Wolves v Southampton: match preview

on 21 November 2020

Southampton showed by beating Newcastle and stretching their unbeaten run to six games that they are a force to be reckoned with even without Danny Ings, who is expected to be missing for at latest another month after undergoing knee surgery. But the outcome against Wolves could be determined by the fitness of Ryan Bertrand and James Ward-Prowse, since Bertrand will need to be at his best to subdue their wide attackers, and Ward-Prowse has the set-piece prowess to exploit the weakness that Jacob Murphy capitalised on when Newcastle drew at Wolves in October – if it has not been addressed in training.
