Michael Keane scored a second-half victor to down a fearless Wolverhampton Wanderers side at Molineux and push Everton into a lofty fourth position in the Premier League - and both Yannick Bolasie and Tim Cahill have reacted.

The defender's second-half header lifted the Toffees back into the Premier League's top four.

Victory was sealed for the visitors in the 77th minute after Michael Keane powered home a brilliant header thanks to a cross from Andre Gomes.

Wolves have won just once in eight league games since November.

Many Everton fans were devastated to hear that the club's top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin has suffered a hamstring injury and will be absent for an unspecified length of time.

Everton have announced their team and substitutes for this evening's Premier League meeting with Wolves at Molineux.

Six minutes into the game, James Rodriguez played a crossfield pass to Lucas Digne before sending it back to Iwobi who calmly fired beyond goalkeeper Rui Patricio from 20 yards. Young left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri created the goal, reaching the byline before putting it on a plate for Neves.

It came after Abdoulaye Doucoure was booked for chopping down Pedro Neto and the midfielder will now miss the Toffees' next game.

Wolves are yet to find the consistency which propelled them to Europe and, without Jimenez, look unlikely to challenge again this season after another lightweight display.

Neves' free-kick then clipped the bar with five minutes to go but Wolves could not find a leveller.
