Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Everton - Football Match Report

A corner was only half cleared, and the ball made its way back into the box, with Ruben Neves volleying in the equaliser.

Everton came into the match knowing that a win would see them climb into the Champions League slots and that is exactly what they did - with Alex Iwobi getting the Toffees off to the ideal start.

Victory was sealed for the visitors in the 77th minute after Michael Keane powered home a brilliant header thanks to a cross from Andre Gomes.

Wolves have now won just once in eight league games since Raul Jimenez fractured his skull at the end of November and they dropped to 14th.

This despite being deprived of 14-goal top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who was out with a hamstring injury, and fellow forward Richarlison.

Yerry Mina's failure to clear Pedro Neto's corner kick allowed Rayan Ait-Nouri to turn the ball back in the danger area, where the Portugal worldwide volleyed past Jordan Pickford from close range. "Iwobi did a fantastic performance and scored the first goal".

Two well-matched teams struggled to find the same fluency after the break, though, although Leander Dendoncker headed over Joao Moutinho's free-kick.

Richarlison was introduced to give the visitors some impetus but it was Keane who grabbed the victor with 13 minutes remaining.

Neves' free-kick then clipped the bar with five minutes to go but Wolves could not find a leveller.
