Southampton manager Claude Puel takes his side to Anfield on Wednesday night for the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final against Liverpool.

The Saint take a 1-0 first leg lead to Merseyside thanks to a well executed finish from Nathan Redmond, although the former Norwich man could have easily bagged a hat-trick.

The French manager, who watched his side dispatch champions Leicester 3-0 at the weekend, will know that if they avoid conceding more than one then a place in the February final at Wembley is theirs.

Saints winger Nathan Redmond celebrates putting his side ahead in the first leg.

Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to see his side turn the tie on it’s head, having lost in the final to Manchester City in his first season at the club.

Both sides have had packed schedules in the last two months, with FA Cup replays, the League Cup and Premier League to handle.

With that in mind Puel has been chopping and changing from game-to-game, and that is likely to continue at Anfield.

Here are THREE Saints players the Frenchman should drop on Wednesday night…
