Raul Jimenez marked his 100th appearance for Wolverhampton Wanderers with a goal in Monday’s 2-0 win against Sheffield United but his all-round performance earned him plenty of plaudits.

The Mexican, who scored 17 Premier League goals last season, received the highest rating from BBC Sport readers with an average score of 8.69.

“He is a talent,” said Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo. “But it goes beyond that, what he gives to the team and the way he works.”

Wolves captain Conor Coady added: “Everybody looks at his goals and his goal involvement. He is an incredible finisher but more importantly he is an incredible person and fantastic to work with.”
