23rd November 2020 – 21:00, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Wolves and Southampton will wrap up the 9th round of the Premier League on Monday evening. The hosts search for a victory that can propel them to the European qualification spots, while the away side wants to continue its unbeatable run.
Match Preview & Team News
Wolves currently sit in the middle of the table, but they are only three points behind the top four. Leicester City ended their four-match undefeated streak, leaving them in the 9th spot. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side has trouble converting their chances into goals, as Wolves netted only eight times so far in the season. On the other hand, the defense is doing well, and it’s one of the tightest in the competition. After the opening defeat in the campaign against Manchester City at home, Raul Jimenez and the lads haven’t lost at their ground in the following three games. A potential victory from this one could see them advancing on the table and boosting their confidence ahead of the tough schedule.
Southampton is one of the biggest overachievers so far in the season, as the visitors sit in 4th place. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side is on an impressive run as Southampton won five times and drew once on the past six occasions. That streak launched them just two points away from the top of the table. Although the visitors are not so tight in the back, Danny Ings and his teammates from the final third are among the most efficient teams in the competition. After the initial 1:0 defeat against Crystal Palace away from home, they picked up seven points from the next three outings. The visitors are full of confidence, and they want to continue the run, although their top goalscorer Danny Ings will be sidelined for this clash.

Goals Market Prediction
