They now embark on a favorable run and will be keen to start off with a win.

After holding free-scoring West Ham United and Manchester City to goalless draws, the Saints lost to Wolves. Raul Jimenez shrugged off two defenders to score late in the game. Southampton have not looked sharp going forward and are missing the services of Danny Ings.
