Beautiful footwork from Podence
Podence, who is still searching for his first league goal this season, has a lovely run down the right flank before dancing his way into the Saints penalty area. He can't quite make a strong enough connection on the ball and it's an easy save for Forster.
VAR Decision: Penalty not awarded for Wolverhampton Wanderers [Nélson Cabral Semedo] was confirmed
Romeu challenges Semedo in the box but the Wolves man goes down too easily and the calls for a penalty are denied.
Positive play from Perraud
Perraud cuts in the left and sends a low drive towards the Wolves goal but Sa is there to deflect the ball behind for another Saints corner which again amounts to nothing. It's going to be hard to break down this defence.
First sign of pressure from Wolves
Beautiful work from Trincao sees Wolves make an impressive charge down the length of the pitch before the ball is released into the area and Lyanco comes in to send the ball over the crossbar and behind for a Wolves corner.

Composure from Sa
Sa nearly found himself in great danger with Broja in the area but unphased by the pressure, Sa wiggles his way out of the threat as Wolves start to gain some momentum in this game.
Bednarek continues despite knock
A worrying sign early on for Saints as Bednarek receives medical treatment for what appears to be a hamstring problem. It takes a moment but he finds his feet and after conffering with boss Hasenhüttl, he remains on the pitch for the time being.
Lyanco makes important tackle on Jiménez
With Saints keeping much of the possession in the opening stages at Molineux, Podence looks to monopolise on a loose ball from Ward-Prowse. He releases Jiménez but Lyanco makes a strong, decisive tackle to recover the ball.
Another corner for Saints
Just seven minutes into the game and Saints are already on their fifth corner of the match. Ward-Prowse delivers a wonderful ball into the box to find the head of Bednarek but Wolves do enough to get the ball away and behind for another Saints corner.
Early opportunity for Saints
Saints have started with intent at Molineux. Ward-Prowse goes in search of Romeu from the corner but Sa is there to make an important clearance for the hosts.
Podence receiving treatment
As Broja looks to protect the ball, a flailing arm to the head sees Podence require treatment early on. It doesn't take long for the Portugese man to get back to his feet and play resumes with a Southampton corner.

Prepare for this afternoon's contest with our Match Pack.12.45
We play another game, against a strong opponent, Southampton are also in a good moment, they are a team that can play in different ways. They are very good when they play a line of five, usually they play a line of four, but against Tottenham and Brentford they played five and can play with two or three midfielders."bruno lagewolves boss on southampton test
