On fire Nigeria International Alex Iwobi has continued his prowess as a goal netter for Everton despite all the barriers from the strong side Wolves in the super Sunday matchday at Goodison Park.
In a pulsating start to the game, Alex Iwobi – on his full Premier League debut for the Toffees – headed Everton back in front after Richarlison netted twice in a topsy-turvy encounter where Wolves came from behind twice but eventually lost 3-2 to the home team.
Wolves thought they had earned a point when Raul Jimenez bravely headed home in the 78th minute, but Richarlison showed his own aerial prowess two minutes later to rise above Willy Boly and give Everton all three points.
The Brazilian had put Everton in front in the fifth minute after converting from 16 yards following defensive miscommunication between Conor Coady and Rui Patricio.
Alex Iwobi scored his first Premier League goal for Everton, converting Gylfi Sigurdsson’s pin-point cross, after Romain Saiss had put Wolves level from close-range in a blistering opening 12 minutes.
Boly capped his side’s disappointing day by being dismissed in the dying seconds after a receiving second booking for a foul on the impressive Richarlison.
With only four Premier League games played, Everton climbed to fifth in the table, while Wolves remained in 17th and without a league win.
