SAINTS have been drawn away to Sunderland in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

It will be the third time this season Mauricio Pochettino's men have travelled to the Stadium of Light.

Saints fielded a below strength side and lost 2-1 in the Capital One Cup back in November, with the Black Cats having since gone on to reach Wembley in that competition.

Saints also drew 2-2 at Sunderland earlier this month, taking an early 2-0 lead in a game where Gaston Ramirez and Dejan Lovren were both stretchered off with ankle injuries.

While Saints were beating Championship strugglers Yeovil 2-0 in the fourth round yesterday, Gus Poyet's Sunderland were edging past non leaguers Kidderminster 1-0.

5th rd draw: Manchester City v Chelsea, Sheffield United or Fulham v Nottingham Forest or Preston, Arsenal v Liverpool, Brighton v Hull City, Cardiff City v Wigan, Sheffield Wednesday v Charlton, Sunderland v Saints, Everton v Swansea.
