‘Lo Celso’s Magic’

Host Ricky Sacks was joined by Lee McQueen along with Richard White MBE and Jamie Weir from Sky Sports as we reviewed the FA Cup draw against Southampton.

Sofiane Boufal’s late equaliser gave Southampton a fully-deserved FA Cup fourth-round replay against Tottenham after an entertaining encounter.

Saints’ manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and Spurs counterpart Jose Mourinho made FA Cup statements of intent by selecting strong line-ups – and their teams delivered a game high on quality, chances and passion. Spurs looked on their way into the fifth round just before the hour, when Son Heung-min crowned a superb break with a low finish from the excellent Giovani lo Celso’s pass.

Southampton, however, had a succession of chances to equalise, with man of the moment Danny Ings having a rare off day in front of goal and squandering several opportunities. Ings never let his head drop for a second and his tireless approach was rewarded when he set up Boufal for a thumping finish high past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris with three minutes left.

We also discussed Steven Bergwijn still expecting to complete a transfer worth around €30M to Spurs during the upcoming week despite the commotion around his PSV departure.
