Odds: -125

Wolverhampton Wanderers are clearly not a team who are going to be relegated from the Premier League this season, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s team having already drawn against both Manchester clubs this season.

Wins against Burnley and West Ham have also given them points on the board and Wolves have a very settled team who are going into battle each week, with a three-man central defence allowing Matt Doherty and Jonny to pile forward as wing backs and support the other attacking players.

Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are excellent ball-playing midfielders and we firmly expect them to overcome a Southampton side who are fairly modest by comparison, with the Saints already looking reliant on Danny Ings to score goals.

Mark Hughes saw his team beaten easily at Anfield and that followed a collapse when leading 2-0 against Brighton, with the visitors likely to put up a defensive rearguard at Molineux although it’s hard to counteract such a powerful attack.

In their last home match, Wolves piled forward at every turn, with the Wanderers having a Plan B up their sleeve in the form of Adama Traore who always seems to look dangerous when performing the cameo role.

Southampton have only won one match this season and that was a 2-0 triumph against a Crystal Palace side missing Wilfried Zaha, with the visitors looking at a season of struggle this season.
