Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

Wolves will be looking to extend their current pick of form this week as they take on Southampton in the FA Cup fifth round. The match schedules for Thursday at Molineux Stadium, with a kickoff at 8:30 pm.

While Wolves have a record of five points from their last six outings in the top flight, while the Saints lost five successive league fixtures.

Ralph Hassenhult saw his side capitulate against Manchester United. However, he remains intent on shaking around their season. Nevertheless, the Saints have won three of their last eight matches across all competitions. Luck went against them in their defeats to Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

There is a need for improvement when it comes to the defensive third for Hassenhult. The recent arrival of Takumi Minamino provided some attacking form, but he will take no part in this contest. Danny Ings heads into the clash, having scored only one goal in his last ten appearances.

On the other hand, the lack of goals remains a major hustle for Nuno Espirito this season since the injury to talisman Raul Jiminez. Despite their defensive and attacking woes this season, the side can boast of Arsenal and Leicester City’s victories.

However, two wins in their last 11 league matches is a worrying trend for Nuno Espirito. Wolves reached the fifth round with victories over Crystal Palace and Chorley.
