Wolverhampton welcomes Southampton in the next round. The home field is a great advantage for the “wolf pack” to complete their 3-point goal.
Wolverhampton is temporarily ranked 8th on the rankings with 28 points won after 19 rounds. An achievement that shows their stability under new coach Bruno Lage. Solid and effective play is being shown by the players.
In the FA Cup, Wolves had just won a gentle victory over Sheffield United with 3 goals. At home, they have 4 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss. Although losing to Liverpool and drawing with Chelsea, the wolves created many difficulties for the opponent. Possessing an even force and an annoying playstyle is definitely helping Wolves to play impressively. Promising they will continue to defeat Southampton like in the previous 2 confrontations.
Southampton have not shown much this season when they are 14th in the rankings. They just had to work hard to get past Swansea City after 120 minutes of playing in the FA Cup. Not playing too badly, but the Southampton players proved to be very faint.
In total, the last 9 matches Southampton only won 1 win, this achievement is enough to see their fading. Neither attack nor defense could maintain the necessary stability. The match broke out and the match proved to be a stalemate. Therefore, in front of a team that plays firmly and is able to take advantage of very good opportunities like Wolves, the possibility that Southampton players will have to hold a grudge is very high.
