The Everton squad is getting stronger as the season progresses, and the return to training of Phil Jagielka is another bit of good news.

Wolves will be put under pressure and you have to ask yourselves whether they will be able to deal with the physical examination.

I think the answer is no, and I'm backing the home team to win.

Verdict: 2-0

After their horrendous start Everton are in the top half and are only 2 wins from third with a game in hand however i'm sure their realistic aim is the Europa League although like Villa they might find that a tough ask this season.

Wolves are beginning to be almost where i expect them to end up, thats in the bottom three and they have Villa at home next and Stoke away, both games they will do well to get anything out of.

Mystic Jarv predicts 2-0 to Everton

Everton 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Diniyar Bilyaletdinov slid home a dramatic late equaliser as Everton denied Wolves a priceless away win.

Wolves edged a tame first half but the game came to life after the interval.

Kevin Doyle put the visitors ahead when he raced on to huge clearance by keeper Wayne Hennessey and nonchalantly flicked the ball under Tim Howard.

But Bilyaletdinov levelled from Jo's cross in a frantic finale which also saw Wolves substitute Stefan Maierhofer sent off after two yellow cards.

Such a thrilling finish seemed highly unlikely after a tepid opening period short on goalmouth incident and excitement.

Despite coming off the back off a six-game unbeaten run, Everton made a sluggish start. They created just two chances in the opening period, the best of which fell to Tim Cahill after 15 minutes.

A long pass upfield fell to Louis Saha whose poor attempt to control the ball allowed Cahill to race through to the edge of the box, but he rushed his attempt and the ball sailed over the bar.

Saha was then unable to keep a headed chance down from a corner, and that was about as good as it got for the hosts.

Wolves, beaten 1-0 at home by previously winless Portsmouth in their last outing, could have been forgiven for packing the defence and settling for a point against an Everton side unbeaten in six.

But boss Mick McCarthy has faith in his young side's attacking prowess.

The fact he was able to include one of his star men Michael Kightly from the start for the first time this season was a huge boost.

And although Kightly failed to have an impact, their attacking threat was provided by the lively front pairing Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and record signing Doyle.

It was the first time McCarthy has been able to pair them in attack this term, and the duo were a constant menace to Everton's defence.

Doyle had an excellent curling effort tipped away by Howard, and the former Reading frontman saw another well-struck attempt bounce to safety after crashing into Ebanks-Blake.

But it was Ebanks-Blake, last season's top-scorer in the Championship, who came closest to breaking the deadlock just before the interval.

A flowing move saw Ronald Zubar pull the ball back and Ebanks-Blake's low shot drifted inches wide with Howard beaten.

Everton emerged after the break with all the signs of a side given a severe half-time talking-to.

Their positive intent was show with the introduction of striker Yakubu for full-back Tony Hibbert.

And within seconds of the kick-off Hennessey was forced into a fabulous save from Saha's downward header.

Bilyaletdinov was then denied by Hennessy who raced from his goal to block the winger's shot following a lovely crossfield pass by Leighton Baines.

And as the game completely opened up Saha once again tested Hennessey after a swift break and Yakubu drilled a fierce shot across goal.

But the breakthrough came at the other end against the run of play when Toffees skipper Joseph Yobo mis-timed his attempt to head clear Hennessey's punt forward and Doyle ran through and flicked a shot home under Howard with the outside of his right foot.

The strike was his third goal in four league games and looked certain to end Everton's unbeaten run.

But a swift break in the dying seconds rescued a point for David Moyes' men and left Wolves furious.

The visitors were screaming for a foul on Doyle in the build-up but referee Stuart Atwell played on.

Jo ran through on the left and his low cross was met first time by Bilyaletdinov whose cool strike beat Hennessey from close range.

There was still time for Maierhofer to see red for a second caution for blocking Howard.

Both sides had chances to win the match in injury-time, but Doyle's shot was saved by Howard and Baines blasted a shot just wide.
