It''s all change at the Villa, having sacked boss Tim Sherwood on Sunday. The ever-reliant Villa coach-turned caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald will be taking charge of the Villains as they travel down to the South Coast.
There are no real major absentees for Saints' opponents today, while Ronald Koeman will be without Sadio Mane, who bagged a one-match suspension after a quick double booking against Liverpool on Sunday, Shane Long and Florin Gardos.
Saints coach Koeman has typically used the Capital One Cup as a tool to build league momentum by playing strong starting XIs. However, he has indicated that he could well ring in the changes on Wednesday evening.
