Just as it seemed this might prove a stretch too far for Wolves, they mustered the strength to launch a spirited second-half fightback to earn an extraordinary comeback victory. Raúl Jiménez, their talisman, was at the double after Pedro Neto had fired in eight minutes after the interval, at which point Southampton were two goals to the good. The roar that emanated from the away end said everything for Wolves but the manner in which the hosts capitulated will have been deeply concerning for Ralph Hasenhüttl, whose side were perhaps guilty of getting giddy.
