Portsmouth vs Southampton: What has been said?

Portsmouth boss Kenny Jackett said: “We’ve beaten two Championship sides to get through to this round and now we’ve got a big tie against a Premier League club.

“There’s obviously the added incentive of it being a local derby and that should only enhance what is already a very good atmosphere.

“This fixture hasn’t been contested for a number of years and that should add another edge to proceedings.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “The whole club and all the players are looking forward to this game. We know about how important it is for our fans and everybody.

“In every country there are important derbies, and this means players have previous experience, but I know this one is a very special one, because it is very long ago that this derby happened and this makes it so special for the fans.

“This means for us that we know that we can write a big history for every player who decides the game or who is in this team. We all know what it is about for the fans and we want to make them proud.”
