The 2017/18 FA Cup semi finals continue at Wembley Stadium in London this afternoon as Chelsea take on Southampton.
The Saints have progressed from four of their previous five FA Cup ties against Chelsea, but lost the most recent encounter 5-1 in the third round in 2012-13.
Chelsea, however, are vying for six straight wins against the Saints in all competitions for the first time after they mounted a remarkable comeback from 2-0 down to win when the sides met in the Premier League last week.
