Southampton will host Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Monday at St. Mary’s Stadium.
Southampton has lost their previous three Premier League games, including a 3-1 loss to Liverpool in their final game before the World Cup.
However, last week saw Nathan Jones achieve his first success as Southampton’s head coach in the EFL Cup, as the Saints defeated Lincoln City 2-1 to move to the competition’s quarterfinals.
On Wednesday night, Charlton Athletic defeated Brighton in the EFL Cup unexpectedly. After a scoreless draw, the League One team won on penalties.
The Seagulls have had a solid start to the season despite losing their most recent Premier League match at home to Aston Villa. They are currently ranked seventh in the standings.
