Wolves' Raul Jimenez Is Sent Off Vs Manchester City After Being Shown Two Yellow Cards In 48 Seconds

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez picked up one of the silliest red cards in recent memory against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

The Mexican was given his marching orders for the first time in the Premier League right at the end of the first half after collecting two yellow cards in just 48 seconds.

The first was for a cynical foul on Rodri in the middle of the pitch and then Jimenez ended up being shown a second yellow and subsequently a red from referee Jon Moss for stopping the resulting free-kick being taken.

He was stood right in front of Rodri as he went to get play underway again and stook out a leg.

Jimenez took a while to walk off the pitch, throwing his gloves on the turf in frustration before applauding the travelling Wolves supporters as he sauntered off.


Seven minutes were added on at the end of the first half due to a sickening clash of heads between Ruben Neves and Max Kilman.

The score was all square at the break but 10-man Wolves ended up losing 1-0 after Raheem Sterling's second-half penalty.

Joao Moutinho was penalised for handling the ball in the area and the decision stood following a VAR check, with Sterling rolling the ball down the middle.
