Southampton defender Jack Stephens: We must be serious about FA Cup

Southampton defender Jack Stephens says they must treat their FA Cup tie with Huddersfield seriously.

Stephens believes it presents an opportunity for the club to continue their hot-streak.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, he said: “It's not my call and I don't know if the gaffer will ask me, but I want to play every game.

“I'm in a good moment and want to play as much as I can because it was really frustrating when I wasn't in the team.

“I want to play as many games as I can, especially when we are on this good run because it's important to keep building momentum.

“But we've got a fantastic squad with loads of fantastic players waiting for their chance.

“I've been in that position very recently, so it's important everyone gets the opportunity to show what they can do."
