Meanwhile, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side make the trip to St Mary’s having did not win any of their last five matches altogether competitions.
Earlier within the season, Southampton had been made the laughing stock of the league, with some very poor displays. Especially their loss reception to Leicester,
that too for a record scorecard of 0-9 was an excessive amount of of a burden even for the foremost loyal of fans.
However, the team has made an inspiring comeback into form during the last several match-days,
and they even avenged their loss against the Foxes, by defeating the 2015-16 PL champions at their house , the fabled King Power Stadium.
By all means Southampton are slowly growing to be a team to be feared.
Since netting 3 times within the same half against City, Wolves have scored just twice in five matches altogether competitions,
which isn’t ideal before meetings with a resolute Southampton side and league leaders Liverpool.
Nevertheless, despite inevitably going into this game still feeling the consequences of Wednesday’s FA Cup defeat at Manchester
United, this close-knit squad has shown within the past that they’re capable of raising the sport when their backs are against the wall.
