FA Cup success

A convincing win against Wigan to reach the FA Cup semi final in Mark Hughes's first game in charge as Saints boss. Chelsea next up at Wembley.

A real statement of intent as we reached the FA Cup semi-final by beating Wigan 2-0 at the DW Stadium. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg fired in from a second-half corner, shortly after Christian Walton had saved his header.

Wigan's keeper then made an outstanding save from Manolo Gabbiadini's penalty after Dan Burn had brought down the striker. Cedric Soares slotted past Walton to confirm the win in stoppage time.

The dream start for Hughes, who replaced Mauricio Pellegrino as Southampton boss this week after he was sacked with us one point above the Premier League relegation zone.
