PREMIER League legend Michael Owen has admitted that he was wrong to worry about Saints earlier in the season as he makes a prediction for tomorrow’s Wolves clash.

The ex-Liverpool and Real Madrid forward turned pundit had earlier in the season said he was concerned about Saints’ fortunes.

Like many pundits, the exodus of senior stars Ryan Bertrand, Jannik Vestergaard and crucially forward Danny Ings led to many touting Saints for a relegation battle.

Instead, they sit 13 points clear of the drop zone – the same number of points they are short of the Champions League spaces.

Ahead of Ralph Hasenhuttl’s trip to the Molineux, Owen told BetVictor: “That was a huge win for Southampton on Tuesday against Brentford, they’re in good form.

“They aren’t a prolific side, so to score four in a game is a good sign.

"I worried about Southampton; they were struggling earlier in the season. They are comfortably above the drop now though and can try and kick-on in the second part of the season."

However, despite this Owen adds that he does not think it will be a happy day of hunting Wolves in the Black Country for Saints.

He continued: “I’m not expecting a lot of goals. Southampton have improved but I don’t think they are quite at Wolves’ level. I can see a 1-0 Wolves win."
