The Reds return to their Merseyside base on the back of a 1-0 extra-time victory over Chelsea in the EFL Cup final, while the Saints were beaten 2-1 by Millwall in Saturday’s Championship match.

Wednesday sees Liverpool bid to go beyond the fifth round of the FA Cup for just the second time in the last nine seasons – on the only previous occasion that they have done so since 2015, the 2021-22 crown travelled home with them.

Arsenal and Norwich City have already falled to Liverpool’s FA Cup excellence this year, and the beating of Chelsea also represented a fourth victory in a row across all competitions for the Premier League leaders, who ended a seven-game run without a clean sheet by keeping Chelsea at bay.

Meanwhile, Southampton slumped to a third defeat from four Championship matches, and their second successive home loss in the division , when Millwall travelled south on Saturday, with the 2-1 defeat leaving the Saints five points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.

Amid their Championship struggles, Russell Martin has professed that a midweek FA Cup tie – let alone one away to Liverpool – is the last thing that his side needs at this moment in time, but following their victories over Walsall and Watford, the latter coming through a replay, the Saints cannot escape their knockout duties at Anfield.

After two successive progressions from the fifth round in 2020-21 and 2021-22, Southampton fell at this stage to giant killers Grimsby Town in the 2022-23 edition, but Che Adams’ consolation strike against Millwall at least saw the Saints extend their exceptional scoring streak to 30 successive matches across all competitions.

Liverpool vs. Southampton Head to head

In the 95 previous meetings between these two teams, Liverpool have claimed 49 victories while Southampton have won 24, and they have drawn in 22. Southampton have scored 100 goals and conceded 159 in the process.

Southampton Team News

On-loan Newcastle winger Ryan Fraser required crutches after sustaining a knee problem in the first half of Southampton’s loss to Millwall, and Martin has already ruled him out of the fifth-round tie.

Samuel Edozie and Kamaldeen Sulemana should be drafted back into the attacking line out wide, while Joe Rothwell could be a contender to freshen up the midfield pack in the possible absence of Flynn Downes.
