Fresh off an impressive 1-0 win over Ronald Koeman's Everton, Southampton are looking to progress to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup against a tough test in Arsenal.

Southampton welcome back Sofiane Boufal and Steven Davis after they missed out on Sunday's win against the Toffees through varying ailments. But, Arsenal are missing two key players who looked set to appear in their League Cup run--Olivier Giroud and Mathieu Debuchy.

Southampton boss Claude Puel is hoping to win silverware in his first season in charge of the Saints.

"It's an opportunity to try to win something," the Frenchman said. "The last game against Everton was a fantastic game, with good intensity and a good physical level."

Stats Zone:

Arsenal's last three home League Cup games against Premier League opposition have ended in defeat, with just one goal scored.

The Gunners have progressed from just one of their last five League Cup quarter-finals, last doing so in 2010-11 with a 2-0 win over Wigan.

Arsenal have lost just one of their seven League Cup meetings with Southampton.

Southampton have been eliminated at this stage of the competition on each of their last seven attempts.

No player has had a hand in more EFL Cup goals than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this season (four - three goals, one assist).

Oxlade-Chamberlain has also scored each of Arsenal's last three goals in the EFL Cup.
