Southampton have been drawn against Leicester City in the Emirates FA Cup semi-finals, taking place at Wembley Stadium next month.

Having cruised into the last four with yesterday's 3-0 win over south coast rivals Bournemouth, Ralph Hasenhüttl's side will now head to the capital to take on their Premier League counterparts.

The last of the weekend's semi-final bouts, the Foxes secured advancement on Sunday night with a 3-1 win over Manchester United, with a brace from Kelechi Iheanacho and a Youri Tielemans strike enough to see off the Red Devils.

Saints have reached the semi-finals for just the second time in the last 18 seasons, last reaching the same stage in 2017/18 where they were eliminated by eventual champions Chelsea.

Both semi-finals will take place over the weekend of Saturday April 17th, meaning Southampton's home Premier League match against Crystal Palace will be given a revised date.
