Wolves welcome the Saints on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Leicester City, a result which has left Nuno Espirito Santo's side in ninth position.
After beginning the season with defeats to Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur, no-one would have predicted that Southampton would record 16 points from their next half-a-dozen fixtures.
However, the Saints are good value for their recent resurgence, mixing up professional displays with clean sheets alongside ruthless showings in the final third.
Hasenhuttl will demand more from his side, especially against such a well-organised Wolves side, but the South Coast outfit will be confident that they can add a sixth success in seven on Monday evening.
Although Wolves have had their moments this season, Nuno will have concerns about the development of a team which has needed to adapt to a couple of major departures.
While there was excitement following their first-half display against Crystal Palace, the West Midlands outfit barely laid a glove on Leicester in their final game ahead of the international break.
Nuno has previously suggested that he will move his side away from playing on the counter-attack, but supporters are unlikely to see a style change for a triple-header versus Southampton, Arsenal and Liverpool.
In a heavily-congested mid-table, one win can make all the difference, but Nuno will acknowledge that his side must raise their game during three tough matches if they are to avoid playing catch-up heading into the Christmas period.

Despite having to self-isolate over the international break, Conor Coady should be available to start in the middle of the Wolves defence.
Hasenhuttl is likely to name the same Southampton XI which started the game against Newcastle United.
Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Boly, Coady, Kilman; Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Marcal; Traore, Jimenez, Neto
Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Djenepo; Walcott, Adams
We say: Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 Southampton
Sensing an opportunity to keep pace with the leaders, Hasenhuttl will likely instruct his side to go on the attack at Molineux. However, Wolves are well equipped at playing on the break, and we feel that the home side will do enough to earn a point on home territory.
