Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez has returned to Premier League action with his club after undergoing head surgery following a horrific injury that saw him fracture his skull before the end of last season. The Mexico international striker suffered the career-threatening injury in one of the matches he played for the club last season and many people thought it was going to be the end of his career for him. However, after being attended to by some professional doctors, he underwent a successful surgery and was passed fit to return to the football pitch but not without making use of headgear for his safety.

He played on one of the friendly matches that Wolves were involved in during pre-season and that was the first time he took to a football pitch since the injury. However, he marked his return to the Premier League on Sunday afternoon when they welcomed Tottenham Hotspur, now managed by their former manager Nuno Espirito Santo, to the Molineux Stadium.

The result of the match was not what Jimenez and his colleagues would have expected or wanted because Dele Alli's first-half strike from the penalty spot was enough to guarantee the visiting team all three points as the match ended 1-0 in favor of Tottenham. However, even in defeat, there was still a tangible reason for the Wolves faithful to be in a jubilant mood as one of their players returned to action for them.

Jimenez looked sharp in the match, especially in the opening 45 minutes of the game but he was neither able to help his side seal a win nor help them avoid defeat against a resilient Tottenham side. Wolves had their chances but their lack of being clinical cost them all three points.
