WOLVES’ return to the Premier League began with a 2-2 draw as they twice battled back to earn a point against 10-man Everton at Molineux.
Debutant Richarlison, Everton’s club-record signing, scored a goal in each half either side of Ruben Neves’ equaliser from a free-kick, awarded after Phil Jagielka was shown a straight red card late in the first half.
It looked like Wolves’ first home Premier League match for six years would end in disappointment, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s team replied again 10 minutes from time as Raul Jimenez capped a fine individual display with a headed goal.
The goals and the red card were the only notable pieces of action of the first half.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo was pleased with a point.
“I am satisfied with the way we came back from behind, the character,” Nuno told BT Sport.
“There were a lot of positives but we also made mistakes in the way we conceded.
“We started a little bit nervous, but the team reacted good and started to play the style and the movement we should do.
“For the first game in the Premier League for many of us we gave a good answer. I think we are in the growing process as a team.”
