Last season Wolves won just one of their clashes with sides in the top 11, which was a narrow victory over 10-man Manchester City. Wolves managed just one clean sheet in those 10 games, which should worry them in this meeting with free-scoring Saints.
Southampton can continue their fine form and condemn Wolves to a second consecutive Premier League when they travel to Molineux on Monday night.
Wolves will be without Jonny and Marcal in defence, while Conor Coady was forced to withdraw from England duty during the international break. The hosts also have doubts over midfielder Leander Dendoncker and full-back Rayan Ait-Nouri, leaving their backline vulnerable ahead of this clash.
- Southampton have scored in 20 of their last 22 away league games
- Wolves conceded to all but one of the top 11 Premier League sides last season
- The hosts have found the net in 22 of their last 25 home Premier League matches
- The last three clashes between these two have seen BTTS land
Southampton hold a 15-14 advantage over Wolves across the 40 matches played between these sides. There have been 11 matches draws.
Wolves won the last encounter 3-2 in January as Jan Bednarek and Shane Long put Saints 2-0 up before Wolves’ stunning comeback through Pedro Neto and a Raul Jimenez brace.
Of the 10 league games Wolves has won at home, they scored first 9 times. Of the 6 away games Southampton has lost, they conceded first 4 times.
