Wolves vs Southampton: Predictions

Wolves have not been at their brilliant best under Nuno Espirito Santo this season, but there are shoots of recovery starting to show in recent games. A defeat to Crystal Palace has been the team’s only loss in their last five games, a run that has seen them hold high-flying Chelsea and Leicester to goalless draws also.

Although a late surge towards the European places is unlikely at this stage, so is a drop towards the relegation battle, so Santo and his charges may be targeting a run in the FA Cup this season. They’ve come close to the final once before in recent memory, losing to Watford at the final four stage two years ago.

Southampton had been flying high in the table and were looking like potential gate-crashers in the Europa League chase earlier on in the season, but they make the trip to Molineux on Saturday on the back of four consecutive defeats in the Premier League, a run that has seen them drop to 12th in the table.

The Saints also suffered the ignominy of another 9-0 defeat during that run at the hands of Manchester United during that run and after going down in defeat to a Newcastle outfit that ended the game with just 9 men on Saturday, boss Ralph Hassenhuttl will demand a reaction from his players in this game.

Wolves vs Southampton: Match Stats

It’s hard to look beyond Wolves for the home win in this game, given the Saints dreadful run of form in the lead-up to this clash. What’s more, the Midlands outfit have a strong home record in the FA Cup, going six ties unbeaten at Molineux in a run that stretches back to 2017.

Oriol Romeu will at least look to add some bite to the Southampton midfield here. The 29 year old midfielder is among the most competent tacklers in the Premier League this season, with only three players across the whole division winning more tackles than his total of 59 thus far.
