Southampton vs Wolves Team News

Southampton are unbeaten at home this season with two draws. They have looked good at times, but not good enough for a full 90 minutes to win games at St. Mary’s Stadium. Stuart Armstrong and Jack Stephens are both ruled out of the fixture due to injuries. Theo Walcott is likely to miss the game with an injury of his own. William Smallbone is nearing a return to the first-team following a severe knee injury. He is back in training, but not quite ready for Premier League action.

The Saints have scored four goals this season, but the goals have been spread around between James Ward-Prowess, Adam Armstrong, and Mohamed Elyounoussi along with an own goal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers coach Lage will be without five players. Pedro Neto remains ruled out with a serious knee injury. Jonny Castro is still struggling with a knee injury as well. Yerson Mosquera, Rayan Ait Nouri, and Hugo Bueno are all ruled out of the match.

Lage has a big decision to make in attack. Hwang Hee-chan has looked brilliant since arriving on loan from RB Leipzig. Raul Jimenez continues to be picked as the team’s starting striker. He has struggled to rebound from the devasting skull fracture he had last season.
