When Southampton and Wolves met in early September, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Bruno Lage were pitting their tactical wits against one another. Fast forward five months, and this weekend’s battle will be contested between Nathan Jones and Julen Lopetegui, underlining the sink-or-swim nature of Premier League football.

Of course, since those managerial reshuffles, both clubs have taken different trajectories. Southampton appear ready pull the metaphorical trigger on Jones soon, with his side enduring eight defeats from their last nine games, leaving them dead last. Lopetegui meanwhile has achieved three wins from his last six, including a recent 3-0 humbling of Liverpool.

Indeed, the Saints have fired a blank in three of their last four games, and enter this contest on the South Coast with a bloodied nose from Brentford, who dished out a 3-0 spanking last time out. If Jones cannot arrest his side’s current tailspin, particularly against a relegation rival in Wolves, then it could potentially be curtains. A win for Wolves, meanwhile, could just well take them out of the relegation dogfight conversation.

Southampton vs Wolves match stats

Ruben Neves’ Wolves future has been a source of debate for a number of transfer windows now, with Liverpool a name frequently cast forward when discussing the metronomic midfielder. And any interest would have soared at the weekend, as the Portuguese netted the third goal in Liverpool’s capitulation, tucking home from a precision Adama Traore pass. A heart-on-sleeve midfielder, Neves’ tenacity defines him, but can often be a double-edged sword, as he has collected seven bookings this season, with only Joelinton, Ivan Toney and Joao Palhinha (all eight) picking up more.

Southampton will need a player to step up and bag the goals, but they have really struggled for Premier League potency. Che Adams has actually scored more goals in his five League Cup games this season (five) than he has in his 20 Premier League appearances (four). Mohamed Elyounoussi meanwhile has had the most shots on target without scoring so far in the Premier League this season of any player. Something has to give.

It was a tense showdown in the Black Country back in September, with Lage able to claim a marginal victory through Daniel Podence. Lopetegui would certainly take a similarly slender triumph.
