Football Results

Raul Jimenez scored an emotional first goal after fracturing his skull last season to help Wolves to one of the close football results in the Premier League. With the pressure mounting on both managers after an unfavourable set of results lately, the match was an end to end one. Nelson Semedo came the closest for the hosts in the first minute when he missed a big chance. Jose Sa’s kick released the Mexican who got past two defenders to slot the ball home. He missed a golden chance to seal the game a few minutes later but had his shot comfortably saved by the keeper.

Managers Reaction

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “It was a very tight game without big chances on both sides. The difference was that they had one moment where you saw the quality from Raul.” he added. “The defending was a little bit naïve, but it’s tough to win games when you don’t score goals and this is our problem a little bit. You can’t always expect clean sheets, but one time of naïve defending and lots of times of not finding the target is the result that you have seen today.”

Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “It was very good to win the three points and these go straight to our fans because we started the game very well in two ways – the chance we created with Semedo and the support from the stands from our fans.” he added. “The way they are supporting, we feel it from the first day so the three points go straight to them.”
