The absence of the Mexican striker Raúl Jiménez weighs heavily on the Wolves team, as it was once again defeated, this time by Club Burnley corresponding to matchday 14 of the Premier League. It is impressive how Wolverhampton needs the presence of the Mexican attacker Raúl Jiménez. Burnley managed to break out of the relegation places, thanks to a 2-1 victory against Jimenez's team.
Before that victory, Burnely had only managed to score six goals in all the Premier League season so far. Ashley Barnes, scored the opener, so he ended a streak of more than a year without goals, the second goal was scored by the New Zealander player Chris Wood on the 51minute.
Raúl Jiménez had only spoken through statements on social networks, although the other day he could be seen publicly in a training session for his team. The Mexican assured that he works hard to return, as he wants to be playing again as soon as possible. Manager Nuno Espirito Santo said that Jimenez is progressing and improving very well, but there is no timescale for his return from a head injury, as he has to recover first his health, then we can start thinking about in his returning.
The manager also said that after Raul´s injury, the squad is not balance, the Mexican is very important for the team and without him, we are losing important places in the general table. Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed that Wolves will look to sign a striker in the January transfer window to cover for Raul Jimenez's long-term absence. Raul Jimenez scored 27 goals last season, that is a great number for a Mexican striker.
