Southampton v Derby

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Saints have failed to win nine of their ten home games this season
Expert verdict
Southampton have made steady progress under new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. However, the way in which the Saints let a 2-0 lead slip at Pride Park shows that the Austrian still has some work to do and upcoming good opportunities for Premier League survival may be more important than this replay. The cup isn’t top of Frank Lampard’s list of priorities this term, either, as he attempts to steer Derby into the top flight but their attacking style of play is unlikely to be tinkered with.
