The draw for the Fifth Round of the FA Cup has been made and Sunderland have been handed yet another home tie, this time against fellow Premier League outfit Southampton. It will the fourth time that the two sides have gone up against one another this season.
While Southampton have shown themselves to be a very good outfit during the course of the season, Sunderland are unbeaten against the Saints this season, and have already beaten them in the Forth Round of the Capital One Cup back in November, so they will surely fancy their chances of progressing through the tie, especially with it being played at the Stadium of Light.
Should the Black Cats make it through the tie, they will have a good chance of getting even further in the competition, after the four biggest teams remaining in the competition were drawn against each other. Chelsea will travel to Sunderland's Capital One Cup final opposition Manchester City, while Arsenal are at home to Liverpool.
The tie will take place on the weekend of the 15th and 16th of February.
