Sunderland take on Southampton on Saturday 15th February, 2014, with kickoff at 12:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.

Every player and manager wants to win the FA Cup, but some of them have more leisure and liberty to focus on a competition that doesn’t bring a lot of filthy lucre to the winner, even if there is still a degree of prestige attached. With Sunderland fighting for survival in the league the home side might be forced to rest a few players today, but Gus Poyet does like this cup, and might go hell for leather anyway.

Southampton have a couple of key injury concerns that might shackle them a bit today, but this will still be a very good contest.
