After an away win over Everton (2:1), Southampton again began to show poor play. In the next two appearances in the English championship, the team failed to score points. The club lost on the home court to Aston Villa and, on the road, was crushed by Brentford. Against the Birmingham team lost by a 0:1 margin, and against the Bees, the Saints could not resist (0:3). Southampton is still at the bottom of the EPL table.
Wolverhampton's progress is evident. In the last three rounds of the EPL, the club failed to gain points only in the away clash with Manchester City. The Wolves defense could not hold back Erling Holand, who scored a hat-trick (0:3 defeat). The club outplayed a fairly tough West Ham side 1:0. At Molineux, Wolverhampton beat Liverpool, scoring three unanswered goals. The Wolves are 15th in the EPL table with 20 points.
Expert Betting Tips
Southampton is time to give at least two positive performances if the club does not want to fall out of the struggle for survival. The Saints have the worst home performance of the current Premier League campaign. Of the available 30 points, Jones' team has earned only 6 (1 win, three draws, and six defeats) at home. The poor form of Southampton can be used by Wolverhampton, who are gradually regaining their best form after the arrival of Spanish specialist Julen Lopetegui. The game ahead is expected to be quite tense. There will be a lot of fouls, and it is likely to continue the trend with the cards.
