Wolves vs Southampton: Can Saints keep streak alive on Monday?

Southampton will travel to the Molineux on Monday night to take on the Wolves who have given Saints fit since their return to the Premier League.

This will be a matchup of two top-half sides when they meet on Monday in what should be an exciting match.

The last time these two met the Saints went up 2-0 early and the Wolves fought all the way back to win 3-2 in a thriller. The way both sides have been playing they will believe they can get a result in this match but the Saints may be the ones playing with more confidence.

The Saints will be missing Danny Ings again but they will still believe they have more than enough firepower to find the back of the net.

Let us take a look how both teams could win.

How Wolves Will Win

Wolves have been solid defensively but are struggling to score goals currently. They have only scored 8 goals this season but with that said they have still managed to take 13 points so they know how to get a result.

They will test Southampton defense on the counter as they know if they can break the press they will have the numbers against the back four and likely have easy chances at net.

I believe if Wolves were to get a result they need to strike first and not allow Southampton to score the first goal of the match.

How Southampton Will Win

The Saints are in fine form and are flying high even without leading scorer Danny Ings. Che Adams will look to be the man again to lead the Saints to victory on Monday. His partnership with Theo Walcott will be the key to their victory.

Adams is at his best when he is not only looking to score himself but setting up his teammates to score as well. He has fantastic vision and is simply a great passer for a forward.

This is a big match for Saints as they take on United after this. If they can get a result from one or both of these matches that could send a message to the rest of the league that this team is for

real.
