Southampton v Wolves match preview | premier league


Appearances can be deceptive. Southampton are winless in the league, but recent performances, especially last weekend’s 0-0 at Manchester City, have been as impressive as Ralph Hasenhüttl’s vest. Wolves lack the advantage, having failed to score in four of their five league games, and while the world wants Raúl Jiménez to score that cathartic first goal since returning from a broken skull Daniel Podence – who scored in the Carabao Cup midweek – may be given more minutes on offense. Two top teams struggling to find the net mean that a goal either way could fix the problem. Alex reid
