Southampton vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 14 February 2021
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
The Saints are easily the worst team in the competition at the moment. They are on a long losing run, and are conceding goals in huge numbers.
Their confidence is broken beyond repair after the repeated defeats and the countless goals.
It seems they have already given up on their top-tier hopes, and at present if they manage to avoid relegation, fans as well as players would count it as a win.
Meanwhile, the Wanderers appear to be finally making amends for their slow start to the season. They had a humbling first half to this campaign, and contrary to previous years, they are placed in the bottom half of the table.
They are trying their best now to get back to their earlier form. In the most recent weeks, they delivered good performances against the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester etc.
On top of that, they also have a good h2h record against Wolves in recent years.
By the looks of things, expect Wolves to have the upper hand this Sunday.
