Raul Jimenez believes Wolves are ‘dreaming big’ as they moved up to seventh in the Premier League table after victory on the road at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Mexican opened the scoring in a 2-0 win in just the sixth minute of the contest, and with Leander Dendoncker adding a second just 12 minutes later, it was the perfect way for the side to recover after their loss to Spurs’ north London rivals last time out.
On bouncing back from Thursday night
“It is always good to bounce back after a defeat at home. We knew this was a big opportunity for us to get back and continue doing what we know how to do.
“We came here to impose our game and we had to suffer a bit, but we are working hard during the weeks to keep improving and keep winning.
“We came to play our game and we deserve the win.”
On overcoming Spurs
“It was always the plan to come here and do our game with the ball and make them run. We knew we would have opportunities. We needed to capitalise and score the goals.
"We knew sometimes they concede goals for losing ball when they are doing their game. We had those opportunities. We’ve had troubles this season scoring, but today we did what we wanted. We are always confidence.
“We know what we can do. We are in a good time and we can keep improving and go higher in the table. We are dreaming big.”
On his opening goal
“I saw the goalkeeper and saw that he looked like he was going to punch the ball, and I just gave two steps behind and it came straight to me and I didn’t even think, I just hit the strike and I think it was a good goal.
“It was good [for Dendoncker to score the second]. Just to have one goal, it’s always better to have two goals to give a bit of space.”
