Wolves struggled for results in the early stages of the season but have been quietly picking up points for some time now, with Bruno Lage‘s side currently eighth in the table, just three points behind seventh-placed Manchester United, so they could also be considered to be in the top-four race.
The 2017-18 Championship winners have picked up seven points from their last three league games, winning at Brighton & Hove Albion and Man United, in addition to sharing the points at home to Chelsea.
Wolves also progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday courtesy of a 3-0 success over Sheffield United, with Lage’s side set to face Norwich City in the next round at the start of February.
The home side have won their last two Premier League matches against Southampton, including a 1-0 success at St Mary’s earlier this season, with Raul Jimenez netting the only goal of the game.
Wolves finished a disappointing 13th in the Premier League last season, but Lage has made a big impression at the helm this season, and another victory on Saturday would boost their European hopes.
Wolves will be missing Yerson Mosquera, Pedro Neto, Jonny Castro and Hwang Hee-Chan this weekend through injury, while Willy Boly and Romain Saiss are in action at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Adama Traore continues to be linked with a move away from Molineux and is therefore unlikely to be considered for a start in the final third, with Daniel Podence and Trincao set to line up alongside Jimenez.
Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are both in impressive form in midfield, while Saiss’s absence at the back could open the door for Leander Dendoncker to feature in a three-man defence.
As for Southampton, Valentino Livramento and William Smallbone will miss the contest through injury, while Kyle Walker-Peters remains a doubt due to COVID-19.
Moussa Djenepo is unavailable due to his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations, while Alex McCarthy remains a doubt due to a thigh problem, but Armando Broja should overcome a head injury to start.

Che Adams scored off the bench against Brentford last time out and could now come in for a start in the final third, but Hasenhuttl is again expected to stick with a 3-5-2 formation.
