Plenty of Southampton fans have been reacting to the FA Cup final semi-final draw, which had them matched up with either Leicester City or Manchester United.
The Saints made it through to the last four after defeating fellow south coast club Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday – Nathan Redmond netted twice while Moussa Djenepo bagged the other. After what has been a difficult campaign in parts for Ralph Hasenhuttl, they have the chance to win what would be just the second major trophy in the history of the club.
The draw for the semi-finals was made on Sunday. On one side, Chelsea will face Manchester City, while the Saints were drawn with the winner of the Leicester v Manchester United clash. In the end, it was the Foxes who progressed after beating the Red Devils 3-1.
Will Southampton beat Leicester?
Of course, Southampton have lost 9-0 to both those teams across the last two seasons. As such, when the draw result was shared on the Saints’ official Twitter account, it attracted plenty of attention from these Saints supporters.
Let’s see what the Saints fans had to say below
“I like this draw. It will be 9 nil double heaven for lazy journalists etc. It’s the perfect narrative for us as huge underdogs. If I was a player this would be huge motivation”
“The best we could have hoped for at this stage of the competition. On our day, we can beat anyone.”
“Either way big chance for redemption. Narrative time.”
“Wow a team who thumped us 9-0 or a team who thumped us 9-0. Journalists will have a field day”
“Thought 9 nil might get mentioned, took the BBC about 18 seconds!”
