The Nigeria international struck in the 12th minute to restore Everton’s lead after Wolves cancelled a Richarlison opener at the Goodison Park on Sunday.
Alex Iwobi has handed the Toffees another lead in what is turning out to be a thriller in Match Day 3 of the English Premier League.

Marco Silva’s men struck first in the fourth minute after a mix up between a Wolves defender and his goalkeeper allowed Brazil international Richarlison to slam a first time shot home.
Wolverhampton reacted beautifully and were leveled four minutes later after good work from Adama Traore.
A frenetic start got even more exciting when Iwobi nodded home a brilliant cross from Seamus Coleman.

The goal was Iwobi’s first in the league for Everton since joining from Arsenal in the summer. It arrived just days after the 23-year-old scored in a 4-2 triumph over Lincoln City in the League Cup.
