Saints have Takumi Minamino back after being cup-tied in midweek, which Kyle Walker-Peters and Jannik Vestergaard are back to full fitness. Will Smallbone, Ibrahima Diallo and Michael Obafemi are all out injured though, while Theo Walcott is a doubt.
Wolevs are missing Daniel Podence in attack as well as long-term absentee Raul Jimenez. Willy Boly and Marcal are the defenders out, but Jonny at least returned from his ACL injury last week.
SOT – McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Minamino; Adams, Ings
WOL – Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Adama, Willian Jose, Neto
Another victory for Saints. Wolves don’t seem to have much cohesion or confidence in their best system at the moment and are still struggling to score goals. Saints 2-0 Wolves.
