Jimenez says the goals will flood back once he scores first one

Raul Jimenez is still waiting for his first competitive goal since his return to Wolves action.

He netted in pre-season, but like the rest of his teammates, he hasn’t found the net in the Premier League yet this term.

Jimenez was given the night off when Wolves got their shooting boots on at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.

But speaking to Sky Sports, on Soccer Saturday at 1.44pm on Saturday 28/08, he was confident that the goals will come soon.

“I set my own standards too high! I want to be back at that moment when I was at my best,” said Jimenez.

“I’m going to be there. It’s just a matter of time, to score the first goal and then they’re coming.

“All of them. I’m waiting for that moment to arrive. I’ll be happy when it happens.”

Jimenez might have fancied himself to bag one of the two big chances Adama Traore has had in the first two league matches of the season.

In all likelihood, Jimenez is right. Once the first one comes, the monkey will be off his back.

The same will go for Wolves as a whole, in terms of scoring goals in the Premier League.

Wolves are creating more chances under Bruno Lage than they did under Nuno Espirito Santo, and that can only be good for Jimenez.
