Wolverhampton Wanderers face Southampton in this Premier League clash.

When is the match, and kick off time?

The match is on Saturday 29th September 2018, and kicks off at 3:00pm UK time. The venue for the match is Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton, West Midlands).


It would be wise for Wolverhampton Wanderers to play intricately and avoid taking too many shooting chances at range, as Southampton have an excellent record of defending those chances. Wolverhampton Wanderers won't be able to rely on their individual players in this game, as Southampton have been good at managing these threats in previous games. Southampton may not be able to play their usual style of possession football, as Wolverhampton Wanderers have shown a good ability to steal from the opposition. Southampton will hope that Wolverhampton Wanderers attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings. Wolverhampton Wanderers should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Southampton in the air.
