Wolves vs Southampton predictions: Wolves line-up

Wolves travel to St. Mary’s to face Southampton on Saturday hoping to bounce back from the FA Cup heartbreak.

The Midlands outfit suffered FA Cup semi-final extra-time defeat to Watford, who stunned Nuno Espirito Santo’s men by coming from two goals down to win 3-2. Wolves will be eager to put their FA Cup disappointment behind and get a positive result at St. Mary’s at the weekend.

Southampton, on the other hand, are desperate for points at the moment as they lie just outside the relegation zone on 33 points.
