Southampton travel to Wolves on Saturday afternoon and meet a side in as rich form as themselves.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men followed up a 3-2 victory in extra time against Swansea with a 4-1 attack on Brentford in the middle of the week, making it three wins over the previous four while remaining undefeated at five. With that momentum behind them, however, they still have to overcome Bruno Lage’s Wolves, who have also won three of their previous four and are eighth in the table.
Expected to keep the 3-5-2 formation that worked so well in the middle of the week, here is the page that Hasenhuttl was able to set up.

Fraser Forster (GK) – Alex McCarthy is likely to remain unattractive due to injury, so Forster should continue as a replacement.
Lyanco (CB) – Returned from an attack by Covid-19 to start against Brentford last time and did well enough to have a new appearance here.
Jan Bednarek (CB) – With three goals in his previous five Premier League appearances, the great Poland is such a threat from death games.
Mohammed Salisu (CB) – Enjoying a great promotion, having started all but one of the Saints league games this semester.

Nathan Tella (RWB) – Tino Livramento would certainly start in the tailored full-back role, but in her continued absence, Tella should retain her place.
Oriol Romeu (CM) – A really consistent presence in the heart of the side and, after a good display last time, will inevitably start in midfield.
James Ward-Prowse (CM) – Undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s best performances this semester, the Portsmouth – born Southampton captain will of course start here again.
Ibrahima Diallo (CM) – Was excellent against Brentford in the middle of the week and will try to build on the assists he took as he will surely start again.
Romain Perraud (LWB) – Should start on the left hill again after a busy viewing last timeout.

Che Adams (ST) – Replaced the underrated Adam Armstrong to score a goal last – everything points to an Adam’s start here.
Armando Broja (ST) – Endured a small blow against Brentford but it should go well to play against Wolves and looked for a sixth league goal in the campaign after a wonderful performance last time.
