These two sides played each other in a League One fixture just three years ago; both sides have come a long way since then. Norwich City are still awaiting their first league win of the season after a summer spending-spree on the likes of Leroy Fer and Ricky van Wolfswinkel. Southampton have England striker Rickie Lambert at their disposal after the powerful forward kept his place in the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers in September.
The match is finely poised with both strike forces in fine form after Southampton put five past Barnsely in the Capital One Cup and the Canaries went one better with six against Bury.
