Wolverhampton Wanderers – Southampton
The newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers are aiming to celebrate a third win since the start of the season, hosting Southampton in a match from the 7th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash in our winning soccer predictions for today.
Wolverhampton are getting a lot of credit for the way they perform since their promotion to the Premier League. The manager Nuno Santo is doing a fantastic job with his team. The Wolves are currently 10th in the league standings with 9 points won, which is very good for a newcomer in the divisiion.
Since the start of the season, Wolverhampton won twice, made three draws and suffered just one defeat. They managed to handle teams like Manchester City and Manchester United, enjoying two consecutive wins before their draw with United at the Old Trafford in the previous round. The Portuguese veteran Joao Moutinho scored Wolves’ only goal at the Theatre of Dreams, which was enough for Wolverhampton to win a point.
Southampton survived in the Premier League last season, but now they are ahead of another tough battle. Right now the Saints are 14th in the league with 5 points, being on 3 points above the 18th Newcastle and the danger zone. Things could change very fast for them, if they start losing points again on a regular basis.
In their last game the Saints suffered their third defeat since the start of the season. Mark Hughes’ team visited Liverpool at the Anfield Stadium, but they were left without any chances against the current leaders in the Premier League.
These are our winning soccer predictions for today for the Premier League game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton on Saturday afternoon. We believe that Wolves have the upper hand here. They look like a very solid team since their promotion and they are pretty strong at home, too. It will be tough for Southampton.
