Liverpool legend Michael Owen has admitted worrying about Southampton at the start of the season was wrong.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side parted ways with Danny Ings; Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard over the summer; leading many pundits to fear they could be relegated unless replaced.
However; saints moved thirteen points from the relegation zone with a 4-1 win over newly promoted Brentford on Tuesday night.
And Owen expects Southampton to continue now in the second half of the season.
-That was a huge win for Southampton against Brentford on Tuesday; they are in good form. They’re not a productive side; so scoring four goals in one game is a good sign.” he told BetVictor.
“I was worried about Southampton; they struggled early in the season. However; they are now comfortably above the decline and can look to continue in the second half of the season.”
But while he admits he was wrong about Saints; he still predicts a defeat for Hasenhüttl’s side this weekend.
Owen said: “I’m not expecting many goals. Southampton have improved but I don’t think they’re quite up to Wolves’ level.”
He added: I see Wolves win 1-0.”
