Mauricio Pochettino feels Southampton are good enough to edge out Chelsea this weekend.

The Saints host the Blues at St Mary’s on Saturday with the Argentine boss feeling confident despite winning just twice since he took over from Nigel Adkins in January.

"I think we had a chance to win in every game we have had, like against Everton and Wigan," Pochettino said.

"From all the games, aside from the QPR one which I wasn't really pleased with my team's performance, I did think we were almost able to win all those games.

"I think against Manchester City and Liverpool we were a lot more effective in front of goal.

"We lacked that kind of effectiveness against the smaller side, but overall I am really pleased with my side's performance and how they have been working."

However, Pochettino was not worried about next week’s meeting with fellow relegation battlers Reading.

"There is less than 48 hours left until we play Chelsea and basically we just need to be fully focused on the game against Chelsea,” he added.

"Next week we will have a lot of time to speak about Reading. For me personally, I am not really influenced by it. I am just really focused on the game against Chelsea."
