The Saints welcome Wolves to the St Mary’s Stadium in Southampton on Sunday for this Premier League match.

This is a reverse of the FA Cup fixture between the two sides in midweek, when Southampton travelled to ‘The Black Country’ and booked a place in the Quarter-Finals with a 0-2 win.

It was only Southampton’s second win in this head-to-head in the last 11 matches between the sides. Wolves have won 5 matches in that time, with the sides also playing out 4 draws.

Southampton vs Wolves: Recommended bets

Southampton beat Wolves in the FA Cup in midweek by a 0-2 scoreline. Another 2-0 victory for Southampton on Sunday is available at odds of 10/1.

Two of the last three Premier League matches between these sides have finished 1-1. Another 1-1 stalemate is available at odds of 11/2.

Southampton vs Wolves at St Mary’s Stadium has produced 9 goals in the last 2 matches between the clubs. You can back another high scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 13/10 for over 2.5 goals.

Danny Ings scored the opening and ultimately winning goal in the FA Cup tie between these sides on Thursday evening. The England international is the 10/3 favourite to score the game’s opener on Sunday once more. Or 11/10 on to bag a goal at any time during the game against Wolves.

Southampton vs Wolves: What are the betting odds?

The Saints have won only 1 of their last 5 home matches against Wolves in all competitions. However, they beat Wolves at the Molineux stadium in the FA Cup in midweek. Despite losing their last 5 league games, they start the match as the 11/8 favourite to win on Sunday.

Wolves have won on 3 of their last 4 visits to St Mary’s Stadium, including their 2-3 comeback win here last season. However, their recent poor form coupled with their defeat at the hands of Southampton on Thursday sees them start the match as the 21/10 underdog.

Two of the last three league matches between these sides have ended in a draw. Odds of 11/5 are available if you see Southampton and Wolves cancelling each other out again on Sunday.

Southampton vs Wolves: Match preview

While both sides look likely to finish in midtable, both are playing at relegation form. Wolves have picked up just 7 points from their last 10 matches; averaging 0.7 point per game (PPG). This would equate to a 27-point season over 38 games.

Southampton’s situation is even worse, averaging just 6 points over the same 10-game period which equates to 0.6 PPG or a 23-point season. They currently sit bottom the Premier League’s form table having lost all of their last 5 league games.

The underlying numbers don’t look any prettier for Southampton either. Six of their seven worst attacking performances in terms of expected goals (xG) this season have come in their last nine games. The Fulham match, in which they registered just 3 shots for a combined 0.12 xG, being the low-point of the season.

At the other end, 3 of their worst defensive performances have come in the last 5 games. Unsurprisingly, the 9-0 mauling at the hands of Manchester United was the low-point here.

This is a complete contrast to Wolves, whose underlying numbers are improving by the week. This is usually a strong indicator that results should soon follow.

The game could be won or lost by the goalkeepers. Wolves and Southampton are the two worst sides in the Premier League this season in terms of their goalkeeper’s performances versus post-shot expected goals. Wolves have conceded 5 goals more than expected, while Southampton have conceded 4.

With both teams looking to play themselves into some form and cut down on the goals they are giving up, a more cautious approach is expected than last season’s match. Thus, 101 Great Goals expects a single goal will possibly be the difference between the teams.

Southampton team news vs Wolves

Alexandre Jankewitz is still suspended following his shocking tackle at the start of the match against United that earned him a straight red card on his full debut for the club.

William Smallbone is out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury. It is likely he won’t feature again for Southampton in 2021.

Michael Obafemi has had a season heavily interrupted with injuries. He has only managed one 13-minute cameo appearance this season back in September. He is currently out having had surgery to correct the same muscle injury that prevented him from completing a loan move to Swansea last month.

Ibrahima Diallo has only played 438 minutes of league football for Southampton since his £13.5m move from Ligue 1’s Brest back in October. He has missed the last two matches due to a muscle problem and is expected to miss Sunday’s match also.

Theo Walcott appeared to put his injury woes behind him after joining Southampton, starting 15 Premier League matches in a row. However, he has missed the last 2 with a thigh injury and Ralph Hasenhüttl seemed to suggest he could be out for a while.

“Theo, there is a tendon involved so it is quite long so we needed to do something in this position.”
– Ralph Hasenhüttl, Southampton Head Coach

 

Mohammed Salisu has yet to feature for Southampton in the Premier League since his £10.8m move from La Liga’s Real Valladolid in the summer. He impressed on his debut in midweek in the FA Cup but the usual partnership of Bednarek and Vestergaard are expected to be restored here by Hasenhüttl.

Takumi Minamino was cup-tied for Thursday night’s FA Cup win over Wolves. Having impressed and scored on his debut against Newcastle last weekend, he is expected to return to the starting XI in place of Moussa Djenepo.

Raul Jimenez

Wolves team news vs Southampton

Wolverhampton have been struggling in attack since Raul Jimenez’s horrific head injury against Arsenal back in November. Nuno Espírito Santo is refusing to put a time on his return insisting the player will be given all the time he needs to make a full recovery.

Patrick Cutrone left the club for Valencia during the winter transfer window. Willian José, who was signed on loan from Real Sociedad to replace him, has so far failed to find the net in his 5 appearances for Wolves.

Daniel Podence missed the 0-0 draw against Leicester with a torn groin. He is expected to be out until the end of March with the injury.

Azerbaijan international striker Renat Dadashov, who was signed in the summer on loan from Grasshopper Club Zurich, suffered an ACL injury shortly after the joining the club preventing him from making an appearance for them so far.

That leaves Willian José, Fábio Silva and Pedro Neto as the only available attacking options who have just 9 Premier League goals between them in a combined 73 appearances.

Their injury woes aren’t limited to attacking players though. Both Willy Boly and Fernando Marcal are both ruled out with thigh and groin injuries respectively.

The return of Romain Saïss, Jonny Otto and Rayan Ait-Nouri should ease the blow though.
