Midfielder Stuart Armstrong maintains that Southampton have the quality needed to get their season back on track and can show it with victory in the Carabao Cup tie at Leicester tonight.

Saints boss Mark Hughes has found his position further under scrutiny after Premier League action resumed with a 3-2 defeat at Fulham on Saturday, leaving them in the relegation zone.

The only victory in the past 10 matches came via a penalty shoot-out win at Everton in the last round of the Carabao Cup.

Southampton will be looking to put themselves on the front foot again when they travel to the King Power Stadium for tonight's tie, which was postponed following the death of Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in a helicopter crash.

Armstrong scored both goals at Craven Cottage and said: "We have to learn from these games. Tuesday is a good chance to make amends, move forward and progress. The quality is there, and I feel we're better than the league position shows.

"We need to start turning those frustrating draws into wins."
