Wolverhampton down Everton 3-0 to keep faint Champions League hopes alive

Diogo Jota of Wolverhampton Wanderers scores a goal to make it 3-0 during the Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton FC at Molineux on July 12, 2020 in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom.

Wolverhampton beat an uninspired Everton 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday to keep its faint hopes of a Champions League place alive.

After a slow start at Molineux, Wolves slowly took control and went in to the break 1-0 ahead after scoring in first-half injury time through Raul Jimenez.

The home side doubled its lead 46 seconds into the second half when Leander Dendoncker glanced in.

Diogo Jota made it 3-0 with 16 minutes remaining when he latched onto a brilliant pass and rifled low past a helpless Jordan Pickford in the Everton goal.

The win moves Wolves up to sixth place in the table and within three points of Manchester United in the last Champions League position.
