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

Raul Jimenez is off. Gets booked for a foul and then another yellow for blocking the free-kick. Embarrassing— Simon Bajkowski (@spbajko) December 11, 2021
Raúl Jiménez with the classic example of an existential red for Wolves against Manchester City. Two yellows, 48 seconds apart, then gave sarcastic applause as he walked off. He felt everything there.— Musa Okwonga (@Okwonga) December 11, 2021
Raul Jimenez has just been given the stupidest red card you'll ever see. Booked for a challenge on Rodri, free-kick given on the halfway line, wouldn't retreat then stuck his leg out to block it being taken. Second yellow and off. Daft.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonESPN) December 11, 2021
One of the all-time stupid red cards from Raul Jimenez.— Tom Williams (@tomwfootball) December 11, 2021
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.
