    Jimenez was the decisive pass as Jota capped off a terrific team goal to take the lead, then did the work for the second.

    The Mexican forward hit a stunning outside of the boot cross then ran into position to collect a cutback and give Wolves a 2-0 lead heading into halftime.

    Adding injury to the insult was an injury to key defender Sol Bamba, who went down grasping his lower leg.
