss at home in the previous game, that loss was part of a bad run for Rafael Benitez’s men.
Everton have won just one of their last six Premier League games, spoiling a strong start to the season as the Toffees have won four in a row.
Wolves started the game brilliantly and Ruben Neves’ shot from the edge of the box was saved beautifully by Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Pickford made another brilliant save blocking Francisco Trincao’s shot.
South Korea Wolves forward Hwang Hee-chan scored against Everton but the goal was disallowed by VAR for offside.
Wolves pressure finally paid off in the 28th minute, with Kilman defeating Everton defender Ben Godfrey and Michael Keane in the lead in a Rayan Ait-Nouri corner.
Four minutes later, Godfrey’s mistake had to be paid dearly by Everton after Jimenez’s backpass was stolen by Jimenez who scored Pickford’s goal.
It was the Mexican striker’s second goal of the season after returning to the game after a skull injury last season.
Everton just managed to narrow their delay in the 66th minute thanks to Iwobi’s action using the spewed ball from Godfrey’s kick.
The 2-1 score lasted until the end of the match. (AFP / OL-1)
