Everton welcomed Wolverhampton Wanderers at Goodison Park earlier today as they focused on collecting a good result at home in the Premier League. The Toffees made an excellent start to the game and opened the goal-scoring in the seventh minute when Yerry Mina found the back of the net. However, Daniel Podence equalised for the visitors just 15 minutes later as both sides went into the half-time break with a 1-1 scoreline.
The two teams canceled each other out for most of the second 45 minutes. However, Everton conceded a late injury-time goal when Rayan Ait-Nouri netted the winner. The Toffees ended up crashing to a poor 2-1 defeat in front of their home fans.
