Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez has fired a warning to Southampton ahead of today’s Premier League clash.

Wolves are on the south coast at St. Mary’s Stadium, looking to bounce back from a disappointing past week.

Bruno Lage’s side were beaten 2-0 by Brentford last weekend.

They then went out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to Tottenham Hotspur in midweek.

As a result, today’s game is a big one.

Some fans are growing a little concerned with the team’s current form.

It has certainly been a rocky start, with Lage overseeing just two wins from seven games so far.

Hopefully Wolves discover their cutting edge today, against a side yet to win in the Premier League.

One man who is hoping to find his mojo in front of goal today is Jimenez.

The Mexican is yet to score this season, although he has had plenty of chances and also created many too.

 

Speaking ahead of the game, the 30-year-old has sent a warning to the Saints.

He said (Wolves official): “We want our revenge [after Brentford], this is football, sometimes you play good, you play bad, but we are doing good things.

“We’re looking forward to it. We want to go there and do our job, our game, and have the points. We are still confident about winning games, we know we have the opportunity to keep improving and get our win.

“We have to finish the actions and get the goal. We have been creating many opportunities, but haven’t been able to score the goals, so we have to go in, to focus and to score.”

On getting a rest in midweek, Jimenez added: “I want to play all the games, but in the end the coach is the one that decides, so it’s OK, I’m happy, doing my job, and I’ve had the opportunity to rest, so on Sunday I’m going to be ready.”

Jimenez goal hopefully imminent

Jimenez has been heavily involved so far for Wolves this season.

He has been really good linking the play, although he has taken up some unusual positions out wide at times.

At least games are not passing him by, and that will hopefully mean he’ll soon convert a chance.

Ideally, he’ll do that today with Lage really needing a win to relieve a bit of the pressure early doors.
