Wolves striker Raul Jimenez was one of the best signings in the Premier League last season and he has continued his form from last season into this season.

The Mexican has already scored two vital goals this season, an extremely composed last minute penalty to salvage a point against Burnley and perhaps what could end up being one of the biggest goals in recent history for Wolves with a stunning solo goal away to Torino in the first leg of the Europa League qualifying playoffs.

Jimenez, 28, signed from Benfica last season for a club record of $39-million became an instant fan favourite helping Wolves to seventh place in the Premier League and the FA Cup semi-final with thirteen goals and eight assists.

It will be extremely difficult for Wolves to replicate last season’s success but they are going the right way so far. They are on the brink of the Europa League group stages with a 3-2 lead over Torino in the first leg of the final qualifying round and are currently unbeaten in the Premier League with three draws.

Earlier in the Europa League qualifying rounds Raul Jimenez scored a brace against Armenian side FC Pyunik as Wolves cruised past them in a 4-0 victory.

Up next for Wolves is a trip to Everton which is a team Jimenez enjoyed playing against last season with two goals in as many games. Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping his Mexican maestro will be on top form as they search for their first Premier League win.
