Jimenez wanting wolves to better against defensive teams


27th October 2020

Jimenez and his team-mates had been left pissed off as they drew 1-1 with Newcastle at Molineux on Sunday.

The Mexican scored a stunner which seemed set to seal a third Premier League win on the spin for Nuno Espirito Santo’s aspect however the Magpies, having sat back for maximum of the sport, grabbed a point at the demise thru Jacob Murphy’s loose-kick.

And the disenchanted Jimenez stated: “It’s hard to play against this stuff. They come simplest to peer if they are able to get a point.

“They never did something to win the game, so it’s difficult to break them.

“We have to be focused on that. Since we’ve been promoted to the Premier League, these kind of games have been the most difficult for us, I think.

"We have to start doing better against this.”

Jimenez scored his fourth goal in six games however Wolves ended up regretting overlooked opportunities as that they had 16 pictures – with most effective 3 on track.

Murphy then curled his unfastened-kick around a poorly set-up wall, catching Rui Patricio bloodless, for a proportion of the spoils.

“It’s difficult. It’s a shame to fight for all the game, having opportunities all the game,” said Jimenez, now preparing for Friday’s visit of Crystal Palace.

“I think that was their only shot, so it’s difficult to think about it. Now we have to concentrate and focus because on Friday, we have another match.”

Wolves skipper Conor Coady shared Jimenez’s frustration, as he delivered: “We feel like we’ve had factors taken far from us.

“We should have won as we had enough chances and enough possession of the ball. It’s something where we’ll look at it. “We had a game plan. We knew Newcastle would come and sit in.

“They sit in well with a bank of five which is hard to break down. “You have to be patient and we were, getting a fantastic goal with Raul.

“But we should see the game out. I don’t know how many shots they had, but it wasn’t many. “We’re massively disappointed as it’s two points lost for us.”
