Wolves v Southampton: match preview

Wolves v Southampton: match preview

Southampton were excellent in their 4-1 stroll past Brentford and will arrive confident they can continue their rise up the table with another win at Molineux. However Wolves are also enjoying a nice run of form and will hope Roman Saïss’ departure to the Africa Cup of Nations does not harm their ironclad defence. Only 14 goals conceded after 19 games is remarkable and Manchester City are the sole side who have a better record with 13. Ralph Hasenhüttl will be meticulously planning how to break his opponents down and he can focus his side on this task as Wolves’ achilles heal is a lack of creativity. They have only scored 14 goals too and again only one side beats their tally. Norwich with eight. Graham Searles
