TT Introduces: Raul Jimenez as Wolves’ unsung hero

Wolves go into their Premier League clash versus Watford later today at Molineux in a great position with the club having only lost one game so far this season.

They currently sit seventh in the Premier league table on 15 points with the likes of Matt Donherty, Ruben Neves and summer signing Joao Moutinho taking most of the acclaim.

But as well as the trio, striker Raul Jimenez has also played a big part in what is proving to be a successful transition from the Championship to the Premier League for Wolves.

Jimenez arrived at Molineux on loan from Benfica during the summer and has made quite the impact since joining the club.

The 27-year-old rescued a point for his side on his debut back in August when he popped up towards the end of a tight affair against Everton to head Nuno Espirito Santo’s men level in a 2-2 draw, while he netted the winner in a 1-0 win over Burnley the following month.

And while Jimenez has yet to add to his tally, the Mexican forward’s overall contribution to the team has still been more than efficient.

The energy he is providing up front is causing problems for defenders with the Mexico international relentless in chasing and harrying down the opposition when Wolves are without possession.

All in all, Jimenez has been a huge factor behind the promising start Wolves have made to the season and probably deserves a bit more recognition for his contribution to the team thus far.
