Wolves off bottom with late win at Everton on Lopetegui's PL bow

New Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui marked his Premier League bow with a dramatic late win as Rayan Ait-Nouri's 95th-minute strike secured a 2-1 victory over Everton at Goodison Park which moved Wolves off the bottom of the table.

The Spaniard saw his side reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals in midweek with victory over Gillingham, but Yerry Mina provided Everton with the perfect start when he flashed home a header (7) from Dwight McNeil's corner to mark his return to the team.

Wolves settled and levelled when Joao Moutinho expertly spotted the run of Daniel Podence in a fine move started from a cleverly-worked set-piece (22).

t seemed neither side had done enough to turn one point into three during a tense second half, but, deep into stoppage time, Wolves broke upfield and Adama Traore's cross was deflected into Ait-Nouri's path for an untidy but priceless finish.

The win moves Wolves on to 13 points in 17th place, one position and one point below Everton following their fourth straight defeat in all competitions to heap the pressure on Frank Lampard.
