Michael Keane's second-half header secured a 2-1 victory at Molineux to send the visitors fourth in the Premier League.

"Ruben Neves" volley in the 14th minute canceled out Alex Iwobi" s first league goal for 17 months, in the sixth minute, in a lively start to the match at Molineux.

For this evening's game, Carlo Ancelotti will have to make do without influential striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has a hamstring injury.

The Nigerian global was on target in the sixth minute off an assist from Lucas Digne as he coolly finished Digne's pass into the bottom corner to give Carlo Ancelotti's side an early lead at the Molineux. "Iwobi did a fantastic performance and scored the first goal". Calvert-Lewin, 23, is the club's top scorer in the league with 11 goals this season two behind Liverpool's Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot.

Iwobi should have done better and it was the final chance of an entertaining first half, despite the game failing to build on the early drama.

In midfield, Everton deploy Abdoulaye Doucoure and Tom Davies, while Gylfi Sigurdsson also plays.

Wolves are yet to find the consistency which propelled them to Europe and, without Jimenez, look unlikely to challenge again this season after another lightweight display.

Ruben Neves equalised for Wolves before Michael Keane netted the victor for the Toffees.

Neves hit the bar from a free kick with five minutes to go.

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