Raul Jimenez scored his first goal for Wolves since coming back from injury.

The Mexico international suffered a fractured skull last November and was kept out of action until his return at the start of this season.

The 30-year-old slotted in the opening goal of the game against Southampton after 61 minutes, 10 months since his last goal which came against Newcastle.

What was Raul JImenez’s goal like?

The Wolves star ran on to a long pass from goalkeeper Jose Sa, beating Southampton defender Jan Bednarek in a physical tussle to get the ball.

He then cut in to evade the tackle of Mohammed Salisu and dragged the ball back, sending Bednarek sliding past him, before sending it beyond the onrushing Alex McCarthy.

The goal is his 35th in the Premier League for Wolves.
