BBC sport pundit Chris Sutton has now predicted the outcome of tomorrow’s fixture as Everton take on Wolves.

Sutton insists that this is a ‘big game’ for both Everton and Wolves, with neither side yet to get off the mark in the Premier League this season.

Everton lost 1-0 at home to Fulham but an attacking display reinforced the belief that missed chances would be converted into goals once Dominic Calvert-Lewin was fit.

However, the 26-year-old went off injured 36 minutes into his return at Villa Park last week, as the Toffees slumped to a 4-0 defeat.

Predicting a 1-1 draw, Sutton states that Everton will ‘get off the mark’ for goals this weekend, but the points will be shared at full-time.

Writing for BBC Sport, Sutton said: “Everton played well against Fulham but ended up losing and then were awful against Aston Villa. This is a big game for both, because Wolves played well against Manchester United and then Brighton tore a strip off them.

Everton will get off the mark in terms of goals, they’ll hope Dominic Calvert Lewin is fit and I think they will score. But I also think Wolves will, they won this one late on last year.”

Everton have to take more than a point at Wolves, but goals do not look likely

Sean Dyche confirmed in yesterday’s press conference that he will be without DCL, as well as midfielder Alex Iwobi, who joins Dwight McNeil on the sidelines.

The Blues’ £15m centre-forward Neal Maupay has continued his torrid form in front of goal, but Dyche may be forced to continue with the Frenchman.

Dutch attacker Arnaut Danjuma, who is on loan from Villarreal, made an impact when he came on against Aston Villa and should be a better option, but he is yet to start a game this season.

New signing Youssef Chermiti, joining in a £15m deal from Sporting CP, is yet to make his debut for the club, but Dyche was refused to confirm when he would be available for selection during his press conference yesterday afternoon.
