‘Fraud’ – Southampton fans are desperate to see back of Cedric Soares

Southampton were knocked out of the FA Cup by Derby County on Wednesday night.

Despite taking a 2-0 lead, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side were eliminated on penalties, as they threw away their advantage in a crazy final 15 minutes.

Derby’s first goal of the night came from a superb Harry Wilson free-kick, after a relatively needless foul from Saints defender Cedric Soares.

Wilson then turned provider, assisting Martyn Waghorn as Frank Lampard’s side forced extra time.

And Derby held their nerve to win the subsequent shootout; the Championship side scored every one of their five spot-kicks, while Nathan Redmond missed for Saints.

Southampton fans were understandably upset with the performance, and have called on Hasenhuttl to attempt to cash in one specific player during the January transfer window.

While winger Mohamed Elyounoussi endured another difficult game – he has yet to score for the club – the 33-cap Portuguese was singled out, with one fan claiming they’d even accept an offer as low as £2million.
