- Under 2.5 goals has landed in all five of Wolves’ Premier League games this season.
- Southampton and Wolves have scored just six league goals between them this term.
- Southampton have drawn their last four Premier League matches.
Saints remain winless despite promising performances
Southampton picked up a well-deserved point at Manchester City last weekend and while they have been rightly lauded for some of their performances this season they are still searching for their first league win of the campaign.
Despite this, four top-flight stalemates in a row has left them with four points from five games so far and they played out another draw in midweek as they beat Sheffield United on penalties. We could be in for more of the same when they host Wolves on Sunday.
Wolves missing scoring touch
The visitors were also involved in a high-scoring 2-2 draw in midweek but punters shouldn’t expect a repeat of these two four-goal thrillers, especially where Bruno Lage’s side are concerned.
Wolves have scored just two Premier League goals since the Portuguese manager arrived and both came in their single victory against Watford. Each of their other four games have ended in defeat, although they have only conceded five league goals in total this season.
Goal drought expected at St Mary’s
It’s hard to see this one being one for the neutrals. Southampton and Wolves have scored just six goals between them in the Premier League this season and all of Wolves’ league games have seen fewer than three goals, so I’m backing under 2.5 on Sunday.
With Wolves failing to score in four of their five league games this season, I’m also opting for a third consecutive goalless draw for Southampton as a correct score prediction.
Southampton predicted lineup: McCarthy; Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters; Elyounoussi, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond; Adams, Armstrong
Wolves predicted lineup: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal; Traore, Jimenez, Trincao
- Two of Southampton’s four draws in the Premier League league so far this season have been goalless
- Wolverhampton’s last seven Premier League away days all had under 2.5 goals
