Sunderland boss Gus Poyet was delighted with their Capital One Cup win over Southampton.

The Uruguayan saw goals from full-back Phil Bardsley and substitute Sebastian Larsson clinch a 2-1 fourth round victory over Southampton at the Stadium of Light to set up another big date on Wearside next month.

Poyet's side will face Chelsea and said with a smile: "I suppose that's good news, yes?

"Look, they are the games I need to enjoy. In quarter-finals, you can't ask for any small team, you know you are going to get one of the big ones.

"It's going to be special for me - an official game against Chelsea is always very special - so I am looking forward to seeing Jose and company."
