Julen Lopetegui’s Wolverhampton Wanderers side got his Premier League tenure off to the perfect start, snatching all three points against Everton in the 95th minute to win 2-1.
Wolves were looking to win three consecutive games against Everton since a five-game winning run that ended in 1960 and gave themselves a fighting chance, as they responded and drew level midway in the first-half through Daniel Podence after he calmly volleyed home a lovely ball into the box from João Moutinho.
Everton weren’t willing to give up their lead without a fight though, as they went close to going ahead again only for a strong save from José Sá to deny Anthony Gordon and keep Wolves level.
With the game coming to a close, a winner for Wolves began to look less likely as the Wanderers had failed to score in the closing 30 minutes of a league game so far this season.
The Toffees looked the more likely to grab a winner and went close inside the last ten minutes, as substitute Thomas Cannon went close to putting them ahead only for his shot to be cleared off the line.
