Southampton 3 – 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Highlights
Venue : St. Mary’s Stadium
Goal : 2′ Nathan Redmond 1 – 0
They have controlled possession since kick-off and now they have the lead.
Sims, making his first league start of the season, breaks down the right side and then crosses low into the box where Redmond gets ahead of Saiss and finishes from eight yards out.
Goal : 28′ 1 – 1 Willy Boly
That’s how you attack a header! Textbook from Boly.
Moutinho curls in a corner from the right and Boly leaps above two defenders and powers a header into the corner from 10 yards out.
Goal : 30′ Nathan Redmond 2 – 1
What a response from Southampton.
Sims plays in from the right side for Ings, who slips a ball through the centre of defence for Redmond. It looks like it might be offside but Coady is playing him on, and Redmond produces a fine finish to dink it over Patricio as he goes to ground.
Goal : 71′ Shane Long 3 – 1
This could be a huge goal for Southampton.
Yoshida deserves plenty of credit as he tries an overhead kick from a corner, gets up after it’s blocked and knocks through for Long, who flicks into the net from six yards out.

Man Of The Match :
- This will be just the second time Southampton will host Wolves in a Premier League match, with the only other such meeting coming in September 2003; Saints won 2-0 thanks to a James Beattie brace.
- After 17 matches without a victory (P17 W0 D7 L10), Wolves have beaten Southampton in each of their last four meetings in all competitions, keeping clean sheets in their most recent three.
- Only Aston Villa (42) and West Ham United (44) have lost more Premier League games against newly-promoted sides than Southampton (37), who have lost five of their last six such matches (W1).
- Southampton have dropped a league-high 23 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, 15 of which have come in games at St Mary’s.
- Southampton have won five of their 12 Premier League games so far in 2019 (D3 L4). They only won six in the whole of 2018 in the competition (P37 W6 D13 L18).
- Wolves haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 Premier League away games, and are without a win in their last four on the road (D2 L2).
- Southampton striker Charlie Austin has scored in two of his three league appearances against Wolves (two goals), including in his last home match against them for Burnley back in November 2012.
- Wolves’ Raul Jimenez has been directly involved in 19 Premier League goals this season (12 goals, 7 assists). The last non-British/Irish player to record 20+ goal involvements for a promoted side in the competition was Peter Odemwingie for West Brom in 2010-11 (15 goals, 7 assists).
- Raul Jimenez has been directly involved in 48% of Wolves’ 40 Premier League goals this season (12 goals, 7 assists) – only Eden Hazard (49%) has been involved in a higher share of his team’s goals.
- Southampton’s Shane Long scored just his second Premier League goal of the season in his 20th appearance against Liverpool last time out. He last scored in back-to-back games in the competition in May 2016.
