Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Southampton betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Following Tuesday night’s momentous victory, will Southampton win again?

In mid-week, despite falling behind early, the Saints battled back to beat Chelsea 2-1 at St Mary’s.

Roméo Lavia with a rocket of an equaliser, his first goal in senior football, before Adam Armstrong bundled home the winner in first half stoppage time.

Despite having a whole half of football to respond, Chelsea barely threatened as Southampton stayed defensively resilient.

This was a statement victory for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s youthful team who are starting to build decent form.

The Saints had previously come from a goal down to beat Leicester, having come from two behind to draw with Leeds United.

All of this leaves Southampton eighth, targeting back-to-back victories for the first time since February.

Wolverhampton Wanderers meanwhile continue to find goals hard to come-by.

On Wednesday night, Wolves were held to a goalless draw by AFC Bournemouth at Dean Court.

The xG figures, while only a guide, tell a story; Wolves racked up a figure of 1.74 to the Cherries’ 0.37.

This means, having failed to win any of their first five, Bruno Lage’s team kick off in the relegation zone.

Also, given that they’ve scored only twice this season, Wolves have now netted just 76 goals in their last 82 Premier League games, an average of 0.93 goals per match.

Failure to win here would make it the second time in four season that Wanderers have failed to take three points from any of their first six league matches, although they did finish seventh in 2019/20.

Will Molineux be celebrating a much-needed success, or can Southampton start to build momentum?
