Sunday football in the Premier League opens with two teams struggling to get to grips with the 2021/22 season, as Southampton host Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Saints have been somewhat improved of late after a poor start to the campaign from a defensive standpoint, but four successive draws leaves them in 15th without a win in the league – Ralph Hasenhuttl has overseen an upturn in fortunes in one half of the pitch, but after successive goalless draws he’ll hope for more in the final third, too. That said, a 0-0 stalemate with Manchester City last time out was a definite hard-earned point which Saints – or indeed most teams – would happily take.

As for Wolves, they are yet to get firing under new boss Bruno Lage, managing just one win in their five games so far, with defeats in all the rest. They are one place and point back from their hosts on Sunday afternoon, following a home loss to Brentford last weekend. Wolves at least produced a stirring comeback in midweek against Spurs in the Carabao Cup, but exited regardless after a penalty shootout.

90+5 mins: Jimenez nearly seals it! He robs Salisu of possession and tries to whip it beyond McCarthy but the Southampton keeper stands tall and blocks with his body.

One last throw of the dice now for the hosts…

Southampton 0-1 Wolves

90+4 mins: The crowd urging Southampton to play it long but they are keen to build from the back, even at this late stage.

Romeu eventually knocks it upfield and it’s the centre-back Bednarek in the penalty area who flicks it on but no-one is there!

90+2 mins: Yep, six minutes added on.

Jimenez fights and battles with two Saints players on the touchline and wins a priceless throw-in for his side.

Southampton earn themselves a free-kick moments later though. Everyone is on the edge of the Wolves box but the ball in from Ward-Prowse is uncharacteristically poor. It drifts out off the head of Bednarek.

Here we go again. Another Saints wave creeps over the halfway line. At least SIX added minutes expected to be added on here.

85 mins: Some treatment being given to Nelson Semedo. Bruno Lage barking some instructions to Joao Moutinho on the touchline. He knows how important it is that they see this out.

Ralph Hasenhuttl looking a little helpless at this moment.

83 mins: Southampton’s fans half-heartedly appeal for a handball inside the Wolves penalty area but there is nothing in it.

Oh, that’s a chance though! Livramento pulls the ball back from the left and it finds its way to Armstrong six yards out but he can’t direct it on target!

Looks like this moment has won the day for the visitors…
