Recent Form 

The Saints produced a historic result against Manchester City in the previous round, the struggling side winning 2-0 against far superior opposition. Even though it wasn’t a full strength City XI, Southampton were clinical and defended as a team which is the most important thing when playing a side that is better than you. 

Newcastle fans will be buzzing that Southampton were able to get the better of the Citizens as it has made their route to the final significantly easier.  

The Magpies last won a major trophy back in 1955 when they beat Manchester City 3-1 in the FA Cup final, and the resurgence of this Newcastle side is one of the main narratives this year, so a winning the League Cup would certainly send out a message to the rest of the league.

Both Teams To Score (No) 

Southampton are definitely the underdogs here. They’ve only won one of their last eight league matches (W1-L7), as even this was against a poor Everton side.  

Newcastle’s troubles in front of goal could come back to haunt them as they’ve scored just one goal in their last 360 minutes of play (Isak v Fulham in the 89th minute).  

However, Newcastle have conceded just one goal since the 29th October, which was against Southampton in a 4-1 win, and because of this we think that at least one team to fail to score is the best bet here.
