Everton vs. Southampton Team News:

Southampton return to action just a couple of days after their 2-0 Premier League defeat to Wolves at Molineux on Saturday.

Saints manager Mark Hughes is expected to make wholesale changes to his side, with the likes of James Ward-Prowse, Matt Targett, Angus Gunn and Stuart Armstrong expected to be given a chance at first-team football.

Shane Long is out with a toe injury and it’s thought Danny Ings, Alex McCarthy and Nathan Redmond will be among those players rested.

Similarly, Everton are expected to field a team different to the one who beat Fulham 3-0 on Saturday.

Stats Zone (via Sky Sports):

  • This will be the 100th meeting between Everton and Southampton in all competitions but just the second in the League Cup - the Saints won 2-1 in the second round in 1971-72 in the only other meeting.
  • Southampton are winless in their last 14 away matches at Goodison Park against Everton (D4 L10), with all matches coming in the Premier League.
