Enzo Maresca’s league leaders travel to the south coast for a 14:00pm (UK) kick-off, and will be hoping to extend their unbeaten run in the competition to ten matches.
But the hosts will also come into the tie brimming with confidence having won their previous home game 6-1 against West Ham.
In the previous fixture between these two sides, our Young Blues came out on top with a hard-fought 2-1 win at the Academy Stadium.
With this in mind, Enzo Maresca's side will know they need to be at their best once again to pick up another three points.
