(Reuters) - WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 2 EVERTON 2
Promoted Wolves needed an 80th-minute equaliser from Mexican forward Raul Jimenez to secure a 2-2 draw at home to 10-man Everton at Molineux on Saturday.
Everton’s new Brazilian signing Richarlison scored twice on his Premier League debut for the club but Marco Silva’s side had to settle for a point.
The former Watford forward, who moved to Everton for 40 million pounds ($51 million) in July, slotted home from close range in the 17th minute but Everton were reduced to 10 men when Phil Jagielka was shown a red card for a foul on Diogo Jota in the 40th minute.
Five minutes later Wolves drew level thanks to a superbly executed free-kick from Ruben Neves.
But Everton held firm and Richarlison struck again in the 67th minute with a delightful finish that looked to have won the game until Jimenez’s header from a Neves cross 10 minutes from the end.
