The Lowdown: Wolves head to Spurs
Bruno Lage’s side have made a slow start to the season, suffering defeat away to Leeds United before only drawing 0-0 at home to newly-promoted Fulham.
Next up for Wolves is Saturday’s trip to Spurs, in what is sure to be the biggest test of their credentials so far, with Antonio Conte’s side aiming for another top-four finish in 2022/23.
Ahead of the game, a big Wanderers update has emerged.
The Latest: Jimenez back fit
Mexico Director of National Teams, Jaime Ordiales, says the Molineux icon is ‘already considered to play again this week’.
It is stated that he is now ‘expected to see minutes’, in what is no doubt pleasing news for Bruno Lage.
The Verdict: Huge boost for Wolves
While Jimenez may arguably not be the player he once was – understandable, given the severity of the head injury he suffered in 2020 – he remains an important focal point at Molineux.
The Mexican’s tally of 54 goals in 146 appearances for Wolves, not to mention 29 in 93 caps for Mexico, is proof that he can much some much-needed firepower back into the squad.
It would be a surprise if Jimenez started at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but a second-half cameo could make sense, especially if Wanderers are in need of a goal.
