Key storylines & star players
Eddie Howe's side has performed well above expectations this season, mounting a serious top-four challenge one or two years ahead of reasonable expectations. Getting to - and winning - a final in the same season would merely be icing on the cake for Howe, who took over the Premier League's 19th-place side (5 points from 11 games) from Steve Bruce in November 2021.
Saints reached the League Cup final in 2017, but were somewhat controversially beaten by Manchester United at Wembley Stadium. Southampton have won more cup ties (6 of 7) than PL fixtures (4 of 20), which goes a long way toward explaining why Nathan Jones' side sits rock-bottom of the PL table with just 15 points.
