Everton slipped to a 2-1 home defeat on Boxing Day as relegation rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers came from behind to score a dramatic stoppage-time winner through Rayan Ait-Nouri.

The Toffees made the ideal start when Yerry Mina glanced in Dwight McNeil’s corner but the hosts conceded a sloppy equaliser before Ait-Nouri’s late strike secured a vital three points for Wolves, who move off the bottom of the Premier League.
