Wolves are set to entertain Everton in the brand new 2018-19 Premier League season at the Molineux on Saturday afternoon

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side won the 2017-18 Championship last season and got an automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Wolves have been very active in the summer transfer window, with Nuno making some quality additions to the squad.

On the other hand, Everton have braced up for a new challenge under Marco Silva, who becomes the first manager to take charge of three different clubs in his first three Premier League seasons.

The Toffees have handed new signing Richarlison his debut after making the big money move from Watford.

The Merseyside club is yet to lose an opening Premier League fixture since 2011 when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to QPR at Goodison Park.

Both the managers met four times as head coaches during their time in charge of Portuguese sides Rio Ave and Estoril respectively, with each game won by the away team.

Wolves team to face Everton: Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Bony, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Costa, Jiminez, Jota.

Bench: Ruddy, Enobakhare, Gibbs-White, Saiss, Vinagre, Hause, Bonatini.

Everton team to face Wolves: Pickford, Coleman, Jagielka, Keane, Baines, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Richarlison, Tosun.

Bench: Stekelenburg, Holgate, Digne, Davies, Sandro, Niasse, Calvert-Lewin.
