Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi has expressed delight over his goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers in their English Premier League encounter at Molineux on Tuesday.

And commenting after the game Ancelotti was pleased with the way Iwobi and Digne combined for the opening goal.

Iwobi's only other league goal for Everton was on September 2019 against the same opponents.

However, Ruben Neves was on hand to restore parity for the hosts in the 14th minute, but the Toffees snatched the maximum points on offer through Michael Keane's 76th-minute goal to win the away tie 2-1.

Wolves had looked the more likely winners in a tiresome second half but Keane's towering header in the 77th minute sealed maximum points for Carlo Ancelotti's side. The position of James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson created problems for them.

Many Everton fans were devastated to hear that the club's top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin has suffered a hamstring injury and will be absent for an unspecified length of time.

"Without Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin it is more hard to score but I think to be focussed defensively enabled us to have a good game".

Iwobi scored his first Premier League goal of the season after putting Everton 1-0 ahead just six minutes into the game, finishing off Lucas Digne's pass.

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

"We played the game that we had planned".
