Sunday football in the Premier League opens with two teams struggling to get to grips with the 2021/22 season, as Southampton host Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Saints have been somewhat improved of late after a poor start to the campaign from a defensive standpoint, but four successive draws leaves them in 15th without a win in the league – Ralph Hasenhuttl has overseen an upturn in fortunes in one half of the pitch, but after successive goalless draws he’ll hope for more in the final third, too. That said, a 0-0 stalemate with Manchester City last time out was a definite hard-earned point which Saints – or indeed most teams – would happily take.

As for Wolves, they are yet to get firing under new boss Bruno Lage, managing just one win in their five games so far, with defeats in all the rest. They are one place and point back from their hosts on Sunday afternoon, following a home loss to Brentford last weekend. Wolves at least produced a stirring comeback in midweek against Spurs in the Carabao Cup, but exited regardless after a penalty shootout.

3 mins: Early chance! Southampton are cut open straight away as Jimenez feeds Semado down the right hand side and the wing-back has tonnes of space to run into. The former Barcelona man strikes towards goal but it’s tipped away by McCarthy.

The Saints keeper then safely gathers the resulting corner.

Wolves have won on each of their last two visits to St Mary’s. That’s ominous for Southampton, who have struggled in front of their own fans so far this season.

Meanwhile, Wolves’ only victory so far in the Premier League came on the road against Watford.

Very little to split between these two sides this afternoon to be honest. Neither have been particularly impressive so far but both may feel slightly aggrieved that they have not picked up more points based on their performances.

A chance for both teams to make a statement today.
