Pablo Sarabia has arrived for Wolves and must now kick on from first goal

Wolves star Pablo Sarabia is off the mark – and the star must now kick on from his first goal and become a key player for Julen Lopetegui.

The Spaniard was on target at Craven Cottage, scoring in the first-half.

The star picked up the ball after a lay off from Raul Jimenez and then spread the play out wide to Matheus Nunes.

Nunes picked out Jimenez at the back post, and the Mexican nodded the ball down smartly for Sarabia, who provided a lovely controlled finish.

It was Sarabia’s fifth appearance for Wolves since making a £4.5 million move from Paris Saint-Germain in January.

It was his fourth league start in a row, and this was definitely his brightest showing so far.

He’s just taken a bit of time to get used to the Premier League, and he has now managed to open his account which is encouraging.

It’s possible Wolves could be without Matheus Cunha for a while, with the Brazilian having been stretchered off against Fulham.

So Wolves are going to need their other attackers to step up in his absence.

Sarabia came to Molineux with a reputation for being an attacking midfielder who scores goals and provides assists.

He must now use his first goal for Wolves as a catalyst to kick on.

Potentially, Sarabia hitting form for Wolves will be huge for the club’s survival mission.

It was great to see Sarabia open his account for Wolves.

He’s made a decent start so far at Wolves, but we could see him start to become more influential now that he’s got his first goal under his belt.

He’s got that creativity and an eye for goal himself.

Wolves have seriously struggled in the final third this season and have been crying out for a difference maker up top.

Sarabia may not be the out-and-out striker Wolves really need. But he certainly has the potential to make a big difference in attack.

He can undoubtedly become one of Lopetegui’s key men. The manager clearly rates him highly.

He recently said of Sarabia (Shropshire Star): “He has a good mentality, is a hard worker, has quality and can score. Maybe he’s not a spectacular player, but he’s a very complete player.” 

You would think a player of his quality and experience will soon really start to thrive.
