Wolves loses to Crystal Palace and everyone wonders why Raul Jiménez was not a starter?

The Mexican's goal helped his club to play with more confidence, which was reflected in the scoreboard, as the first 3 goals of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC came in the first 21 minutes of the game, while the last goal of the match was scored in the 85th minute. 

This was Raúl Jiménez's great goal

The Wolverhampton Wanderers FC striker and his club started the attack with the rival area from the first minutes of the match and the siege they committed to Watford paid off in the 13th minute. 

At that moment, a series of passes between Jiménez and Hwang Hee-chan resulted in the Mexican being left alone in front of Ben Foster's goal, a situation that the Mexican did not miss to open the 1-0 on the scoreboard. 

And from then on, the Mexican would also be a factor in his team's convincing victory over the Hornets, as the second goal would come in the 18th minute, which would be an own goal by Juan Camilo Hernández, making it 2-0 on the scoreboard. 

Podence and Neves put the scoreboard at 2-0

The Wolves came out looking like beasts today, as just a few minutes after the Hornets' own goal, Daniel Podence put the score at 3-0, with which both teams would go to the break at the end of the first half.

And just when it looked like Watford would wake up in the second half, Ruben Neves sealed the game 4-0 with a goal that ended up dashing the visitors' hopes. 

With this victory, Wolves moved closer to the European competition

With this win, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC has moved closer to the European competition places as they are currently in 8th place in the overall Premier League table. 

It is worth remembering that to access European competitions such as the UEFA Champions League, Europe League, and European Conference League, aspiring teams must be in the top 7 of the overall table. 

The top 4 places in the Premier League earn their automatic pass to the Champions League, the fifth and sixth places go to the Europa League and the seventh-place goes to the European Conference League.

That is why Raul Jimenez's goal today was so valuable, as it encouraged his club to go for the result of the match, which they found to gain the points available on match day.
