Today's Predictions for Southampton vs Wolves

Premier League predictions ahead of a match between two of this season's relegation battlers, Southampton and Wolves. The visitors head into the match at St Mary's as the form side and favourite to secure all 3pts with the bookmakers following that impressive 3-0 destruction of Liverpool last weekend. Southampton sit bottom of the table as things stand and even a win this weekend won't take them out of the relegation zone.

Wolves to Win

Wolves have claimed wins in each of their last four league meetings with Southampton, including a 1-0 win at Molineux back in September. The Saints have lost four of their last six matches in all competitions and have the second-worst goal difference behind Bournemouth, while Wolves have won two of their last three outings in the Premier League and sit 5pts and five places clear of their hosts.

Daniel Podence to Score

We're backing Daniel Podence to prove his worth in front of goal this weekend., The Portuguese midfielder has emerged as a surprise goalscorer for Wolves this season and has played a big part in his club's move away from the relegation places in recent weeks. Podence has 5-goals in the Premier League this season, making him the joint-top scorer with Neves in the Wolves side. With 3-goals in his last six league games, you can see just why we're backing Podence to score at any time on Saturday.

How will the teams lineup for this Premier League match?

Southampton

The Saints made the trip to Middlesex to take on Brentford last weekend but will probably wish they had stayed at home. Goals from Mee, Mbeumo and Jensen saw Brentford claim an easy 3-0 victory over Southampton leaving manager Jones to question his players in the post-match interview. Larios and Livramento are both still out of action but Walker-Peters and McCarthy will be hoping to make their return to the first team very soon.

Predicted Lineup – Bazunu (GK), Bednarek, Perraud, Bree, Salisu, Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Lavia, Adams & Edozie

Wolves

Wolves put in one of their best performances of the season to thrash Liverpool 3-0 at Molineux last time out. An own goal from Matip got Wolves on their way to a comfortable victory with debutant Dawson scoring on his first appearance for the club. Ruben Neves finished off the goalscoring in style, linking up well with Traore in the 71st minute. Kalajdzic, Chiquinho, Boubacar Traore, Neto, Hwang and Lemina are all injury concerns for the visitors this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Sá, Dawson, Semedo, Kilman, Aït Nouri, Sarabia, Lemina, Neves, Nunes, Hwang & Cunha

Player to Watch: Craig Dawson

Wolves' new centre-back, Dawson, made the headlines by scoring against Liverpool on his debut for the club but what he really brings his new employers is experience and leadership.

It's always good to have defenders who can score goal and Dawson certainly fits into that category, not just in terms of his heading either as he is a smart finisher wth his feet from close range. However, it is the leadership and experience in Premier league back fours that are his true assets and that is something Wolves have lacked since allowing Coady to join Everton on loan.

If Dawson has another good game this weekend then that might just mean that Wolves come away from St Mary's with at least a point to show for their efforts and possibly, all three.
