The Nigeria international has opened his league goal account for the Toffees on his first appearance at Goodison Park

Alex Iwobi scored his first Premier League goal in Everton’s 3-2 triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.

Iwobi, who scored his maiden goal for Everton during Wednesday's League Cup outing against Lincoln City, continued his fine scoring form with another strike.

The 23-year-old summer-signing converted Gylfi Sigurdsson's cross to the back of the net with his header to put Marco Silva's men ahead again in the 12th minute.

Richarlison earlier opened the scoring for the hosts at Goodison Park in the fifth minute but the lead was cancelled out by Morocco's Romain Saiss four minutes later.

Iwobi has now scored two goals in his opening three games for the Merseyside outfit.

Meanwhile, Ivory Coast's Willy Boly was sent off in stoppage time after receiving his second yellow card of the day.

The victory was Everton’s second of the season which earned them seven points after four Premier League matches.
