Wolves came up with an impressive performance to take more points off Manchester clubs. This time around, Nuno’s team picked up a well-deserved 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. However, the team was knocked out of the League Cup on penalties by Leicester City.
Southampton’s three-game unbeaten streak came to a crashing halt after a 3-0 loss against Liverpool. The result continued Mark Hughes’ poor record against the Reds.

Southampton are priced at 4.50 to win the match. Such a high price is justifiable for a team that has managed a solitary win this season. Wolves may not appear to be significantly better in terms of statistics, as they have bettered Saints by an additional win. However, results certainly do not tell the whole story in terms of Wolves, as they have given a strong representation of themselves in the first six games of the campaign. Their quality becomes apparent when learning about their 1-1 draws with both Manchester clubs. Our preview would choose a win for Wolves.

Correct Score odds
Wolves have been able to pick up three consecutive wins over Southampton, although the first two of those wins came almost a decade ago. This time around, the Midlands outfit have displayed a great deal of quality. Nuno has assembled an intelligent group of players who are able to find spaces and also take much better decisions on the pitch. Southampton rely heavily on Danny Ings and the team has tried to restrict opponents having their way. Our correct score prediction would go with a Wolves 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wolves have been a strong attacking force with Nuno especially favouring counter-attacks. The opportunities for counter-attack may be limited in the game since Southampton will sit back and defend deep. Our total goals prediction would stick with under 2.5 goals in the match.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez has been quite impressive for Wolves in terms of scoring goals or bringing others into play. It was not a huge surprise to see the forward involved in the equaliser scored by Wolves against Manchester United. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Raul Jimenez.
