Just three points separate Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton as they prepare to face off at Molineux on Monday night in the Premier League. Wolverhampton Wanderers are ninth in the league table with 13 points from 24 possible. They go into matchday 9 on the back of a 1-0 away loss to Leicester City, which ended a four-match unbeaten run.
Southampton sit fourth after eight games with 16 points from 24 possible. The Saints are playing good football under manager Ralph Hassenhuttl. Southampton are now six games without defeat and won on matchday 8 versus Newcastle United, 2-0, to record a third straight win.
The Saints could go top of the table with a win and results going their way elsewhere at the end of the weekend. However, Southampton are most likely to be still in the top four, chasing first place, in spite of a win at Wolverhampton.
Winning at Molineux will be easier said than done. Wolves were unbeaten against Southampton in 2019-20, claiming four points from six possible. Both teams are playing well heading into matchday 9. Can Southampton keep up the pace with the rest of the top four or will Wolverhampton Wanderers pull level on points with a win?
Wolves vs Southampton Betting Odds
Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton played out a 1-1 draw at Molineux last season. Both goals came in the second half as neither side could find a way to end the stalemate. Danny Ings 53rd-minute goal was cancelled out by a Raul Jimenez penalty eight minutes later. The two sides were evenly matched throughout the 90-minute contest.
Wolves claimed an incredible 3-2 win at St. Mary’s in the reverse fixture. Southampton went into halftime with what felt like a commanding 2-0 lead thanks to Jan Bednarek and Shane Long. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team came out of the break fired up and hit back three times to win. Pedro Neto scored and Jimenez found the back of the net twice – once from the spot – to give Wolves the amazing comeback victory.
Since Wolverhampton Wanderers were promoted in 2018, they have lost to Southampton just once in four games. That loss came in the 2018-19 season at St. Mary’s. Wolverhampton Wanderers have taken four points from six in games played at Molineux against Southampton, outscoring their opponent 3-1.
Santo’s team are unbeaten in three straight home matches and have taken seven points from 12 possible overall at home in 2020-21. Southampton are on a three-game unbeaten run on the road. They have taken seven points from 12 possible on their travels.
Wolves vs Southampton Team News
Santo has just two players ruled out for Monday night’s match. One of those players is Jonny Otto. The wing-back is a long-term absentee after suffering a severe knee injury in the Europa League last August versus Sevilla. Centre-back Conor Coady is set to miss the game as well. He had to withdraw from the England squad due to a positive COVID-19 test. He is now in self-isolation.
Rayan Ait Nouri is a doubt heading into the weekend due to a muscle strain. He has played well for Wolves since earning a chance in the team. Defender Leander Dendoncker is also a doubt due to a knee issue.
Southampton’s hopes of making Europe took a massive hit on matchday 7 against Aston Villa as striker Danny Ings suffered another knee injury. He has since undergone surgery to repair the damage and is ruled out for up to six weeks. Joining Ings on the sidelines is William Smallbone, who has a thigh muscle injury.
Still, summer signing Mohammed Salisu is not fit to play for Hassenhuttl. The summer transfer from Real Valladolid has quickly turned into a bust and he hasn’t even played a match for the club. The good news for Hassenhuttl is that Theo Walcott, James Ward-Prowse, and Ryan Bertrand all look likely to play a part on Monday night as they recover from their respective injuries.
Wolves vs Southampton Prediction
Three straight league games between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton finished with both teams finding the back of the net. Southampton are flying high and even without Ings, should have confidence to score goals and take the game to Wolves. Two of the last four games played by Southampton finished with both sides finding the back of the net.
Raul Jimenez scored three goals in two games for Wolverhampton Wanderers versus Southampton in 2019-20. Two of his three strikes came from the penalty spot in two exciting matches. Jimenez has scored four goals in eight games for Wolves this season. He has tallied 50% of the team’s goals and there is quite a bit of reliance on the Mexican hitman currently at Molineux.
Although Wolverhampton Wanderers are masters of low-scoring matches, Monday night’s game should bring out their shooting boots in a game Southampton will be desperate to win. Two of the last three league games between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton finished with over 2.5 goals scored. That includes their 3-2 thriller at St. Mary’s Stadium last term. Two of Southampton’s last four league matches finished with more than 2.5 goals.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are overachieving in actual points this term. They have an actual point total of 13.0 and an expected point total of 8.44. Timely goal scoring and solid defence has helped Wolves claim points. They did look sluggish against Leicester City on matchday 8, but the international break may have helped with the fatigue many players showed on the day.
Southampton are also overachieving with an actual point total of 16.0 and an expected number of 11.56. They have played well in attack with 16.0 goals scored compared to an expected goal figure of 9.35.
Monday night’s game should be a close, cagey affair. Wolverhampton Wanderers could end Southampton’s winning run. Ings’ injury should catch up with Southampton as they drop points to Wolves at Molineux for a third straight season with a loss.
