Wolves have lost just one of their last 11 league games against Southampton (W6 D4) and have found the net in each of their last 10 against Saints.

Southampton are winless in their last five away league games against Wolves (D3 L2), with their last such triumph being a 6-0 win in March 2007.

Wolves are looking to complete their first top-flight double over Southampton since 1971-72, while they last won three in a row against Saints in the top tier in October 1970.

Only Manchester City (13) have conceded fewer Premier League goals this season than Wolves (14). Excluding penalties, Wolves are the only side yet to concede a goal from a set-piece situation in the Premier League this term.

15 of Wolves’ last 16 Premier League wins have been by a margin of just one goal, with the exception being a 2-0 victory at Watford earlier this season.

Southampton are looking to pick up back-to-back Premier League away wins for the first time since June 2020, following their 3-2 win at West Ham on Boxing Day.

None of Wolves’ last eight Premier League games have seen more than one goal scored (3x 1-0 wins, 3x 0-0 draws, 2x 1-0 defeats), with only Burnley having a longer such run in the competition (9 between April 2015 and August 2016).

No side has scored fewer first half goals than Wolves in the Premier League this season (5). Indeed, Bruno Lage’s side have netted as many goals in or after the 80th minute this term as they have in the opening 45.

Wolves’ Raúl Jiménez has been directly involved in five goals in his six Premier League appearances against Southampton (4 goals, 1 assist) – against no side has the Mexican been involved in more in the competition.

Hwang Hee-Chan is Wolves’ highest goalscorer in the Premier League this season with four goals – no side has a lower scoring top scorer so far this term.
