Wolves v Everton
Referee: Craig Pawson
Assistants: Richard West, Simon Beck
Fourth official: Simon Hooper
What a match in prospect at Molineux! Both clubs have spent big money across the summer, and Nuno Santo’s side won’t be a pushover.
Everton will be well advised to tread carefully in this opener because with the likes of Joao Moutinho, Diego Jota and Raul Jimenez on board, the gold and blacks have plenty of goals in them.

Buoyed by a partisan home crowd, Wolves’ only concern will be leaving themselves open at the back.
Craig Pawson continues to get the little things right, making for a better all-round contribution. Well respected amongst his peers and players, it will be interesting to see how the winners of the Championship take to his style of officiating.
If the hosts don’t get things all their own way, Pawson and his colleagues will have a baptism of fire in the Midlands.
