Southampton News and Form

Southampton have still some pressure on them as they are only five points above the drop zone. A good win in this one and they will probably find themselves safe at the end of the season. Last time out they lost at home against Liverpool by a 3-1 scoreline, after having taken the lead in the game. It was another drastically improved performance from Southampton though. Southampton have collected a win in three of their last five league games, two of those three successes coming at St Mary’s. Southampton have only taken four home victories all season (D6 L6) but they have been producing much better there recently. They are currently on an 11 match scoring streak on home soil in the top flight.

Southampton have produced an average of 1.25 goals per home game in the Premier League this term. 69% of games at St Marys have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Southampton have picked up a clean sheet in 19% of home fixtures, with both teams having scored in 75% of all of Southampton’s home games. Of their wins on home soil this season, three of the four have been by just the one-goal margin. In nine of 16 home games, this season Southampton have managed to open the scoring. Still, there are only three teams with a worse  home record in the top flight than Southampton.

Wolves News and Form

Wolves looked to be cruising to an FA Cup final appearance last weekend, as they were leading Watford 2-0 at Wembley with 10 min to goal. But then they crumbled under a late comeback by the Hornets, Wolves suffering an extra time defeat. That will likely have taken quite a bit out of them mentally, because it was such a disappointing loss after being in such a strong position. There is also the big physical toll that it may have taken on them. Away from home, this season in the Premier league Wolves have produced a W5 D5 L6 record.

They have failed to win any of their last four out on the road, losing two of those. Wolves have come up with an average of exactly a goal per game away from home this season, conceding an average of only 1.2, so they have been tight at the back. Just 31% of their away games have gone above 2.5 goals. Wolves have picked up a clean sheet in only 12% of their away fixtures. They are currently without a clean sheet in any of their last 12 on the road. 69% of the away goals that Wolves have scored have been in the second half of games.
