The Saints had now lost 1,400 games in the Premier League and Football League. They failed in their attempt to win four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2016.

Comments:

League position: 6th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now conceded the first goal in 16 games so far in this Premier League season; more than any other team and including the last seven in a row. Wolves avoided losing three consecutive away league games for the first time since March 2016 in the League Championship. They scored three or more goals in an away game in the Premier League for the first time since a 3-1 win at Everton on 2 February 2019. Wolverhampton Wanderers were awarded a penalty after 65 minutes following a VAR review.
