PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! It is 34 years since Everton last won the league title and while they remain outsiders this season, Carlo Ancelotti has put this grand old club firmly back in the conversation again.Michael Keane's late header took Ancelotti's side within a point of city rivals Liverpool and with the Reds taking on new leaders Manchester United this weekend, Everton could make further strides if their weekend game at Covid-hit Aston Villa goes ahead.The Premier League will decide on that fixture on Wednesday but for now, Everton can reflect on a job well done.   Michael Keane's late header (above) has taken Everton to within a point of rivals Liverpool RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Luton 0-2 QPR: Goals from Charlie Austin and Macauley Bonne...

'The game was in the balance, we won thanks to Michael Keane, who scored a fantastic goal.'The players adapted really well. The position of James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson in front was really good. We adapted well to the characteristics of our players.'We perform better away because at home we don't have the support of our fans at the moment, which is really important but we are in a good position.'  Alex Iwobi (above) handed the visitors the lead following a nice bit of play from Digne However, Ruben Neves found the net for Wolves to make the game level before half-timeWhile Everton march up the table, Wolves have won only one of their last eight in the league and continue to suffer without Raul Jimenez, who has not played since sustaining a serious head injury in November.

.With his main forwards unable to start, Ancelotti paired James with Sigurdsson to provide the edge in a fluid 4-4-2 formation.It paid off quickly for Everton, who took the lead in the sixth minute. James played a superb crossfield pass to the left where Lucas Digne switched it first time to Iwobi. The former Arsenal man had plenty of time and space to plant a shot beyond Rui Patricio from 20 yards.Wolves levelled when Yerry Mina failed to clear Pedro Neto's corner, allowing Rayan Ait-Nouri to turn the ball back in the danger zone, where Neves volleyed it in from close range.Having had a hand in that goal, Neves nearly created another when he collected Leander Dendoncker's pass and found Silva eight yards out, only for Jordan Pickford to make a good save.   But it was Michael Keane who finished the game off by scoring the winner in the 77th minuteAt the other end, Iwobi was having plenty of joy on the right but he should have done better than shoot straight at Rui Patricio after James' return pass had sent him clear.Early in the second half, Wolves danger man Neto took a hefty whack from Abdoulaye Doucoure, which brought a booking for the Everton midfielder. Neto seemed in some pain but was able to continue after lengthy treatment. Dendoncker then headed over Moutinho's free-kick from an inviting position.Neves is renowned for his ability to score spectacular goals and in the 70th minute he nearly produced another, controlling a dropping ball 30 yards out and sending a dipping volley a fraction over the bar. Keane's intervention moments later proved far more telling as he climbed brilliantly at the far post to give Patricio no chance.It was more poor defending from Wolves and coach Nuno Espirito Santo admitted: 'We have to improve defensively very fast. In the second half we should have done better. We need all our players healthy so we can improve. We are very worried [about our form].'Neves was inches away from claiming his second with a free-kick close to the penalty area that hit the angle of post and bar with Pickford beaten.
