Mexican star Raul Jimenez scored his 17th goal of the Premier League season in emphatic fashion.

His venomous volley gave Wolves a lead in their 1-1 draw with Burnley at the Molineux Stadium on Wednesday.

Jimenez, 29, was quick on and off his feet to capitalize on a loose ball.

Matt Doherty’s speculative shot bounded off the leg of James Tarkowski and onto the path of Jimenez, who tore into a volley from inside the 18.

Jimenez now has 26 goals in 52 appearances this season across all competitions, adding 10 assists in what is one of the finest performances from an El Tri player in club history.

Up until the recent rise in forms of Christian Pulisic and Alphonso Davies, Jimenez has unequivocally been the best North American player in the world. He’s still got that going for him for now, which is nice.
