Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is delighted with the early season form of Dejan Lovren.

The Croatia defender proved the matchwinner at Liverpool on Saturday.

"We are very pleased with his goal," reflected Pochettino.

"When we were following him and we were about to sign him we knew of his quality and we knew it would be very easy for him to adapt and establish himself within the league.

"We already knew about his skill and his quality but the three singings that we made, Wanyama and Osvaldo as well, have all settled really well and really quickly so we are very pleased with the three signings."
