In home matches the Cherries still lack stability, as recently they have been alternating between victories and defeats. So, in the previous eight fights in all tournaments, they lost three times, achieving at the same time five victories, including a successful match in the FA Cup against Crowley during this period, which ended with a score of 2:1.
Reaching the quarterfinals of the prestigious English tournament is already a great success for Bournemouth, as the last time the team climbed so high in the FA Cup was back in 1957. Last year the Cherries were eliminated in the 1/16 finals, losing 1:2 to Arsenal. In the current tournament they have already passed, besides Crowley, such rivals as Oldham Athletic (4:1) and at the previous stage they defeated Burnley (2:0). It should also be noted that the defeat by the Gunners last year is the only one in the FA Cup in the last four home matches, three of which ended in victories.
The staffing situation at Burnley is not easy. There are six players in the infirmary at once: David Brooks, Adam Smith, Lewis Cook, Junior Stanislas, Lloyd Kelly and Shane Long. Jefferson Lerma is serving a suspension.
This season is not easy for the “Saints”. Southampton started quite powerfully and were among the leaders of the championship, but the abundance of injuries knocked down the team, as a result of which it rapidly rolled down. In the Premier League, Ralph Hasenhuttl's men have lost ten of their last 12 matches, having achieved just one victory over outsider Sheffield United (2:0). As a result of such a performance the “saints” have already slipped to 14th place in the Premier League standings.
The only outlet that pleases Soton fans this year is the FA Cup, where in recent years the team has not played very well. In the previous two seasons, Southampton did not advance further than the 1/16 finals, but a year earlier reached the semifinals, where they gave way to Chelsea (0:2). In the current draw Ralph Hasenhuttl's charges have already left Arsenal (1:0) and Wolverhampton (2:0) behind and started with a victory over an opponent from the lower division, Shrewsbury Town (2:0)
