Big expectation from Wolves
Wolves returned to the top flight for the first time since the 2011-12 campaign, and expectations are high from them after they won the Championship with ease last season, claiming 99 points.
They spent big in the summer on eight signings, including on established superstars like Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho, and Nuno Santo will be pleased with the fighting spirit shown by his players against Everton.
Ruben Neves was one of the best players in the Championship last season, and he impressed on the opening day again by scoring the opening goal for Wolves in the 44th minute.
The Portuguese looked composed on the ball, and showed his class during the game. He had 111 touches on the ball and his 93 passes was more than any other player on the pitch.
