Boyhood Liverpool supporter ConorCoady was delighted that he scored the only goal of the game for Wolverhampton Wanderers who were able to secure a 1-0 away win over relegation-threatened Everton as a result. England international Coady provided the finishing touch to the cross from Ruben Neves in the first half via a header and it turned out to be the only goal of the game as Wolves preserved the slim advantage until the end of the game.
Wolves have had a very good season under new manager Bruno Lage who was the successor to compatriot NunoEspirito Santo at the club. Lage started his managerial reign with three successive league defeats in the opening weeks of the season before he turned things around in remarkable style to put Wolves alongside the big boys namely Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the fight for a place in the top four on the Premier League table.
Lage and his Wolves would have even been in a better position than they are at the moment if they had not suffered three successive league defeats to Arsenal (away), West Ham United (away) and Crystal Palace (home) in the last few weeks before the run came to an end in an emphatic fashion on Thursday thanks to the 4-0 home win over Watford who are in the relegation zone.
The away win over Everton thanks to the third goal of the season from England player Coady then made it two straight wins for Wolves in the league thus maintaining their five-point deficit to Arsenal in fourth spot. Arsenal have 51 points, while Wolves have 46 points.
