Very strong from Hasenhuttl, who clearly fancies this one!

Saints are boosted by the return of Kyle Walker-Peters, while Jan Bednarek makes his 100th appearance for the club.

SUBS: Lewis, Vestegaard, Stephens, Finnigan, Chauke, Watts, Tella, Nlundulu, Adams

It’s a 3-4-3 set-up by Nuno, who hands a start to former Liverpool starlet Ki-jana Hoever, who sealed an exciting move in the summer.

A youthful forward line sees Vitinha – who scored a screamer in the last round – feature alongside Fabio Silva and England youth star Morgan Gibbs-White.

STARTING XI: Ruddy; Kilman, Saiss,, Dendoncker; Otto, Neves, Moutinho, Hoever; Vitinha, Fabio Silva, Gibbs-White.

SUBS: Patricio, Ait Nouri, Neto, Willian Jose, Coady, Semedo, Traore, Cundle, Otasowie

And welcome to a very chilly Molineux stadium.

Temperatures have been plummeting all day, and I personally don’t envy the players heading out in these conditions.

Still, they’re be much warmer than those limited numbers in the stands…

A place in the quarter-finals of football’s oldest cup competitions awaits the winner of this time.

Team news coming up in just a moment.
