Wolves v Everton team news - six doubts and three out

Team news and injury updates ahead of Wolves v Everton in the Premier League - including an update on Hwang Hee-chan.

Wolves face Everton at Molineux in the Premier League on Saturday (December 30). It's a short turnaround for Gary O'Neil's men who are on the search for their third successive win after beating Chelsea and Brentford.

Last time out against the Bee's in West London, Hwang Hee-Chan scored a brace after Mario Lemina had opened the scoring before Jeanricner Bellegarde added a fourth to ensure an emphatic victory on their travels. It was their first away win since beating Bournemouth in October.

Wolves following the result are 11th, and are level on points with big-spending Chelsea. A win against Everton could give Wolves the chance to go into the top-half going into the New Year. Everton come in to the game having lost 3-1 to champions Manchester City despite opening the scoring through Jack Harrison.

It was almost a perfect night for Wolves with their win against Brentford, but they do have a few players to attend to in terms of injuries and illness. Fabio Silva and Boubacar Traore were both missing, and the former has been linked with a move away from the club next month.

Everton are hoping for some players back, with the likes of Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ashley Young missing the last few games. Sean Dyche's side battled well against the champions and have responded positively to their 10-point deduction by going on a good run of form.

Wolves will have played three games in six days when their match with Everton is over, and it's been a proper test for their squad, but with two wins from their last two, look to have come out of it looking strong. Here's the latest injury and team news according to Premier Injuries ahead of Saturday's clash in the Midlands.
