Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino was delighted with the manner of their win over Fulham.

Saints boasted 67 per cent of possession in this evening's clash and completed 549 passes in contrast to Fulham's 234 - not that Pochettino is bothered.

"I think statistics are evil," he said. "They don't really show anything.

"Today it is okay as we win, but when you lose they are not as important.

"I think more than anything today it is about how we played aside from the three points, aside from getting the victory.

"Statistics are relative and more than anything I am satisfied with how we won today."
