Steve Bull was blown away by the impact Wolves duo Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota made in their 2-1 win over Manchester United last Saturday.

Both players scored in the memorable FA Cup win at Molineux, a result which saw them progress to the semi-finals, and Bull believes that this game showed what “unbelievable form” they are in at the moment.

He says that the opposition’s defence must fear coming up against them after the way they have played together this season, something which he puts down to them knowing each other so well.

“Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota did the business yet again – they’re in unbelievable form,” he said in his Express and Star column.

“Defenders must be thinking ‘oh sugar I don’t fancy playing them’. They connect with each other so well – it’s like they’re on a piece of string, they both know exactly where each other is.”


There is not much more you can say about the impact Jota and Jimenez are making at the moment. The possibility of stopping them in their tracks is very slim at the moment, and Watford must be quaking in their boots at the prospect of facing them in the FA Cup semi-final. You just know that these two players are going to play a pivotal part in that game, and it would not be surprising if at least one of them scores the goal that takes them to the final. Wolves just have to sign Jimenez when the season finishes, as they would be mad not to. He is just the striker that they have been crying out for for a long time, and now that they have him, they should not let him go. The 27-year-old is going to be crucial to their success in years to come – as is Jota.
