Lallana desperate for Southampton to remain in top four

Southampton skipper Adam Lallana is determined to keep the club sitting in the top four on the Premier League table.

The Saints have reached the dizzying heights of fourth thanks to Sunday's 2-0 home triumph over Swansea City which was their third win on the trot.

Lallana netted the opener in the 19th minute before Jay Rodriguez grabbed a second for the Saints with seven minutes left and the midfielder was looking for more of the same as the season progresses for the St Mary's club.

"We have created a great run, and we have a tough game at Old Trafford (against Manchester United) after the international break but we are confident and are building a good young squad," Lallana told Sky Sports.

"We are in the top four and now want to stay there."

He added: "We kept another clean sheet and the back four performed great and (Artur) Boruc made a few great saves, but it is our third straight win on the bounce and hopefully we can continue this form."
