Southampton failed to climb to third place after a 1-1 draw with Wolves At Molineux. For Southampton, this would have been their fourth back-to-back had they actually won. Theo Walcott did put them ahead quite late in the second half in the 58th minute but Wolves answered when Pedro Neto equalized the score after coming off the bench. Putting and end the seven-match unbeaten run which Southampton was enjoying. Southampton was reeling without the injured Danny Ings but Walcott did fill his shoes successfully in the central striker’s role.
The goal was dripping in controversy as Stuart Armstrong walked away without a card after barging in Rayan Ait-Nouri and taking advantage of the situation Che Adams sent a low cross to Walcott who scored from a close-range to mark his first goal since he rejoined in October.
