Iwobi and Everton edged past Wolves in a five-goal thriller.

Richarlison put the Merseyside outfit in front after just 5 minutes into the match. A mix-up in the Wolve’s defense between Coady and Patricio is pounced on by Kean and the ball breaks kindly for Richarlison, who finished brilliantly first time.

The visitors responded almost immediately as some silky skills from Traore see him leave Digne for dead. His cross ricochets off Pickford and Coleman before an alert Saiss stabs the ball home. Nine minutes into the game, 1:1.

The game was shaping up to be a frantic affair as barely 3 minutes on Alex Iwobi puts the home side ahead scoring the second goal in five days.

74 minutes, Jimenez equalised for Wolves. Bennett’s long throw into the box is flicked on by Boly and Jimenez ghosts in at the far post to bravely head past Pickford.

The Toffees regain their lead with 10 minutes to go in the game. The Brazillian ghosts into the area to meet Digne’s cross, and brilliantly guide a header beyond the dive of Patricio.

Richarlison was the hero of the day as Everton won on the day. Full time at Goodison Park and it Everton 3 Wolves 2.
