Everton survived a huge scare after late strikes from Alex Iwobi and Richarlison clinched a 4-2 victory over Lincoln.

The Toffees had fallen behind in the first minute, but equalised through a stunning Lucas Digne free-kick.

Gylfi Sigurdsson gave Marco Silva’s side a second-half lead, before they were pegged back by Bruno Andrade’s fierce volley.

But Iwobi, who was making his full Everton debut since joining from Arsenal, and Richarlison proved to be the difference.
