Video: Raul Jimenez nets first Premier League goal for Wolves since horrific head injury
Southampton vs Wolves
Sunday’s early Premier League clash would see Southampton and Wolves face off at St Mary’s.
Both sides headed into the game in the bottom half of the Premier League table, with both also struggling for goals.
Wolves had picked up one win in five before Sunday, but had lost their remaining four Premier League ties.
Southampton, meanwhile, kicked off against Bruno Lage’s side still searching for their first win of the PL campaign.
The Saints, though, had drawn four in five before facing Wolves, with their confidence no doubt high heading into the match due to them holding Premier League champions, Manchester City, to a 0-0 draw in their previous outing.
And, to their credit, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side did dominate the majority of the game on Sunday in terms of both possession and goal attempts.
Raul Jimenez finds the net for first time since head injury
However, it would be the away outfit who eventually broke the deadlock on Sunday.
Wolves keeper Jose Sa would loft the ball upfield to Raul Jimenez, who, after creating a decent angle, smashed an effort past Alex McCarthy.
The goal was of course a huge one for Wolves due to their poor start to the season and struggles in front of goal.
But it was also a big one for Raul Jimenez. The Mexican suffered a horrific head injury back in November of 2020 vs Arsenal, which led to the striker missing the remainder of 2020/21
And though he has since returned to action this season and started all of Wolves’ previous five PL ties, Jimenez did look to be lacking confidence.
However, after netting vs the Saints, Jimenez is now hopefully going to get back to his scintillating best in the near future.
Watch the striker’s goal below:
“That is sensational… He’s got no right to score from there! Outstanding strength, balance, skill and finish!”
