Soccer – Southampton face crucial week

Southampton manager Claude Puel says the next three games could be pivotal in terms of their aspirations for the remainder of the season. Saints travel to Norwich in the FA Cup on Saturday, then face Liverpool in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup in midweek before a trip to Burnley next weekend in the Premier League. "It's an important week because it's the future of our season," Puel told the club's official website. "We've got to play three games in a week in different competitions. I think at the end of this week we will know the calendar and I hope it is full, with many games, and that we can continue to play every three days. "Sometimes that is difficult, like over Christmas, but for the squad, for the team and players I think it's important to continue many games and continue to improve." Southampton are 5/4 with bet365 to beat Norwich at Carrow Road.
