Richarlison strikes twice but 10-man Everton held at…

Everton’s new Brazilian signing Richarlison scored twice on his Premier League debut for the club but Marco Silva’s side had to settle for a point.

The former Watford forward, who moved to Everton for 40 million pounds ($51 million) in July, slotted home from close range in the 17th minute but Everton were reduced to 10 men when Phil Jagielka was shown a red card for a foul on Diogo Jota in the 40th minute.

Five minutes later Wolves drew level thanks to a superbly executed free-kick from Ruben Neves.

But Everton held firm and Richarlison struck again in the 67th minute with a delightful finish that looked to have won the game until Jimenez’s header from a Neves cross 10 minutes from the end. ($1 = 0.7833 pounds) (Reporting by Simon Evans, Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
