Wolverhampton faces Southampton on Monday, November 23rd at Molineux Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Wolverhampton's last match was on November 8th on the road against Leicester City. In that match, Leicester City was able to take down Wolves by the final score of 1-0. Wolverhampton was on a bit of a roll before that loss, earning wins in three of its last four matches and a draw in the other. Wolverhampton is 4-1-3 on the year, which puts the club in 10th place in the Premier League standings. Wolverhampton got off to a slow start in the beginning of the Premier League season, but now Wolves has started to show signs of its 2019-20 club. Wolverhampton has scored eight goals and has conceded nine goals to its opposition, therefore Wolves has a -1 goal differential.
Southampton is coming off a 2-0 win over Newcastle United in its last match at home on November 6th. If there was any club that did not want to take a two-week break from the Premier League action, it had to be Southampton. Southampton was on fire, winning four of its last five before the break. Southampton is currently 5-1-2 this season, which is a surprise to many soccer fans. Southampton is in 5th place in the Premier League table, which is also a shock to see even only eight matches into the season. Southampton has scored 16 goals and has conceded 12 so far this season, giving the club a +4 goal differential.
The last time Wolverhampton and Southampton met was on January 18th of 2020. In that match, Wolverhampton was able to earn the road victory by the final score of 3-2. Wolverhampton has won three of the previous five meetings between these two clubs.
Wolverhampton is the favorite at home, but I cannot go against this Southampton club. Southampton is playing as a cohesive unit, which is very hard to find in the Premier League at times. I like Southampton to earn a road victory over an overrated Wolverhampton club (which is strange to say, considering Wolves is usually very underrated).
