Manchester United fans all make the same point after Wolves win against Bournemouth
The relegation-threatened Cherries put up a brave fight but Raul Jimenez’s second-half header secured another win.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side now boast an unbeaten run in the Premier League of seven matches dating back to Liverpool’s win at Molineux in January.
Jimenez, who scored his 24th goal of a brilliant season, revealed afterwards just how high confidence is in the Wolves camp ahead of the final seven fixtures.

“It feels amazing,” he said. “We are working very hard in the last couple of weeks before we start again. We made it great on the pitch and like this, as a pack, we can achieve anything.”
Jimenez’s comments – and another three points – served as another reminder that Wolves are ready to capitalise on any slip-ups their rivals make in the coming weeks.
Manchester United offered no indications of doing so in a resounding 3-0 win over Sheffield United that kept Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side level on points with Wolves, while Chelsea are two points ahead.
But United fans were quick to point out the threat they are facing from Molineux after Wednesday’s fixtures.
One supporter on social media said: “I wouldn’t be shocked if #mufc and #wwfc finish 3rd and 4th. #lcfc fixtures really tough. #cfc not bad but nowhere near as easy as Man U or Wolves.”
“Great @ManUtd performance tonight,” said another. “Delighted to see a Pogba-Bruno-Martial-Rashford-Martial chip Soccer ball move for the third. OGS will be happy @AnthonyMartial scored two goals with a first time shot in the penalty area. Unfortunately Wolves won too.”
A third added: “Battle is on #wolves #mufc.”
“Tony Martial scores again!” said another, before admitting: “Good victory, I fear Wolves!”
A fifth said: “To be honest I’m a bit worried about @Wolves. Their “tough ” games on paper are @Arsenal @SheffieldUnited @Everton and @ChelseaFC. Can’t trust Arsenal and Sheffield are dipping. The Chelsea game is the last game when we play Leicester.”
“Wolves don’t look like going away so scoring 3 unanswered goals was important,” added another. “That +7 goal difference is like an extra point.”
