Wolverhampton Wanderers boosted its hopes of qualifying for the Champions League with a 3-0 home win over Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.
Victory lifted Nuno Espirito Santo's side up to sixth in the standings -- four points behind fourth-placed Leicester City which plays Bournemouth later on Sunday.
Wolves took the lead in first-half stoppage time when Daniel Podence was fouled by Lucas Digne and Raul Jimenez maintained his 100% penalty conversion rate for the season to score his 16th goal of the league campaign.
Leander Dendoncker doubled the lead in the 46th minute when he directed a header past the outstretched arm of Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Diogo Jota made it 3-0 in the 74th minute after midfielder Ruben Neves found him with a pinpoint cross-field ball and the Portuguese forward chested it down before firing an emphatic half-volley past Pickford at the near post.
Everton remained in 11th place with three matches left in the season.
