Appearances can be deceptive. Southampton are winless in the league but recent performances, particularly last weekend’s 0-0 at Manchester City, have been as impressive as Ralph Hasenhüttl’s waistcoat. Wolves lack a cutting edge, having failed to score in four of their five league games, and while the whole world wants Raúl Jiménez to get that cathartic first goal since he returned from a fractured skull, it may be that Daniel Podence – who scored in the Carabao Cup in midweek – is given more minutes in attack. Two high-pressing teams that are struggling to find the net means one goal either way could settle this. Alex Reid
