Jiménez also gets the title of the first Mexican player to receive a red card in the Premier League. The internet was quick to capitalize on Jiménez’s sending off

"Wanna see me do it again?"

Was Jiménez stupid for doing this? Absolutely. Was the red card necessary? Debatable.

Not everyone was pleased with referee Jonathan Moss’ decision to show Jiménez two yellow cards for his actions. Some felt the choice to send the striker off so early into the game was unwarranted.

Wolves held on for 20 minutes in the second half until Raheem Sterling converted a penalty that would turn out to be the game’s only goal.

A 1-0 defeat isn’t too bad for Wolves given the situation that Jiménez left the team a man short for the entire second half.
