Nathan Redmond’s goal in the reverse fixture on 31 August gave Norwich their first league win of the season and ended Southampton’s unbeaten start to the campaign.
Norwich’s only top-flight win at Southampton in the last 10 attempts came on New Year’s Day 20 years ago when Chris Sutton scored the decisive goal.
Five of the last seven meetings in all competitions between Southampton and Norwich have ended as a draw (one win each).
The Saints have only won one of their last eight home matches in the Premier League: 1-0 against West Brom in January (W1, D3, L4). They were unbeaten in their first six games of the season at St Mary’s.
All but eight of their 42 points this season have come against sides in the bottom half of the table.
They are 14 points and seven places better off than at the same stage last season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have relinquished 15 points from winning positions this season – the joint worst record in the division along with Saturday’s opponents Norwich.
Norwich are the only team Southampton have failed to score against in the league since Pochettino took over as manager.
Norwich are unbeaten at home in 2014 but they have lost their last four Premier League away matches and are winless in the last six.
The Canaries have not scored more than once in a league fixture in 14 attempts since winning 2-0 at West Brom three months ago. They have only scored eight goals in that period and their overall tally of 22 goals is better only than that of Crystal Palace (19 goals).
They are winless in 14 Premier League away matches in March since a 3-0 win at Nottingham Forest in 1993 (D2, L12).
Record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel has now played 1015 minutes in the Premier League and managed only four shots on target. His only goal came on the opening day of the season.
