Fulham v Southampton - Fascinating Facts

Fulham v Southampton - Fascinating Facts

The magic of the FA Cup takes centre-stage this weekend with Fulham welcoming the Premier League side, Southampton, to Craven Cottage for a third-round tie.

Ahead of the fixture we`ve dug deep to come up with some interesting facts that you may find interesting.

• The last time Fulham welcomed Southampton in an FA Cup tie was back in 1999 when, in a third-round replay, Fulham edged into the fourth-round courtesy of a winner from Barry Hayles with five minutes of normal time left to be played.

• On the last four occasions Fulham have gone head-to-head with opposition from a higher division, at home, they`ve lost on three occasions the only exception being when Fulham beat Hull 4-1 in a 4th round tie last season.

• When Southampton come up against opposition from a lower league they invariably win, the Saints have won 17 of the last 18 ties.

• Third-round ties involving Southampton usually see goals scored, the last 6 ties have seen both sides score and with a total of 25 goals scored.
