Wolves defeat Southampton in second Premier League victory

Wolves smashed Southampton to a sixth consecutive league defeat with a 1-0 victory at St Mary’s and register their second Premier League victory of the season. Raul Jimenez was the difference between the two teams. Threatened in the first half, but scored a well-deserved goal that demonstrated persistence, strength, and poise.

Raul Jimenez from the Wolves scored the only goal of the football match. This is marked as his first goal since suffering a fractured skull in November 2020. Both teams had a tough clash in the first half but failed to produce much of note and entered into the break without a goal. There was a distinct lack of quality in the final third for much of the game.

Shortly before halftime, Nathan Redmond had the ball in the back of the net for Southampton, only to have the flag raised to indicate that he was offside. But Jimenez’s moment of brilliance came on the hour mark with a goal worthy of winning the game, a strike of his own creation.

The Mexican raced onto a long ball from Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa, outmuscling Jan Bednarek, flooring Mohammed Salisu, beating Bednarek again, and coolly slotting home. After forcing Sa into several saves, the goal knocked the wind out of Southampton. They huffed and puffed all the way to the end, but Wolves stood firm. Check out the football results of the Premier League match in which Wolves defeat Southampton.
