Wolverhampton forward Raul Jimenez scored his 16th goal of the season as Wolves came from behind to beat Norwich 2-1 in an away match.The Canaries remain in 19th place but Southampton’s win against Aston Villa means the Saints move up to 17th, six points clear of Norwich.

Norwich dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead when Todd Cantwell fired home from the middle of the box after pouncing on a loose ball.

But Wolves hit back after the break when Romain Saiss headed powerfully home.Jimenez then snatched victory for the visitors when he fired in after Tim Krul had denied Matt Doherty.

It was a disappointing result for Norwich, who could have been out of sight in the first half after Teemu Pukki was twice denied when one on one with keeper Rui Patricio, while Alex Tettey hit the post.

Meanwhile, victory for Wolves moves them up to sixth and gets them back to winning ways after their 11-match unbeaten run was ended by Tottenham last week.
