The Will Grigg pie complete with FA Cup on its crust

And the goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Cedric Soares also give Hughes, four-times an FA Cup victor as a player with Manchester United and Chelsea, a chance to end this season with happier memories of the famous old competition.

The Latics of League One have an excellent recent record in this competition, having won it in 2013, but are as big as 60/1 (61.0) with SportPesa to lift the trophy again this year.

It was certainly a positive first game for Hughes and will give the Saints plenty of belief for after the global break when they will be looking to get themselves out of the bottom three away at West Ham. Sometimes the players' view is totally insular: it's a bit like they are in their own bubble and you have to understand that.

"There is good quality, good traits, good behaviours which we can work on".

"Second half I thought the game was quite scrappy, although Southampton certainly grew into the game". Jacobs then flashed in another cross which Grigg should have anticipated better, before the half time whistle gave Southampton some much-needed respite.

"You can't ask for any more than four games against four Premier League teams and the Man City game will live long in the memory".

For all Wigan's dominance, summed up by 10 corners to Southampton's zero, the first half was desperately short of clear-cut chances. "It's a massive disappointment to go out so close to Wembley but the focus now is promotion".
