Wolves forward Raul Jimenez is relishing playing in front of their home crowd when Crystal Palace visit the Molineux on Wednesday night.

Despite their big results against top teams in the Premier League this season, Jimenez is refusing to get carried away as they prepare to host Crystal Palace.

The Mexican forward understands the unpredictable of the league and is hoping their supporters will push them across the line in what he expects to be a “difficult match”.

“You never know what’s going to happen in the Premier League. That’s a great thing because anyone can beat anyone,” Jimenez told the club’s official website.

“Crystal Palace defeated Manchester City, so we know it’s going to be a difficult match. But all the matches in the Premier League are difficult, and Crystal Palace will be no exception.

“But we are back at our home and it’s the first match of the year, so it will be a special game for us.

“Molineux is very special because it’s always a full stadium. The fans are always giving us their support whether we are winning or losing, and that’s what makes us want more.

“I expect another full stadium, like always, and hope we can do our job and leave the pitch with three points.”
