Newly promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton served up a thrilling four-goal clash when both sides meet at the Molineux on Saturday evening for their season opener.
Summer signing Richarlison edged Everton ahead on 17 minutes with a close-range finish on his league debut for the Toffees.
The hosts were then handed a route back into the match in the 40th minute following the dismissal of Everton captain Phil Jagielka for a tackle on Wolves forward Diogo Jota.
Nuno Santo’s men equalised four minutes later from the resultant freekick through Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves as both teams ended the half on level terms.
Armed with a numerical advantage, Wolves seized control of the game only for Everton to take the lead again midway into the second half in what was one of their rare forays upfront.
Richarlison was the goal recipient again following the good work from January signing Cenk Tosun.
The ten men of Everton could not hang on to the lead after new Wolves signing Raul Jimenez hit an 80th minute equaliser on his debut to hand his side a 2-2 draw.
