Southampton's superb start to the season has come to a halt after succumbing to three successive defeats for the first time under boss Mauricio Pochettino. "It is clear that we're on a bad run at the moment. I'm not going to deny that. But we have to be strong, we have to keep on working, we have to keep on working as we have been so far," said the Saints boss after Wednesday's 3-2 defeat by Aston Villa.

"We're experiencing the other side of football, which is a negative side, but we have to keep on going and recover because we have a very tough game on Saturday."
