If there is one thing Southampton are consistent with, it would be inconsistency.

Saints' spectacular 2-0 aggregate win over Liverpool to reach the League Cup final provided one of the biggest highlights the fans have enjoyed in a considerable amount of time.

However, Southampton’s 5-0 home thrashing at the hands of Arsenal instantly brought those jubilant supporters crashing back down to earth despite the weakened team put on the pitch.

Claude Puel will hope his rested Saints will come up with the goods on Tuesday evening after suffering such an indignant loss to crash out of the FA Cup.

He is missing the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Jay Rodriguez and James Ward-Prowse—with the latter two picking up injuries in that stirring win at Anfield, while the former was forced off the pitch in Saints' 3-0 home win against Leicester City.

Swansea's new signing Luciano Narsingh is expected to make his Premier League debut on Tuesday evening. Meanwhile, Ki Sung-yueng returns to the bench after recovering from a calf injury.
