Sunderland AFC's manager David Moyes has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

Moyes was shown a red card in the 90th minute of Sunderland's EFL Cup tie with Southampton.

Afterwards Moyes was upfront about the altercation:

I was sent off for leaving my box and swearing at the fourth official. The problem was he chased me down the touchline. I swore at him and I shouldn't have done so I deserved to be sent off.

Sunderland have a tough test this evening against a Southampton side making good progress in both the Premier League and against European opposition.

Manager David Moyes thinks a continuing cup run would benefit Sunderland, but says they'll have their hands full on the South Coast:

I've been impressed by Southampton. I think a lot of people have by, I think outside the top 3 or 4 teams at the moment, I think Southampton might be the name people are talking about just now and rightly so.

Moyes: League Cup is chance to show we're improving

David Moyes insists Sunderland are still improving despite failing to register a single league win this season.

Moyes' side travel to Southampton on Wednesday in hope of advancing into the quarter finals of League cup. The manager says that facing the Saints is a great opportunity to showcase they've turned a corner.

Moyes said

I think it's a game we can do with because I think it's another game to show we are improving, to show we're doing better and we have been slightly.

We go to Southampton who are playing very well. We drew there earlier on (in the season), if we can do that then we get extra time and penalties."
