Foot Predictions shows Sunday’s Premier League clash between Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.
Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers will face St Mary’s on Sunday afternoon with just two points separating the teams in the Premier League standings.
The clubs meet for the second time in three days after Santos won in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Thursday night.
Southampton went into the knockout stage with Wolves after four consecutive defeats in all competitions, a streak that included 12 goals conceded at Manchester United and Newcastle United.
However, Santos did not have to leave the first gear to end their recent streak of goals. Danny Ings and Stuart Armstrong took the Saints to the quarterfinals of the FA Cup.
Ralph Hasenhuttl he was naturally delighted with the performance, which puts his team in a positive attitude before trying to end his streak of five Premier League losses.
While progress in the FA Cup may become a priority in the future, Hasenhuttl believes that some victories will be enough to put Southampton back on the top seven.
Despite being an equal distance between the top six and the bottom three, there is a feeling that the Wolves should start to focus on avoiding a relegation battle.
Although four points have been won in home games against Arsenal and Leicester City, the lack of threat in the attack is hampering any improvements made in defense.
Nuno Espirito Santo was criticized for resting several important players for Thursday’s meeting with Saints, the idea is that they will be well rested for this league game.
However, in addition to achieving an innocuous elimination from the FA Cup, Nuno’s must assume the responsibility of giving Southampton all the momentum that precedes this event.
The wolves did not score against a team that plays with 11 players in games of five and a half, this being the goal Vitinhathe 35-yard attack on non-league Chorley.
