Aiming to put one foot in the final of the EFL Cup, Southampton and Newcastle United renew hostilities at St Mary’s for the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday night.

Nathan Jones’s side stunned perennial champions Manchester City to make it to the final four, while the Magpies confidently dispatched Leicester City 2-0, and the two hopefuls will face off again on January 31 for the chance to meet Manchester United or Nottingham Forest in the showpiece match.

A comeback victory over fellow Premier League strugglers Everton last weekend continued to brighten the mood, but there was little joy to be had at St Mary’s on Saturday, where Ollie Watkins scored the only goal of the game in a 1-0 success for Aston Villa after a drone had halted play.

 

 

 

Referee Michael Salisbury was the target of Saints’ frustrations after another goal for captain James Ward-Prowse was ruled out, with Mohamed Elyounoussi adjudged to have fouled Jacob Ramsey, leaving the South-coast side rock bottom of the Premier League table.

The cups have been a welcome distraction for the Saints, though, as Jones’s side previously saw off Cambridge United, Sheffield Wednesday and Lincoln City to make it this far and are now bidding to reach their first final since 2016-17, where they ultimately lost to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

Somewhat bizarrely, Man City are the only team to have failed to score at St Mary’s in Southampton’s last 15 home matches, but Newcastle have hardly been ruthless in front of goal during the period of cold snaps.
