Not since 1980 have the Hammers lifted the cup, with only one appearance in the last-eight achieved in over ten years. But, David Moyes’ side are enjoying a fine season and went deep into the Carabao Cup.
Southampton reached last season’s semi-finals and yet are enduring a longer dry spell in the FA Cup, which they last won in 1976.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has put together a very solid run of four wins in five matches ahead of the game, having claimed a 3-2 win at London Stadium in the Premier League earlier this season. West Ham are unbeaten in five.
