Wolverhampton Wanderers drew 0-0 with Leicester City on Friday evening and may have felt they should have come away all three points in injury time when Raul Jimenez had a free header from a corner. The 28-year-old missed the target, however, which summed up his performance on the night.

Jimenez was dominant in the air, saw a lot of the ball over the 90 minutes, drew a number of fouls, frequently took on his opponent and had more chances than any player on the pitch, but it was far from a vintage showing at Molineux.

Against Leicester, the Mexican international made 48 touches, won three aerial duels, had five shots with 0% accuracy, completed 75.9% of his 29 passes, whipped in one cross, made one tackle, gave away two fouls, made four successful dribbles and drew two fouls himself.

Jimenez has been outstanding for Wolves this season, scoring and creating 29 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions, but Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t have cover in case of injury or poor form. Leonardo Campana and Renat Dadashov are Wolves’ only natural strikers but neither made the squad.

Where will Wolverhampton Wanderers finish in the Premier League?
