The Saints suffered a 2-1 defeat to Premier League rivals Crystal Palace at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Joel Ward fired in from Jason Puncheon's pass to put Palace in the lead, only for Oriol Romeu to equalise six minutes into the second half.
Wilfried Zaha restored Palace’s lead midway through the second half, as the Eagles went on to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Playing the upper hand and some encouraging breaks forward could not prevent us from being knocked out. Now full focus on the PL— Ronald Koeman (@RonaldKoeman) January 9, 2016
Le Tissier’s former club, Eastleigh, are in with a chance of progressing to the fourth round of the FA Cup. Chris Todd’s side, who play in the National League, held Championship outfit Bolton Wanderers 1-1 at home to earn a replay.
