Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Southampton Team News:

Southampton make the trip up to the Midlands as Saints take on Wolves at Molineux Stadium.

Recently promoted, Wolves have looked impressive since returning to the Premier League.

Last week, the Championship winners got a well-deserved 1-1 draw away at Manchester United, before being dumped out of the League Cup against Leicester City midweek.

Meanwhile, Saints suffered a one-sided defeat to Liverpool last weekend and will be hoping to bounce back in style.

Southampton will welcome back leading goalscorer Danny Ings after he was ineligible to face parent club Liverpool last weekend.

Mohamed Elyounoussi and Manolo Gabbiadini could also return, but Shane Long is expected to sit out with a toe injury.

Wolves could welcome back Ivan Cavaleiro after he recovered from a back injury.

A Premier League record could be equalled today if Wolves name an unchanged line-up for the seventh consecutive Premier League match.
