Four Everton players walking selection tightrope ahead of Wolves clash after abject Watford loss
Rafa Benitez will surely ring the changes after the Toffees’ sobering defeat.

They say that time is a great healer.
However, Everton fans will still understandably be seething after what they witnessed at Goodison Park on Saturday.
The Toffees capitulated against Watford, having twice led to fall to a meek 5-2 loss.
Inquests will be held into why Everton crumbled at Finch Farm this week.
Here are the four players mainly at risk of losing their starting spot.
Evertonians' patience is beginning to wear thin with the striker.
When leaving the pitch at full-time on Saturday, boos towards Rondon were louder than any other player.
Since arriving on transfer deadline day, things haven't worked out for the Venezuela international so far.
Granted, he came into the starting XI far sooner than expected due to Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin suffering injuries.
But Rondon's now had seven games to build up match sharpness and there's been little improvement.
In his past four games, the ex-Newcastle forward has had just eight shots on goal and fired a solitary effort on target.
Richarlison came off the bench to score in just three minutes against Watford and he would be the obvious replacement.
Supporters groaned how it was Anthony Gordon who made way for the Brazilian rather than Rondon.
Benitez could look to have both in his team and omit Rondon.
Before the start of the season, many fans concurred that the England international was Everton's best centre-back.
However, Godfrey has struggled to hit the heights he displayed during his maiden campaign at Goodison.
A bad dose of Covid-19 has been a factor but the defender's performances have left wanting.
Godfrey lacks a real aerial presence and appeared to be outjumped for Juraj Kucka's equalising header. He was also part of the horrific defending for the Hornets' fourth goal.
If Yerry Mina is recovered from a hamstring problem in time to face Wolves, he's almost certainly come back into the side. It means Godfrey is at risk.
The other centre-half who Mina could come in for is Michael Keane.
He was equally as poor as Godfrey throughout the clash despite assisting Richarlison's goal.
Keane struggled to keep tabs on Josh King, who cleverly played off his former Toffees team-mate's shoulder throughout, and notched himself a hat-trick.
Not only that but Keane also couldn't make his presence felt in the rearguard.
After errors earlier in the season against Southampton and Leeds, they could come into Benitez's decision-making.
The Everton boss could well jettison both of his central defenders and select Mason Holgate to play alongside Mina.
It seemed like it would be a perfect afternoon for the academy graduate when he bundled home Everton's breakthrough after just three minutes.
Replacing the injured Abdoulaye Doucoure, Davies displayed excellent determination to meet Demarai Gray's cross and finish.
However, Davies offered little protection to the back four in the second half.
In a two-man midfield, he didn't have the same physical presence as Doucoure, who's hard to replace.
Allan also struggled but he's been influential for the majority of the season and will remain in the team.
If Benitez wants to continue with a two-man midfield then Jean-Philippe Gbamin could come into his thinking. The Ivory Coast international has only played five times since arriving more than two years ago, however.
Yet Benitez might be tempted to bolster his engine room with another body.
In that case, Andre Gomes - who's back fit after a calf injury - is an option and Rondon could drop out.
