Nathan Jones is yet to make waves in the Premier League since taking the reins at basement club Southampton in early November, with his new side losing all four league matches under his tutelage and conceding 10 goals in the process.

However, the Welsh boss has had more success in grinding out results in the cup competitions, as the Saints have come from behind to beat Lincoln City and Crystal Palace by 2-1 scorelines in the EFL Cup and FA Cup respectively, beating the latter away from home on Saturday.

James Ward-Prowse has developed a reputation for scoring spectacular free kicks, but even he will admit that his equaliser at Selhurst Park was intended as a cross. Nevertheless, that strike helped the Saints grow into the game before Adam Armstrong robbed the dawdling Vicente Guaita and tapped what proved to be the winning goal into an empty net midway through the second half.

An FA Cup fourth-round tie against Championship outfit Blackpool awaits Southampton later this month, but they must first turn their focus back to the EFL Cup as they prepare for the daunting task of going toe-to-toe with Man City, a side that they have beaten only once in their last 15 meetings.

Prior to their fourth-round win over Lincoln, Southampton comfortably beat Cambridge United 3-0 in the first round before scraping past Sheffield Wednesday on penalties following a 1-1 draw.

The Saints head into Wednesday’s fixture having been eliminated from seven of their last eight EFL Cup quarter-final ties, although they were successful in their most recent last-eight contest, beating Arsenal 2-0 in 2017 before reaching the final where they lost out to Manchester United.
