Ghana's No. 1

Deflected Jimenez strike sees off Leeds

Published on: 19 October 2020

Raul Jimenez's deflected second-half goal was enough to give Wolves victory over Leeds at Elland Road and move Nuno Espirito Santo's men up to sixth in the Premier League.

Although Leeds dominated the opening period, the visitors were in charge from the final minute of the half when Daniel Podence's shot was saved.

In only the second top-flight Elland Road meeting between these two famous old clubs since 1981, Wolves were well on top by the time Jimenez took the ball across field from the right flank after 70 minutes, before checking inside to shoot from the edge of the box.

Kalvin Phillips tried to block the Mexican's effort but only succeeded in heading into the opposite corner, leaving goalkeeper Illan Meslier stranded and unable to stop Jimenez netting his third goal of the season.

Wolves thought they had scored earlier in the half when Roman Saiss lashed home Podence's cross, but after taking guidance from VAR Michael Oliver, referee David Coote ruled it out for offside.

Though close, it was the right call. It certainly created far less controversy than the incident the pair were involved in on Saturday when - with Oliver in charge and Coot at Premier League HQ - they deemed Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford did not deserve a red card after injuring Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk with a reckless challenge.
