The Mexican striker, Raúl Jiménez reached the grand number of 100 goals throughout his career during the match against Chelsea, but that's not the only thing he accomplished on that game.

Jiménez matched Steven Fletcher as Wolverhampton's top scorer in a single Premier League season with 12 goals same number Fletcher achieve in the 2011-2012 season.

Since arriving in England, the Mexican came on strong starting to score immediately with his first goal happening late August against Everton. Before the end of 2018, Jiménez scored against Burnley, Tottenham twice, Chelsea, and Bournemouth. While since the start of 2019 he has scored against West Ham, Everton again and Bournemouth.

His eleventh goal came last week when the 'Wolves' faced Cardiff City but the magic number to tie Fletcher came against Chelsea, becomingJIménez' best campaign since he landed in Europe.

Jiménez vs. Chicharito

With this goal, Raúl Jiménez is one goal away from matching the best scorer record from a Mexican in the Premier League, which belongs to Javier 'Chicharito' Hernández that achieved in the 2010-11 season with Manchester United.
