Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Bruno Lage won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.
Also, a draw statistic of two in two meetings is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Bruno Lage’s men wishes for ultimately. With three points (0W, 2L and 3D), they are established in eighteenth position in the League having drawn three meetings and lost two games.
Wolves have drawn two games of their two League matches at home this season.
Victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers would take their points tally to 6 so far this season.
A solid defensive team
Wolves have conceded four goals so far, so their defence can be considered to be strong. Wolves have only managed to score two goals. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Rayan Ait-Nouri (1), Ruben Neves (1), and Daniel Podence (1), this is a poor return.
Wolves’s squad will likely be depleted of one of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
Southampton’s campaign so far has seen them accrue seven points this season
Chelsea were beaten 2-1 at St. Mary’s Stadium, the last time that Soton played.
Also, Soton keep finding ways to win, having secured two victories in their last three meetings is astonishing this season. With seven points, they currently sit ninth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draws having won two games, drawn one game, and lost two fixtures.
Soton will travel to Wolves with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one win and one defeats.
A victory for Southampton would put them on 10 points.
Soton are missing two players through injury or illness. This will affect Ralph Hasenhuttl’s selection choices significantly.
