Charlie Nicholas has heaped praise on Wolves following their 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday afternoon. 

The Midlands club opened up a four point lead in seventh position courtesy of goals from Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez, and Leander Dendoncker at Goodison Park.

Speaking on Soccer Saturday (Sky Sports News, Saturday February 2nd, 12pm), Nicholas said: “They’re different class.

“I know they went off the boil around December time, and there were three or four weeks where you thought ‘here’s a big slip coming’ but what they did today really really well, not just get themselves in front with a very cool penalty from Neves, but when they went back to 1-1 they got a little bit physical.

“They won the physical contest and then technically they could keep the ball, good passing, and you talk about rhythm and fluency, they have that. They can go short, they can go long, and they’ve got pace and movement up front, and they’ve got goals in Jimenez.

“This could have been a lot more for Wolves. Very, very impressive.”


Wolves were brilliant again today, and continue to show that they are a side of real pedigree who are ready made for European football. Admittedly, Everton weren’t at the races, and but for briefly levelling via Andre Gomes they never looked like laying a glove on their visitors, but that shouldn’t detract from Wolves’ display or the job that Nuno has done in the Midlands. Not only are Wanderers storming the race for the Europa League, but they are doing it with style and plenty of attacking verve. It’s hard to imagine that this time last year they were in the second tier, and of they continue to progress at the rate that they are, they could be challenging for a Champions League spot in the next couple of seasons. Ordinarily that would be a ridiculous claim, but this is an exceptional side with real ambition, and Wolves are going to be around for a long time to come.
