What Trueform says for Wolves vs Southampton
Southampton struggled against Liverpool last weekend but had previously been playing well enough to suggest they can hold their own versus Wolves.
Wanderers have only suffered one defeat in six games since being promoted to the Premier League, although the goals haven’t exactly been flowing.
On the overall balance of the Trueform ratings, 5/2 for a draw is our first Wolves vs Southampton prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves followed up 1-0 wins over West Ham and Burnley by picking up a well-deserved point at Manchester United.
A fine strike from Joao Moutinho in the 53rd minute cancelled out Fred’s first-half opener and Wanderers could have won at Old Trafford but for the performance of David de Gea.
Nuno Espirito Santo, whose side have also drawn 1-1 against champions Manchester City this term, expressed his pride in what he had seen from his players.
He said: “I’m proud of the way we played – the way we defended, organised, putting bodies in front of the ball, and the way we created, produced our chances. We played the way we wanted to play.”
Wolves will not be overly-concerned with going out of the EFL Cup to Leicester on penalties in midweek, although that was another occasion when chances went begging.
Last Wolves EPL line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Diogo Jota, Moutinho, Jimenez, Costa.
Wolves are likely to revert back to the same side which has started their previous six league games. Ivan Cavaleiro and Leander Dendoncker have yet to feature in this competition, but both played in the EFL Cup in midweek and are available.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton manager Mark Hughes admitted his side struggled to get a handle on Liverpool and never recovered from going behind too early in a 3-0 loss at Anfield.
He said: “We aren’t the first, we won’t be the last, who aren’t able to cope with the attacking threat they have.
“We were unfortunate with the opening goal, a ricochet off a couple of players and it ends up in the back of the net.
“You obviously want to start well at Anfield and that was a setback. I thought 3-0 was harsh, but the second half was clearly a damage-limitation act.”
However, Saints had previously picked up a useful 2-0 win at Crystal Palace and led Brighton until a stoppage-time penalty made it 2-2.
Having loan star Danny Ings back available after he was unable to play against parent club Liverpool is a huge boost, with the striker netting in three of his last four games.
Ings to open the scoring in a 1-1 draw is quoted at 40/1 and that scorecast completes our Wolves vs Southampton betting tips.
Last Southampton line-up: McCarthy, Soares, Vestergaard, Hoedt, Bertrand, Targett, Romeu, Lemina, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Long.
Forward Shane Long is a major doubt because of a toe problem, but both Manolo Gabbiadini and Moi Elyounoussi should be available after returning to training.
WOLVES 0-0 Leicester (1-3 on pens)
Liverpool 3-0 SOUTHAMPTON
Head-to-head: Southampton 0-2 Wolves
