Raúl Jiménez, always present with Wolverhampton scored his eleventh goal of the season making it to the best scorers list of the Premier League and also making it into the top 10 of the several major European leagues.

With this number, the Mexican left behind several players with a much higher market value than his, for example, he tied Paul Pogba, Heung-Min Son and Gylfi Sigurdsson at the tenth position of the scorers' table in the Premier League.

Raúl Jiménez is one goal away from Alexandre Lacazette, Eden Hazard and Raheem Sterling, and two goals away from Sadio Mané, some of the distinguished names of the English league.

League Place With Leader
Premier League 10° Pogba, Son y Sigurdsson Sergio Agüero
LaLiga Ben Yedder y Benzema Lionel Messi
Serie A Immobile Cristiano Ronaldo
Bundesliga Werner Loka Jovic
Ligue 1 Kylian Mbappé
Liga NOS Fernandes Haris Seferovic
Eredivisie Vlap, Van Persie, Lammers y Peterson Luuk de Jong

But in the Spanish league, Jiménez would be tied in sixth place Karim Benzema and Wissam Ben Yedder, while in Italy he'd tied Ciro Immobile in seventh place.

A story that repeats in the Bundesliga, placed in seventh place with Timo Werner but is just four goals away from the leader, Luka Jovic. In France, Jiménez would be at eight place two goals behind from Neymar although not as close to Mbappé.

In the Eredivisie, Raúl would be behind the also Mexican, Hirving Lozano, but in seventh place with Robin Van Persie. And finally, in Portugal, he would sit at fourth place with Bruno Fernándes.

Raúl Jiménez is having the best season of his career, reflected in their numbers which can still grow from here to the end of the campaign.
