FA Cup: Predicted Southampton XI vs Wolves

Southampton take on Wolves in the FA Cup fifth round on Thursday evening and will be hoping to put their recent poor form in the Premier League behind them.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side beat Shrewsbury Town and Arsenal to get to this stage, which represent their only wins in any competition since the early January win against Liverpool.

Wolves meanwhile, beat Crystal Palace before edging past non-league Chorley to set up this tie.

Southampton were boosted by the news that Kyle Walker-Peters is back fit for this game, with the right-back having been a real miss in recent fixtures.

Here’s how Football FanCast expects Saints to line up at Molineux, with five changes from the side that took on Newcastle…

Fraser Forster reclaims his place in goal as he is very much second-choice ‘keeper behind Alex McCarthy, but deserves the opportunity to play after keeping clean sheets against Shrewsbury and Arsenal.

Should KWP start?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There are change in defence, as Walker-Peters returns at right-back, which allows Jack Stephens to return to centre-back ahead of Jannik Vestergaard who has only just returned from injury. It looks as if he will partner Mohammed Salisu, who is reportedly in line for his debut on Thursday night.

There’s also one change in midfield as Moussa Djenepo replaces Takumi Minamino, who is ineligible for this game after featuring in Liverpool’s third-round win against Aston Villa.
