Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both in promising positions in the race to secure a European spot, so this weekend’s fixture is a big one for both clubs.
The Toffees haven’t been able to ensure consistency in recent times, but they’ll still feel confident that they can go the extra mile to secure a European place. Meanwhile, the Midlands club have been very impressive, considering this is their first season back in the top-flight, so they’ll be looking to take things one step further.
Everton will welcome Wolves to Goodison Park later on today in their next Premier League fixture, so we took a look at Richarlison and Raul Jimenez’s influence.
With that in mind, let’s compare these two transfers…
Marcel Brands made a big statement by securing the Brazilian in a potential £50 million deal back in the summer transfer window. It’s safe to say that he has been one of the standout performers for the Merseyside club up until this point, despite being forced to operate at the pinnacle of the attack.
Nevertheless, the 21-year-old is a special talent who has the potential to go on to establish himself as one of the best attackers in world football, having already produced 11 goals and two assists this season.
TT GRADE: A
Jorge Mendes helped Wolves secure the services of one of his clients, Raul Jimenez, back in the summer transfer window on a season-long loan deal.
The Mexican international has been sublime this season for the Midlands club, having produced an impressive 10 goals and six assists, as the club’s biggest contributor in the final third.
Jimenez has already played a big part in Wolves’ season and he will no doubt go on to play an even bigger part from here on in until the end of the current campaign, with his efforts possibly sealing a European spot.
TT GRADE: A
When comparing these two, it’s safe to say that both players have impressed for their respective clubs in the current campaign, but Jimenez is in the lead with three more contributions to his name.
The Brazilian has been difficult for any defence to handle, with his pace, skill and finishing ability making him one of the most dangerous attackers in the Premier League.
On the other hand, Jimenez has been the source of all things brilliant for Wolves as he continues to link up play, as well as putting in match-winning performances.
Both players have established themselves as standout performers in the Premier League this season, but it’s Jimenez who is currently enjoying a slightly more successful time of things.
