Saints aim to oust Wolves again
Southampton deservedly dumped Wolves out of the FA Cup in midweek, and the Saints look ready to rub salt in Wanderers’ wounds with a Premier League victory over them on Sunday.
Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side were much the better team on Thursday evening at Molineux, where second-half goals from Danny Ings and Stuart Armstrong fired Southampton into the FA Cup quarter-finals at Wolves’ expense.
Ings’s appearance on the scoresheet was a welcome one after the England man had gone five games without a goal, and though his dry spell ending effort was a fortuitous one, the centre-forward should have renewed confidence on Sunday.
Off colour Wolves continue to struggle
Wolves continue to look a shadow of their former selves this season, and their performance against Southampton on Thursday was the latest in a long line of limp displays.
Languishing all the way down in 14th position, Wanderers have won just once in ten attempts in the league, while we have to go all the way back to November to find their last victory on the road.
Stick with Southampton on Sunday
Southampton completely outplayed Wolves in the teams’ FA Cup clash on Thursday, and with their dominance established, they are worth backing to send the Wanderers packing again on Sunday.
Wolves have collected just two points from their last six tests on the road, and with the walls starting to close in around Nuno Espirito Santo, they look set for another disappointing jaunt this weekend.
The Saints’ superb performance in the cup should shake them out of their rut, and having lost four league games on the bounce, our 2-0 correct score prediction tips Southampton to get their campaign back on track.
Wolves failed to find the net in four of their last six away assignments, and having kept them at arm’s length on Thursday, Southampton look ready to claim another clean sheet en route to three points.
