Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has won the Barclays Premier League manager of the month award for October. The Saints beat Swansea and Fulham at home, and drew away to Manchester United during the month, and are currently sixth in the table.

Pochettino told Southampton's website: "I am obviously delighted to have won this award, but I must stress that this is a reflection of the work of many people at Southampton. First and foremost, credit must go to the players for the performances and hard work they have put in."
