Watch as Southampton’s Pierre-Emile Højbjerg kicks Jack Stephens in the nuts while celebrating his goal during the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win at Wigan.

The Danish midfielder opened the scoring in Mark Hughes’s first game as manager before wheeling away in celebration, followed by delighted team-mates.

He leaps into the air ecstatically, but in doing so he plants his studs with some force into his team-mate’s crotch – indeed, the pain is etched on Stephens’s face.

The Saints’ reward for succeeding where Man City failed is a daunting semi-final date with Hughes’s former club Chelsea.
