Blackpool will be hoping they can take another Premier League scalp at St.Mary’s this weekend after thrashing Nottingham Forest 4-1 in the previous round, despite only having 37% possession. The Tangerines, who currently sit in the relegation places in the Championship have struggled away from home this term, picking up just three wins from their 14 league matches on the road and face a Southampton side who will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Newcastle in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final.
The Saints have done well in cup competitions in recent seasons, reaching the semi-finals in both the FA Cup and the League Cup in the last three seasons, as well as being knocked out in the quarters to Man City last term. They have been very hit and miss under new manager Nathan Jones however, winning four and losing five of their previous nine matches across all competitions and may have their minds elsewhere.

Southampton vs Blackpool match stats
Since not being picked by Gareth Southgate for the World Cup, James Ward-Prowse has been in fine form since domestic football returned, showing the England manager just what he has been missing. The midfielder has scored five goals, including two fantastic free-kicks in his last eight matches across all competitions and has stepped forward with some much needed goals when Southampton have needed him the most.
With very high hopes of him from the Arsenal fans, Charlie Patino has been quietly learning his trade at Blackpool this season, putting in some impressive performances, not at least in the previous round vs. Nottingham Forest where he made more interceptions than any other player on the pitch (4). The 19-year-old has scored two goals and provided two assists in his 21 league appearances this term and has not been afraid to get stuck in, with no Blackpool player picking up more yellow cards so far in 2022/23 (6).
