“Previously his record was a bit dark, but he has come to the Premier League and is well on his way. He was a relief.

“What I like about him is that he scores all kinds of goals. He stands behind and leads things and teases defenders, and he can score great goals out of nowhere (against Burnley). ‘

Jimenez scored 31 goals in 120 games for Benfica, but scored 43 goals in 96 games for Wolves, joining a permanent £ 30 million deal in 2019.

The Mexico international also helped keep Wolves’ hopes for European qualification alive on Monday-evening by starring in the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
