After an underwhelming start to 2021, Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s only saving grace has been Southampton’s FA Cup run and their hopes of lifting their first major trophy since 1976 are still alive.
The Saints advanced to the semi-finals of the competition courtesy of a 3-0 success at south coast rivals Bournemouth just before the international break, with a brace from Nathan Redmond and a strike from Moussa Djenepo booking their trip to Wembley later this month.
Southampton now turn their attention back to the Premier League, where they currently sit 14th in the table and seven points above the relegation zone.

Since beating Liverpool in their first league game of 2021, the Saints have lost 10 of their last 12 in the Premier League, picking up fewer points this calendar year than any other top-flight side.
If Hasenhüttl’s men can continue that form into the rest of the campaign, then perhaps they can dispel what has been a bit of a catastrophic middle section of the season.
Southampton’s poor run of league form has left them level on points with today’s opponents, and while both sides will still be looking cautiously over their shoulders, it is highly unlikely that either will find themselves dragged back into the Premier League relegation battle, with the points gap back to the relegation zone now standing at seven.
A little like Southampton, Burnley entered the international break on something of a high, beating Everton 2-1 to end a run of five games without a win.
That victory came as something of a shock, particularly given Burnley’s poor record away from home, winning just four times this season and amassing the fourth lowest points total in the league.
