Mauricio Pochettino

Danny Fox is the only injury absentee with an ankle knock, though fellow left-back Luke Shaw may also be given the night off after passing a fitness test ahead of Saturday's 1-0 win at Liverpool.

Saints made nine changes to their starting XI for their previous appearance in the competition, a 5-1 win at Barnsley, and Pochettino could again be tempted to rotate against Sky Bet League One opponents.
