Wolves keep Champions League dream alive with Everton thumping

Wolves kept their hopes of playing in the Champions League next season alive after a comprehensive 3-0 win over Everton on Sunday afternoon. 

Raul Jimenez gave Wolves the opener with his 25th strike of the season from the spot on the 42nd minute after Lucas Digne jumped into a tackle in the box.

Nuno Espirito's men doubled their lead a minute after the restart, this time Leander Dendoncker getting to the end of a Pedro Neto free-kick to beautifully head into the bottom left corner from the edge of the six-yard box. 

Despite the visitors fighting to equalize, the hosts added a third and their last on the 74th minute as Ruben Neves teed up Diogo Jota inside the box for an easy roll into the bottom left corner and past Jordan Pickford for a 3-0 lead.

Overall, it was a perfect win for Wolves, who had too much energy and ability against a dismal Everton, who are now winless in their last three matches. 

Espirito's men moved to sixth in the table and are confident now of playing in the Europa League next sesason, even though they have a chance of making it into the Champions League

They next play away to Burnley on Wednesday night, before hosting Crystal Palace on Monday 22nd.

A visit to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on the last day of the season will be their last match.
