The Saints have also recorded a pair of 2-1 victories at Everton and Palace away from home in 2023, although Newcastle are unbeaten in their last six meetings with Southampton at St James' Park, but Howe's charges cannot afford to dream of Wembley too early on Tuesday. Newcastle United EFL Cup form: Newcastle United form (all competitions): Southampton EFL Cup form: Southampton form (all competitions): Team News Newcastle did not sustain any fresh injury or suspension concerns in the first leg, so Howe should only be working without the trio of Jonjo Shelvey, Emil Krafth and Matt Targett for Tuesday's second leg, and the former is confirmed to be in talks with Nottingham Forest over a late January transfer either way.
A third-round elimination to Sheffield Wednesday in that competition this year means that Howe's side have had a full week to recover from their St Mary's endeavours, and they could now reach a domestic cup final for the first time since the 1998-99 FA Cup, which ended in final heartache to Manchester United. A gap of 47 years between EFL Cup finals - with Newcastle last reaching the showpiece game in 1976 - would be the longest in history should Howe's side finish the job on Tuesday, and a run of eight consecutive clean sheets at home makes them firm favourites to do just that. In contrast, there were no clean sheets to be had at St Mary's when Southampton welcomed fellow coastal side Blackpool for an FA Cup fourth-round tie on Saturday, but a brace from the unlikeliest of sources sealed a narrow 2-1 win and a spot in round five for Nathan Jones's crop.
