Chauke was recently named on the bench for the Saints' 1-0 win over Liverpool earlier this month, but didn't get any minutes.

However, the 18-year-old was given his full debut on the right wing by manager Ralph Hasenhüttl on Tuesday night in the FA Cup.

Chauke played 79 minutes in his first appearance for the senior side and also picked up a yellow card as the Saints claimed a 2-0 win over Shrewsbury Town.

As a result, the Saints have set up a fourth-round tie with fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

Bafana Bafana international Percy Tau is also likely to be involved in FA Cup action this weekend as Brighton and Hove Albion face League One side Blackpool.
